Here's a link to U.S. gun laws that may be helpful.

Handgunlaw.us

Also, I believe the NRA has a website which has good info.

Here's a link to it. http://www.nraila.org/GunLaws/

I believe there is a federal law covering transportation of handguns when traveling through states.

Main thing, as already posted, don't rely on forum info & there's even a chance that the local LEOs may be mis-informed.

Yea, California is pretty resrictive. I had to make a trip there a few years ago. I don't remember everything. But I researched it before I went. It was so resrictive and stupid I just left my carry gun locked up in my safe at home. Here in Colorado you can keep a loaded handgun in the car within reach. You can not conceal one one your person without a permit. But just about anywere else in the car is ok.

LEO's are notorious for providing incorrect legal information.

YOUR state law matters.

For example, I was told that the magazine had to be unloaded, ammo stored separately from the firearm, and the firearm in a locked case in the trunk.

NONE of that is true. MI law is quirky, and really requires legal review, and an LEO is a poor read of the law.

That's a broad and ignorant statement

When I lived in the PRK the firearms and ammo had to separated and the unloaded firearm in a locked case. Kind of difficult in a PU. I used to put both in locked cases. I dont see where the law would have been made more lenient in the PRK. Stupid laws got some guns stolen. Thieves would catch someone leaving the range and rob them. Spotter at the range would let them know what was worth stealing or whether it was a leo.

MI firearm laws are complex and confusing. Most LEO's do not take the time to understand the complexities in their advice or enforcement.

In addition, in my small town, I have had some discussion with LEO's in town about some other issues, and their legal understanding if often totally wrong. I'll give you an example, MI it's illegal to set up broad form DUI check points, as ruled by the state attorney general. So, the local geniuses came up with the plan to mark all the tires at a bar and sit down the road pulling over any car with marked tires. Can you spell targeted enforcement? When I challenged the legality with the Sgt (neighbor) he said until someone sued them, it was legal. In talks with the Chief, he said, I can't control what my officers do. By the time the bar figured out what was going on, they were getting hit with state mandated shutdowns and legal defense fees and eventually went bankrupt. Police dept moved on to the next place that served alcohol and continued the process. The irony of their actions, the city lost so much state shared revenue (from lost local state sales taxes), they have had to lay off some police officers, and at times leave the city without any coverage at all.
