I currently live in New Mexico where the handgun laws aren't that strict. I own three handguns, however in a couple of months I will be getting out of the military and moving home to Upstate New York. I am in the process of getting a pistol permit in New York, but it takes awhile and I will not have it by the time I move home. I plan on keeping them with my uncle who has a permit. The question is can I drive home with my handguns without getting in trouble?

Gun laws are strict...you would be better off having the guns shipped to NY via FFL...you dont wanna be pulled over w/ a gun in a state that does not honor your CCW..if you have one...if you dont have one, you definatley dont wanna get caught w/a gun in your car.

Not so.
Check out the Firearm Owner's Protection Act, signed into law 1986, designed to protect firearm owners from various state laws while traveling.
