Hmmm, I'm not sure about that interpretation.

a shot gun or an air weapon shall be deemed to be loaded if there is ammunition in the chamber or barrel or in any magazine or other device which is in such a position that the ammunition can be fed into the chamber or barrel by the manual or automatic operation of some part of the gun or weapon
To me it seems a bit of a stretch that a loaded mag in one's pocket, and especially one's gun case, could be deemed in "such a position".
