The easiest (but not the only) method to legally transport a handgun is
+
* unloaded
+
* in a secure locked case
+
 
+
YES, you may have ammunition in the same case and compartment as the gun.
+
 
+
YES, your magazines for semiautomatic handguns may have ammunition in them.
+
 
+
YES, your speed loaders for revolvers may have ammunition in them.
+
 
+
NO, no law requires the locked case to be in a trunk of a vehicle; the locked case may be in any part of your vehicle that you like.
+
 
+
NO, you may not use the glove box or center console to transport your unloaded handgun unless the handgun is '''also''' in a separate locked case.
+
 
+
YES, you may transport the locked case in a backpack or a cargo container on a motorcycle.
+
 
+
NO, there is no legal definition of ‘secure locked case’.  There many varieties offered commercially; if you don’t personally think one is ‘secure’, buy one you think '''is''' secure.
+
 
+
NO, a ‘cable lock’ or ‘trigger lock’ can NOT replace the locked container.
+
 
+
YES, your locked trunk can be used as the only locked container, but you will probably find separate locked containers more convenient.
