How Can I Store and Transport My Guns Safely, and What’s A Seat Back Bag?
Why Use A Backseat Gun Bag?
Hunting season will be here before you know it! Here’s a few reasons why you should get a backseat gun bag:
- Safety – instead of being stowed in the back of the vehicle, storing guns in a backseat bag will ensure guns stay clean and secured in place.
- Convenience – backseat gun bags feature full zippers making it easy to retrieve. You can access from the top or either side of the vehicle.
- Concealment – choose a color that matches your vehicle’s interior and it will be unnoticeable when viewed from the outside.
If low-cost, convenient storage is what you’re looking for, then this product is your best choice. Do, however, take your guns out of the sleeves/pouches every other day or so to allow any condensation to be wisked away…airtight storage for an extended period of time can allow condensation to settle in and possibly cause some rust.
**A quick note about legal concerns of transporting long guns in SUVs or Pickups
Gun transport laws vary by state (“may-issue” vs. “shall-issue” is an oft-confused matter), but in general, Concealed Carry applies only to a firearm kept on your body – glove-box carry is perfectly legal (wherever you can legally possess a firearm, basically school and public university/college parking lots are illegal). Is your gun in a purse or in a gun case? That’s legal too. It’s not concealed until you start carrying it outside the vehicle.
As long as the gun is not physically on your body, it is not considered an illegally concealed weapon. A purse, backpack, or gun case on the seat or floor would be perfectly legal. The same goes for a weapon in the glove box or a utility compartment.
Just to be clear, carrying that purse, backpack, or gun case with a gun in it (loaded or unloaded) is still technically illegal without a CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon) permit. Of course, some interpretations of that, such as taking a cased gun into a gun range, would be such an absurdly narrow construction of the law that even if one were arrested for such a violation, it would likely be tossed out of court.
Yes, you can open carry in a car. It’s both legal and possible.
Here are some of the questions that come up with regards to gun transport:
Can I have a round in the chamber of my gun? Yes.
Does my gun have to be visible from the outside of the car? No, your gun doesn’t have to be visible from three side or even visible to the officer, as long as it would be open carried if you were outside the car.
Can I bring a gun in my car without a CCW permit? A gun out of sight in the glove box, under the seat, or in the center console is perfectly legal even without a CCW permit.
Is it legal to conceal my gun while in my car? Yes, your gun can legally be in a box, a bag, a purse, or a case as long as it is in your car.
What’s a violation of the Concealed Carry law? Carrying a gun in a backpack or case OUTSIDE of a vehicle does become legally ‘concealed.’
Small handguns can be stored in a glove compartment or in small purse. In the case of long guns, it is safer to transport these with a gun bag/case.
A backseat gun case safely stores up to three shotguns or rifles on the back of an SUV or pickup truck seat. The gun rack’s design stops guns from slipping and falling, preventing scratching or damage, and it can be set up in seconds. Owners find this product quite useful, especially in vehicles with a second row of seats. Storing shotguns and rifles on the back of seats prevents passengers from stepping on them, making transport more convenient and preventing damage.
This product is perfect for gun owners who want to safely and conveniently transport their firearms in a pickup truck or SUV. Its range of color options can match the interior of just about any vehicle. By keeping guns off the floor, owners can prevent damage to their valuable weapons.
