OK, this is the way I think about transporting guns.
This is the general rule:
1) Everything needs to be unloaded
2) Everything needs to be in a locked "container." An SUV is not a locked container, but a car trunk is.
3) If you don't drive though any GFSZ, then the rifles don't have to be in a locked container. But the pistols still do, no matter what.
It's safer to start with the assumption that everything must be unloaded and in a locked container
, then adjust as needed.
