    When transporting a firearm in a car (through Chicago/Cook County/IL, I know the gun has to be locked and in a case.
    Does the ammo have to be in a case and locked as well?

    In chicago I believe the handgun must in "Broke Down" condition and the ammo has to be in a separate case. The way I have been transporting is this:

    When I get done at the range I pull the slide off my glock and use the plastic glock case that comes with the gun to store the pistol and mags. That goes into a range bag. In the range bag I have plano ammo boxes that hold my rounds.

    So I would have to get through 2 different cases/bags to get to my pistol plus put the slide on and then open up a ammo case and load my mags. If police do not think this is good enough then I don't know what else they can ask for.

    If traveling through Chicago with guns, I'd stay on the interstate or main thoroughfares. The law is one thing- what police want to make of it is often another.
