Hummmmmm ....... I'm not too sure that's legal.
If you have the hunting/trapping permit issued by your county treasurer you can not carry a loaded revolver in your vehicle. You got to load and unload as you come and go.
Now if you have the concealed carry permit and that permit only, you can not use that permit to hunt and dispatch. The concealed carry permit is issued only by county sheriffs and has absolutely nothing to do with outdoor sports.
If you want to dispatch using a revolver you carry on a concealed carry permit, before doing so you better make a quick stop at the county treasurers' office first.
FYI: I have both permits, a concealed carry permit to protect my old worthless bag of bones and a sportsman's permit issued by my county treasurer in case I run across an unruly coon that stepped into one of my mink sets and refuses to be let go.
Regardless what type of permit you have, a semi-automatic weapon, specifically a pistol in this case, may not be used for dispatch. Revolvers and single shots only.
