Word on the streets today one of our friends and fellow fine trapshooter recently returned home from a hunting trip to IL. after a major incident. It seems his truck was totaled by a tractor trailer on the way home. Physically he's alright but the state trooper felt it his duty to arrest our friend for possessing an unloaded muzzleloader uncased on the rear seat. He now has to return to IL for a hearing in the near future. I'm sure he's accustomed to PA rules where many pickups wear a 30-30 in a rack attached to the rear window. I often drive to local shoots with my trusty SX-1 sitting in the passenger seat never giving it a thought I'd be doing something illegal. Trapshooters should be aware traveling in IL with an uncased gun could be a problem.
