Hi all. I may not post much at first, but rest assured I am reading and learning. (I found out about you from m1911.org.) I just got my first gun (SA Loaded Parkerized) a couple weeks ago, and I am still waiting for my permit to be able to take it out to the range.

If I can get SWMBO on board, I am looking forward to having a lot of fun.

Welcome aboard. I'm relatively new to this forum as well. You will find some very knowledgeable people here. I didn't know you needed a permit to transport a firearm in Indiana?

I may not have full information, but from what I have been able to find, handguns require a permit in Indiana, unless you have it with you at home, in your business, at a range for an organization that can buy guns from the government, or going between those places, or on the way to a gunsmith.

I'm not a member of any organization that qualifies yet.

However, if I'm wrong, I'd love to be corrected; I have about 6 weeks left until the permit should be issued.

Well I'll be damned! I found and read the law and it does appear you are correct. Things sure are different down here in the south.
I'd go for the lifetime permit if I were you. Good luck.

I am sure it's legal to transport an unloaded and cased firearm to the range for target practice without a permit but you may want to call the local PD to find out for sure.

Indiana is pretty laid back when it comes to gun laws and find it hard to believe they would make such a law.

Thanks. I joined a local club with a range a couple days ago, and I went out to try my gun yesterday. It shoots really well, and I only had one FTE during over 200 rounds of four different brands of FMJ (Wolf, Blazer, Winchester, Remington) The last case in my first magazine of Remington got jammed between the magazine lips, the ejector, and the breech, but didn't cause any damage to anything. My gun definitely shoots better than its owner. Here's a picture:
