I head out West at least once per year on my motorcycle and the good news is, as of this year, my PA CCW is legal in all states along my route...except Illinois. In previous years, I was legal, illegal, legal, illegal etc, as I crossed the country...so things are improving. Here's the question: When touring/camping on a motorcycle packing space is at a premium. When riding through Illinois (I never stop in that state except for gas...I just don't want the hassle) I know that my best legal option is to lock my pistol in a case, separate from the ammunition. But the hard plastic lockable case my gun came in is a bit bulky. Would one of those small cloth pistol cases with a zipper lock satisfy the state requirements? Nothing I've read has been definitive, so I figgered I'd ask around.
