    Hey guys,

    Does anyone know if there are laws about concealed shotguns or rifles (they are of legal length)?

    I ride a motorcycle and often want to carry my shotgun or .308 but would rather not draw the attention of just using a sling.
    I was thinking of carrying the gun in a guitar gig bag - so I could be discreet and stop at places (assuming there were no "No Firearms" signs) w/o the store owner calling the cops on a "man with a large gun walking around the store!".

    Is this illegal?

    I've been going over the Penal Codes but cannot find anything.

    Thanks!
    Austin


    P.S.: If this has been covered, I apologize. I wasn't having much luck with the search function.

    This is illegal dude. Get a CHL and a big caliber handgun if you feel that undergunned. ;)

    Hehe. I kinda figured it would be, but one can hope:tongueout:
    Unfortunately, I won't be able to get a CHL until after basic training (Navy), once I'm considered active duty (I'm only 18..).

    And it's not really that I feel undergunned, I just enjoy carrying a firearm
    :fighting0002::devil:

    Thanks for the info!

    There is no prohibition against carrying a shotgun or rifle on a motorcycle either. If it were displayed, you might get a charge of disorderly conduct, displaying a firearm in a public in a manner calculated to alarm, but that's a stretch.

    In a case it is perfectly legal.

    I think you have me mistaken for someone else..
    I have an account on AR15.com (Dragk913) but have zero posts.

    I kinda figured the police would pull a "Disturbing the Peace" or something along those lines.


    A guitar bag is technically a "case".;)
