I think you better brush up on the law in AZ.
Didn't run into any trouble while in Tucson, however, I did find out from more reading that current case law in AZ reads that if a person can't see your gun from outside the car, then it is considered concealed.
Thanks to State v. Adams and State v. Moerman (http://www.azcdl.org/html/educational.html
)conditions like "obvious to a casual observer" also come into play when reading ARS 13-3102.F. In a vehicle that has come to mean that it is obvious to someone outside the vechicle that there is a gun inside the vechicle.
ARS 13-3102.F (second sentence) deals with carrying in a car but the Adams decision pretty much negated carrying in a car without a permit. But last session AzCDL succeeded in having the words "map pocket" added into the law as a place to carry a holstered gun. The new wording is subsequent to the Adams decision but map pocket is not defined. It appearsit is being interpretedthat any compartment in a car is a "map pocket" - which gets us back to carrying a holstered gun in the glove compartment, until another activist anti-gun judge determines otherwise.
HB 2389 would have eliminated these, but the Governor vetoed it on 7/7/08.
