    Is it legal to have a loaded handgun in your car in Missouri without a permit, if the firearm is not on you person (glovebox)?

    I could not find anything specific to in cars. Though I did not look very hard. I would guess though that loaded in the glove box would be considered concealed. And that requires a permit. In most states, if the gun is in the car being transported, it cannot be loaded. And the ammo should be in a separate box, unless you have a concealed carry permit.

    As far as I know any law abiding Missouri citizen 21 years of age or older may carry a firearm in the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle. The firearm may be loaded, unloaded, concealed or not concealed. A conceal permit is not required for this purpose. It is a felony though if you have a gun in the passenger area of your vehicle and are drinking.

    However a permit is required if you wish to carry a concealed firearm in public.

    Missouri has many local jurisdictions that may have additional restrictions, so it is important to check local statutes before doing so.

    Yes, we folks, me in particular , do read each and every response. The problem that "you" may have is that I did not click on each and every link to make sure it was not a duplicate of the one I put up. Even if it is, at least there are a lot of people around here trying to help the member out.

    Right?
