When transporting home from the range ALWAYS watch your mirrors for anyone following you.

If in doubt, or you want to detour to pick up a pizza on the way home, make two U-turns where legal and verify that no vehicle attempts to stay with you.

Great advice given that there have been reports of auto breakins to vehicles parked after a trip to the range. It is assumed the thieves may have followed the vehicle on its return from the range.

If you park with firearms in the vehicle, at least insure they are locked in the trunk if available or out of view of both LE and potential thieves.

Ok I've read the past threads and was still confused, it seems that I've been following FOPA rules since my vehicle has no trunk (SUV). I've been transporting handguns in a range bag and the loaded magazines in a locked ammo can. This thread cleared up things so thank you Blackbeard for asking the questions and everyone else for their answers.

As long as they are not in the firearm, the magazines could be in the range bag as well since I am in MD, my range is in MD, and I never leave the state during a range trip. So I've been lugging around a locked ammo can for no reason the last several months while going to the range.

One of the best things about MDS is the exchange of info that makes shooting easier, safer and LEGAL in most cases

I still feel like I'm breaking a law (or some poor interpretation of it) when I routinely carry in DE with Utah ccw.
Leave home with empty pistol locked in cabled safe in trunk or rear part of truck cab.
Loaded mag(s) and top off round in console.
Drive the 3 miles to put me in DE.
Discreetly load up and holster and go about my day.
Reverse order when close to home.

I can't think of a more legal or stupider way to do it...so it might be good enough for MD.

Unloading to return to Maryland, or going from one state to another is a great reason for a national carry law. The more frequently you are “playing” around with your firearm is more opportunitiy for a discharge.
