Safe on all accounts. Our guitar playing is never hard rock of any kind, though there is some good rock 'n roll mixed in with many other genres in our recorded tunes.

And yes, even though no newer Ossie, I do have a few of the Black Sabbath songs I listened to as a teen, that get played once in a blue moon.

That's a very nice rifle CW - love the craftsmanship on those Henrys. If your travels take you to northeastern NC, drop me a PM and we'll set some cans up in the pasture.

Don't mind Byron - he ain't from 'round here.

I live in N.C. also. Off the Blue Ridge Parkway. In Alleghany County. I second the invitation. We can pop off some caps in my area. Safe travels.

rifle

Just don't take your rifle into Canada. In the US your trailer is considered your home. Best to keep it unloaded or without a round in the chamber.
You can get an apt for your phone that lists all the gun laws for all states.

You can take a "long gun" (rifle or shotgun) into Canada as long as it's not fully automatic. You have to do some paperwork and pay a fee $25. Handguns are prohibited but your beautiful Henry is perfectly legal.

You are on the right track with encased, locked and ammo separate. One other thing that I suggest is having a firearm that is easily disassembled. A revolver with the cylinder stored in a separate case, or bolt action rifle with the bolt removed and stored separate is generally no longer a firearm. At least in the US.

When in an area that assembly is appropriate then assemble. We get some target shooting in on our camping trips up north but don't transport assembled firearms. This also allows us to keep a small case containing the critical components in the car. Breaking into the trailer while we are away yields a criminal with a rather awkward club not a firearm.

Bottom line it falls to you to know what is legal where you are going to be. Some states or municipalities do have local regulations. If you wish to be certain you understand laws that apply or confirm online sources a quick call to the State Police in the states you will be in should suffice. They will not only know the state laws but also be aware of any local regulations in the state which may be more restrictive than state laws.

The problem may not be in transporting a firearm ,
Many State and most private campgrounds do not allow firearms . I have traveled with "Hunting Weapons "on many occasions .The firearm was unloaded ,trigger locked ,cased and stored out of reach . I have never had any hassles with Law Enforcement

Can we please keep the comments on track, to how to properly transport the OP's 22 so as not to raise an issues with the authorities.

I have had to do some thread pruning, and if I have to do any further, it will just be shut down.

Thanks for being considerate.

As I read the OP original question he was more concerned with being hassled by law enforcement, correct me if I'm wrong but law enforcement would need probable cause or permission to conduct any sort of search right? That being the case, unless the weapon was in plain sight or the OP was engaging in behavior that was either suspicious or endangering of others, he shouldn't have a problem. Now I know that different states have different laws pertaining to the subject, but as I read the OP's question I would not think he would have much of a hassle.
