    Lame question

    Very sorry for the lame question but here it goes. I'm needing to pick up a pistol that a friend had borrowed a few years ago. I bought it years ago, maybe 20? Whats the best place to have it in the car while bringing it home? I just don't want any trouble if I get pulled over for any reason.


    Again, I know this is such a lame question. But I am not up on any gun laws whatsoever.

    Thanks

So, just stick it in the glove box. That is not concealed. If that doesn't make you happy, put it in the trunk. Since it is not accessible, it can not be "on or about your person" which is necessary for a concealed weapon. Guns in cars are very well protected in Ky. You really have to work or be extremely unlucky to conceal a gun in a car. Don't hide it, don't cover it or allow it to become covered with newspapers or clothing and don't stick it under the seat. It is legal activity, trying to go unnoticed could get you into trouble. Best option, put it in the glove box. I have three guns in my car every day.

    When I'm open carrying and I'm driving in my car, I don't take it off and put it in the box, it stays on me in the open.

    If you're not ashamed to own it, don't be ashamed to open carry it.

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    Concealed carry, where you HIDE the exercise of your right to carry arms.
