Yes. But you understood my points in my previous responses. Illinois is tough but there are legal ways to carry. No it doesn't have to be locked. Yes you can carry in a fanny pack unloaded with a loaded mag by it's side. Again...thanks
Another point that has not been mentioned is that the Supreme Court upheld a ruling that allows you to legally transport your unloaded firearm in the center console of your vehicle...yes that means UNLOCKED. With that loaded mag sitting right next to it u r good to go
I use the same type of pack that comes with the Taurus .380 for my LCP. Nobody questions it and I can wear it with any clothing. I think it is made by Extreme now too. Looks like a large cell phone case and has quick draw holes on the bottom. Even holds the LCP CT.
I do live in Illinois and I personally know the mayor and police chief in the city I live in. They, along with the county sheriff, interpret the law as legal to carry an unloaded firearm in a zipped fanny pack with a loaded mag close by. This is how their officers and deputies are trained.
