The more that I watch the news — the more that I don’t want to leave the house.

Very few guns are actually "illegal guns."  A gun misappropriated by a criminal is no more of an "illegal gun" than a stolen car is an "illegal car."

Again the range officers are probably not the problem. Some State Troopers on the other hand would just love to collar an otherwise law abiding gun owner. They are low hanging fruit.  Apparently people have been hassled just because they have a carry license from another state and searched.  
A Florida man, who had a concealed carry permit and had left his handgun at home, was travelling with his family through a Baltimore tunnel was pulled over by the MD Transit Authority. Their vehicles was strip-searched for 1 1/2 hours before being allowed to repack and continue.
IIRC, Maryland collects license plate info from states that allow bulk access and scan for those plates where cameras exist. Also IIRC, Delaware does not allow that access but police can call in to check DE CCDW permits.

https://attorneygeneral.delaware.gov/criminal/concealedweapons.shtml
Law enforcement officials from other jurisdictions can verify Delaware CCDW permits by contacting the Delaware State Police Headquarters on a 24/7 basis via NLET.AM directed to DEDSP0000 or by calling 302-659-2341.

I remember that happening. I wonder if the guy ever sued the MTA. I would have.

The MTA officers questioned everyone in the family separately. They asked the wife and she said "He has a firearm" (meaning he owns one) and the MTA grilled the husband for a while trying to get him to tell them where is firearm was, which he repeatedly said "At home in Florida."

Sounds like the whole family (especially the wife) talk to much.

Instead of starting a new thread I figured I would just piggy-back off of this one....I am getting ready to go down to Outer Banks in a few weeks and the shortest trip obviously is down through the tunnel.  I have read several of the MD threads on here including this one and want to play it as safe as I can.  I plan on bringing a few handguns with me all unloaded and locked in a small sentry safe chest.  I also plan on unloading all mags and storing the ammo separately in a locked ammo storage can.  Do you think I should put the empty mags in with the unloaded handguns or store them with the ammo or does it not really matter?  Or do you think I need to invest in a third lockable container just for mags?

Also, everything I am reading on this forum suggest it is ok to travel through MD with mags that hold more than 10 rounds.  I am planning on bringing some 15 and 17 rounds mags with me so I assume this will be ok even though MD residents cannot possess them?  Kind of scary thinking about this trip even though it is a relatively short distance from MD to VA line.

Does all of this reasonable as a method of travel or am I missing something?

Thanks!

That's about as good as you  can do. You only  have the Federal Firearms Transportation Act to  back you. But, one thing you  can do is to make sure you don't violate and speeding  laws,  or any thing that would give the MD.,  VA., or NC. cops a reason to pull you over,   write a ticket or search   your  vehicle. I  know when people get out on the highways  going on a fun time vacation, they get a little heavy footed. For a gun owner and carrier this could be a disaster.

Put the mags with the ammo. Both guns and mags separately out of reach, preferably in the trunk. Travel safe.

If you're traveling in a pickup, a lockable toolbox in the bed is just as good as a trunk.
