I had a lead on a good spot to shoot on BLM/Seneca lumber land that would require me to park and hike 2 or 300 yards. I have no CHL yet. I had a holster for my SR9 and was going to open carry it unloaded with the mag unloaded in my pocket or an ammo pouch. Rifle slung on shoulder unloaded mag also stowed. My unloaded revolver in a bag or backpack along with a box of ammo. Before I left I started to get paranoid about the legalities of carrying a gun concealed in a back pack or bag along with ammo maybe in the same bag maybe not. I ended up just taking the 9mm unloaded with the unloaded mag in an ammo belt pouch alongside some ammo. Was I wrong to worry about a gun in a backpack? What about the ammo in proximity?
