    I went through a license checkpoint on the way home from work earlier today with my Mini-14 on the back seat. I told the trooper it was there and that it was unloaded, and he asked me if I had a permit for it. I was like ".....I need a permit for a rifle?" He asked if the back door was unlocked, so I unlocked it, he opened it, took a glance at it, and said, "Oh, you're hunting. It's cool. Have a good evening" and walked off to the next car.

    Did he think I was talking about a pistol, or was he worried about hi-cap magazines (it has a 10 rd in it right now)? I thought since the AWB was allowed to sunset, hi-cap magazines aren't restricted anymore, even in a post-ban weapon. Was I wrong in having an unloaded carbine on the back seat with a 10rd magazine and no proof of ownership on me (I keep it here at the house)?

    You should hunt around your state website, that will be much more reliable than stuff floating around the web that may be outdated, etc.

    But Packing.org is a pretty informative place to hang around.

    As I recall, NC has some pretty funky gun laws.

    I THINK it's pretty much universal that if the weapon has a detachable magazine, the magazine must be removed (even if empty) and stored separately from the weapon.
    I know in PA, the weapon must be in a part of the vehicle that is "inaccessible" to the driver, i.e. in the trunk, or the rear cargo area for K5/'Burb type vehicles; and must have a trigger lock on it. If the magazine is detachable, it must be removed and stored in a different location than the weapon. Ammo must also be in a different location than the weapon.

    Might not be a bad idea to burn a copy of your proof of ownership to wallet-size and carry it with you...

    He probly didnt know what a Mini-14 is or was one of the LEOs that thinks they are the only ones who should have a gun. They aint all like that but they are out there. Thats why I never say up front if I have a gun in the truck. If they ask I wont lie about it but I will not volunteer that information. Proof of ownership was I sposed to keep all them papers :doah:
