    So Its Snowmobile Season...

    Whos out there riding? I hope to be soon...

    Quick question. I know you need a CWP to drive a vehicle down the road, and be loaded and or concealed. NOW..if on a snowmobile, not on a town, or state road, does this rule still apply? The pistol will (Maybe..depending on what you wear..) visible, so its OC. But because your on a motor driven vehicle, is it illegal?

    Just something I thought up the other day...Never know when ya might come upon someone out to do you harm, that or the occasional rouge animal..

    B. A person may not, while in or on a motor vehicle or in or on a trailer or other type of vehicle being hauled by a motor vehicle, have a cocked and armed crossbow or a firearm with a cartridge or shell in the chamber or in an attached magazine, clip or cylinder or a muzzle-loading firearm charged with powder, lead and a primed ignition device or mechanism, except that a person who has a valid Maine permit to carry a concealed weapon may have in or on a motor vehicle or trailer a loaded pistol or revolver covered by that permit.

    41. Motor vehicle. "Motor vehicle" means any motor-driven vehicle, except motorboats.


    If it's loaded you need a CCW permit recognized by Maine.
