    If I git a CCL can I carry loaded rifles & shotguns in my car or is a CCL only for pistols?

    I'd reccomend calling your local law enforcement officer for clarification.....or take the class to obtain your license and ask the instructor. ;)

    In Arkansas it's a CHL(concealed handgun license). How you gonna conceal a shotgun anyway?

    I only know my state's laws (and even then not by heart), but long guns have different rules. Our CCW, called a CHL here, applies only to handguns. Long guns can be in the car, but one must be en route to hunting/fishing.

    I can't imagine a state would have a CCW apply to long guns since there is no real way to conceal a long gun.

    Laws vary state to state, and legal advice here is worth exactly what you paid for it. In MOST states, a rifle or shotgun is not considered a "concealable" weapon. Read the law in your state. In Virginia, it is a concealed HANDGUN license.

    In NC it is a concealed pistol permit. I would look up your local laws or better yet take the class :)

    I find my 1300 tends to chafe in an IWB holster anyway. And in Thunderwear-forget it.

    The reason I asked is I was thinking about having a loaded 12 gauge coachgun in my car's trunk + 1 or 2 pistols on my person.

    Thanks Y'all for your perspectives.

    Obviously, this ain't legal advice, but I can't imagine a state that would disallow having even a loaded long gun in your trunk. Unless the particular person had reasons to be disallowed from possession, obviously.

    And, BTW, unless you are told by a cop, "You are under arrest," you are under no obligation to comply when an officer asks permission to search your vehicle. I, for one, would NEVER allow an officer to search my vehicle when I have an option.

    So a loaded trunk monkey sounds fine in my book!
