    Just unload it, and put the ammo in the glove box. At least look like you were trying to be as responsible as possible, and then find out the legal part from this side of the bars.

    Damn shame Uncle Sam let's 18 year olds carry loaded weapons around but here in the land of the free it's a hand wringing, red flag incident.

    Yes you can. Vehicle is an extension of your home.

    Your vehicle is not an extension of your home, no matter how many times it gets repeated on the internet.

    In Georgia, an 18 year old can carry a pistol in his automobile, which in every day terms, means an automobile he is operating. Presuming he is not otherwise disqualified from owning the firearm. Whether or not it is loaded is irrelevant.. Whether or not it is concealed is irrelevant.

    If you are a passenger and under 21, you cannot possess a handgun in the automobile. Again, loaded or unloaded is irrelevant. The reason is rather convoluted. Any passenger can carry a handgun if he is eligible for a GWL, at 18 you are not eligible unless you are in the military. So that's a "gotcha".

    The ownership of the gun is irrelevant, provided you have permission to possess it.

    This situation can lead to some tricky situations. Say you go to a friend's house with your legally carried pistol in your car. You cannot take it from the automobile to the house without a GWL, which of course you don't have.

    Same thing if you take a road trip, and need to stay in a motel.

    OTOH you can carry a pistol while hunting, fishing, or target shooting without a GWL (make sure to read the rules on doing these if they are an option), so if you are where you are going to engage in these activities, you should be good to go.

    As a footnote, I will tell you that there are many LEO on the streets right now who do not know the law about handguns, automobiles, and 18 years olds. if you carry a handgun in an automobile be prepared to be hassled. While you have the right to carry it on your person while in the automobile, i cannot recommend that you do so.

    As another footnote, even in a car, there may be places you can't park without a GWL, schools and churches come to mind. I haven't looked at this laws in this context but it could be an issue.
