Hey everyone I'm new to the forum and just moved here from the police state that is Illinois. I've been digging quite a bit and haven't found an answer to this specific question so here it goes. I'm 1 week from being 21, I live in Orange County, and I'm wondering how I can transport my shotgun legally to Raleigh where I shoot. It's a Winchester 1300 Pump 12 gauge with a pistol grip and a 21" barrel.
From my understanding I could technically carry it slung over my back while riding my motorcycle, but I figured I'd get some other opinions before riding down 40 like that.
Also, I drive a vehicle with no trunk or storage area seperate from the passenger compartment and I'm wondering which of the following locations are legal since I don't have my CC permit:
-locked case in rear of car
-not locked suction cup rack in rear window
Lastly, I can do all of this with it loaded and chambered, correct?
I believe I'm pretty clear on the places where I can't take it, but any helpful advice will be appreciated. No I'm not planning on going to the grocery store with a 12-gauge on my back. I mostly want to avoid getting charged for carrying a concealed weapon in my car, and plan on OCing when I can legally purchase a handgun. thanks, jake
