Hi! Planning on a trip from Ohio to Wisconsin. I'll be driving, and will be staying in a hotel for about a week. I'll be traveling through or near Chicago and Gary. I've an Ohio CCH license, and I'd very much like to travel with my SIG P250c, but I'm pretty bad at reading legalese (my eyes tend to roll up and I begin to nod off), and I'd really like to get some advice. What I've come up with is as follows: I can carry in Ohio and most of Indiana, but I'd have to disarm around Gary all the way through Chicago and onto Wisconsin. What I'm not quite getting is transporting my handgun through Gary and Chicago. If I read the Illinois statute 720 ILCS 5/24-1 right, I can remove the magazine, the round in the pipe, and take the slide off, and pack the loaded magazines in one locked box and the separated slide and grip in another locked box, put both locked boxes in the cargo area (I drive a station wagon), and I should be fine in Illinois. Not sure about Gary's laws, but I would think that would work there, too. And I think that will do for the rest of the trip through Wisconsin. Any thoughts? I'm also unsure of how I'd manage at the hotel. Could I bring both locked boxes up to my room and leave them there? Could I reassemble the gun within the hotel room? Am I even allowed to carry in the hotel room? Is it considered a private residence for the purposes of carrying while I'm there? And what about leaving the disassembled gun and ammo in my car while in Wisconsin? Would it be considered concealed if I used the cargo cover? I think someone was convicted of concealed weapon prohibition for driving with a gun locked in a glove compartment (State v Fry, 1986). Thanks in advance!
