I know all guns must be cased in your vehicle,but when driving thru the woods in daylight,is it ok to have your guns in a gun rack that's visible ??..or how about giving a lift to a buddy to get his truck and he jumps in the back of the bed of truck...does he need a case??

Page 27 under Strictly Prohibited.

 Transporting an uncased firearm in or on
a motor vehicle or ATV or transporting a
cocked crossbow in or on a motor vehicle
or ATV
That means pretty much whenever/whatever you are driving (motor vehicle or ATV), it needs to be cased 100% of the time when you are moving.

jpiney43, how long have you been hunting? This law has been the same since I started 20 years ago? [confused]

let me know how you make out with that.
Yeah really. They definitely MUST be cased. Now, the definition of a "case" isn't defined in the compendium...perhaps something they should add. From what I understand, it can be a soft or hard case, even a gun sock (i.e. a type of soft "case"). Either way, it must be unloaded and "cased" (not sure a tarp or newspaper will fly though) during transport.

A gun sock is fine. We were checked a couple years ago. When they asked if I had a gun I went in the truck and got it. Never said anything when I pulled the gun out in the sock.

Hunterdan199,

You finally pick a time to try to add value to a thread and you're dead wrong....

I guess you should stick to just replying with smilies...[rofl][rofl][rofl][rofl]

As I was leaving the back of a clubs Van I had the gun partially uncased and was pulled aside to be written a ticket but I flashed LEO Credentials and got off with a warning. Also seen a guy with his barrel hanging out of a hole in the case and was given a warning.

My buddies and I had our shotguns uncased on a rack in our trucks growing up in Park Ridge in the 60's. We'd hunt after school or skip school. My dad literally hunted on the way to school in the same town, left his shotgun outside against the brick wall of the school and went to class. He then hunted on the way home, checked his traps, and fed his family. Hard to believe but true. Now if I head to Cherry Ridge to shoot I feel like a criminal in my van. Sick.

it is legal to have an uncased gun in a vehicle as long you have an open container of alcohol and live in texas
