I hope this is the right section for this question. One of my brothers is stationed at Ft. Stewart, Georgia and I plan on driving there. I don't have a CHL, but would like to take my pistol with me. Are there any Federal laws that cover the traveler and transportation of firearms? Would it have to be in a locked case? I plan on driving a pick up truck there and back, so there won't be a trunk to lock it up in. Does it have to be unloaded? I will be driving across Texas (no problems) then La, Miss, al and then Ga. Sounds so complicated! Thanks!
