With only a couple of VERY SPECIFIC EXCEPTIONS, you cannot transport a handgun in Indiana without a license. It doesn't matter if it's loaded or broken down into its component parts.I had seen this quote from someone on here and was wondering about this......
" Yes unfortunately we have to have a license to even go the the range."
Is this true? I go to my gun club about every other weekend to shoot my pistol and I don't have my CC license yet. Am I breaking some (completely stupid if it's true) law? I am transporting it while it's unloaded and Ikeep all the clips empty untilI get to my shooting stall. My club's rules are All firearms are to be in a case and unloaded UNLESS you possess a carry permit. When I lived in MI it's100%legal to transport firearms without aconcealed weapon permit as long as the gun isNOT loaded and the ammo is separate. I guess this is what I'm used to and that's how I treat it here. If anyone knows the correct answer please share.
Carrying a handgun without a license or by person convicted of domestic battery
Sec. 1. (a) Except as provided in subsection (b) and section 2 of this chapter, a person shall not carry a handgun in any vehicle or on or about the person's body, except in the person's dwelling, on the person's property or fixed place of business, without a license issued under this chapter being in the person's possession.
(Here are the exceptions):
(11) any person while carrying a handgun unloaded and in a secure wrapper from the place of purchase to his dwelling or fixed place of business, or to a place of repair or back to his dwelling or fixed place of business, or in moving from one dwelling or business to another.
None of the above applies to taking it to the range. In fact, that's why Indiana has a "Target and Hunting License". Yes, it's stupid. It's still the law.
