No need, carry it empty and pointing in a safe direction, where's the muzzle pointing when you take the cover off at the peg? There should never be any stray pellets, that's why most decent clubs run at a 100% safety record. Bear in mind Matt, the type of shooting we do is a lot different to Practical shooting which is where the rule has come from.
