    Does anyone have concise info about traveling with a firearm and whether it can be in lunge range encased and unloaded?

    It's been debated extensively on here. I say yes, some well-intentioned people disagree. They're wrong.

    Your attorney should answer that question for you.

    Mine sits right behind me. It is in a case, and is also unloaded. My mag. is in my holster.

    I typically transport my gun on the passenger seat unloaded encased... Well within reach. Just like the Wisconsin DOT website says:

    Your firearm does NOT need to be out of reach. You can read the laws, they say nothing about out of reach. Some people here say different. They are wrong.

    What is the legal method of carrying a weapon in my vehicle in Wisconsin?
    With the weapon cased and unloaded. Applies to firearms and bow hunting equipment.


    thanks for that link WCI

    "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."

    To “go armed” does not require going anywhere. The elements for a violation of
    s. 941.23 are: 1) a dangerous weapon is on the defendant’s person or within reach;
    2) the defendant is aware of the weapon’s presence; and 3) the weapon is hidden.

    This is not for vehicle carry.

    If a bow's string is removed is does not have to be cased. Besides, having to case a bow is asinine. Don't think I ever read a story about a gangbanger committing a drive by bowing!

    I used to keep mine in my trunk, which was extra pain when holstering up when I got somewhere. I will probably start keeping it under the passenger seat, then soon as I stand up outside of the car, holster up and throw the case down on my drivers seat. It will cause less of a scene, and I don't have to go into the trunk each time.

    No that is a fact, if you place the firearm under the seat even though it is encased and unloaded it is still concealed from plain view.

    My suggestion would be to leave it "ON" the seat.

    But hey to each his own, it is not like I have to pay your fines.
