Since way back when I just don't carry loaded mags even if there is a legal ability to do so. I know it's illegal for them to be easily accessible and could get into trouble if I began carrying them around in a way to be construed as 'accessible'.

I also will put the ammo in a separate bag to be married up with my range bag when I get to the range. I'll put the ammo and gun(s) in separate locations too, for the most part.

Without a range bag where do you put your shoot-n-see dots, stapler, tape, binoculars, leatherman, chamber flags, ammo, chapstick, Tylenol, glasses, the other glasses, headphones & spare batteries, ear plugs, the other ear plugs, and Israeli bandage?

But since it is an interpretation, it could be changed just by the AG issuing a new letter saying loaded mags are NOT OK.

They could say whatever they want but there is no law in MD that says you canít so until that changes, itís legal.

One aspect not discussed in this thread:
While you may have a letter from the AG, you may have the opinion of 5 attorneys, You may be a NRA instructor,
None of that matters while you are on the side of the road with the MSP going through your vehicle, If he/she has a hard-on for you, doesn't like your bumper stickers, etc, etc
You "may" get your firearms back "eventually" after spending how much on those 5 attorneys?

States Like MD intentionally write loose and confusing laws,, to be interpreted with a political bias.

... and you could just put all this in a bag you already have, but it's easier to buy another bag specifically for the range than to explain to TSA why there's a handfull of loose rounds in the bottom of your carry-on that you left behind from your last range trip.

I can tell from you post that you donít shoot much or often

Youíre right that you donít need a range bag. Just get yourself a couple of gunnysacks to tote your stuff.

There is nothing in the law for transport in MD about accessible or not accessible.

Only that the handgun must be in an enclosed holster or case. And you must be going to/from home, range, or gun store.

Accessibility IS part of FOPA in transiting states.
