Hello. I am a new member and I'm sure I'll enjoy reading Q&A responses. I have a ccw since last fall. The question arose with my family members who also have ccw's is: While hunting (deer, rabbit, etc) can the rifle or shot gun or black powder gun be legally carried within the moving vehicle while loaded and be cover under my ccw license.

I believe the answer is no. Your CCL only covers handguns.

There are a number of hunters on here that will correct me if I'm wrong.

On your private property is another story....

A rifle or shotgun cannot be transported loaded in a motor vehicle, even with a CHL (concealed handgun license).

Not sure about a black powder / muzzle loader rifle but I suspect the same rules apply.

IIRC - To transport a BP/ML weapon it has to be made harmless by, at least, removing the cap/primer.

Right. The muzzleloader is "unloaded" if the primer or cap is removed.

Surveyor:

Welcome aboard!

Please have a look at the sticky referenced in the "Forum Rules" masthead at the top of this page. It's not mandatory, and may be hazardous to your health....

It's a "Concealed Handgun License". (We usually call it a "CHL", not "CCW" but that's not important.) The key is that it only covers handguns. Rifles and shotguns aren't included. You can still own them, or transport them (and Open Carry them), but in a vehicle they must be unloaded. Nothing in the chamber, although the magazines only need be stored "elsewhere" in the vehicle. (Things like my little Mossberg shotgun, with tubular mags, require that the tube be empty.)

Regards,

Stu

welcome surveyor! ...as others have stated, long guns cannot be "loaded" in a vehicle... however magazines/speedloaders/etc for long guns can be loaded, if detached from the gun, and stowed in the manners allowed by the law...

Welcome Surveyor, in addition to the good advice given above I'll point out that even if it were legal, having a loaded rifle/shotgun/muzzleloader in a vehicle is a bad idea. Many of them aren't drop safe and can fire (and have!) when bumped in a moving vehicle.
