Can I bring a gun in a locked case across state lines?

I'm moving from Indiana to Vegas and I'm taking a UHaul. I'll be passing through quite a few states, so wondering if I can legally bring my gun locked in a case with me? Will I get arrested if pulled over? Thanks. Leaving next week.

    Have it in a locked case in the back of the U haul and unloaded and the bullets in a separate area.

    I would suggest that you obtain a weapons carrying permit prior to moving.

    I do not do law in most of the states you will be driving through. You MUST unload the gun before locking it in the case to legally drive through Colorado, and have any shells or cartridges separate from the gun.

    If the gun is unloaded and in a locked case, and not in the passenger compartment of the car, you should have no problem in transporting it to Vegas. However, you should check with the authorities in Nevada about registration of the firearm once you arrive there.

    If you have a pistol and have permit, yes. Any other gun, yes. Highly advise all be in a case, and not within reach, and not loaded. Preferably, in the trunk or even the trailer.
