So the other day I was going to the range on my motorcycle. I couldn't fit my pistol box in my backpack, so I just put the pistol in one of the pocket inside the backpack and of course zip it closed. I took out the magazine and put it in a separate pocket (UNLOADED). I did not have any ammo on me or in the backpack. (I bought the ammo at the range).
Is that okay to travel on my motorcycle like that? With the gun in my backpack and no ammo?

On the way home from the range, I got low on gas (not low enough that I couldn't make it home, which I did) and was wondering if I'm allowed to stop at the gas station (use credit card and NOT going inside the store)? Remember I only had the gun in my backpack and NO ammo.

A guy i talked to at the range which also has the Sportsman license, told me that he drive to the range (directly, in a car) with the gun loaded and concealed. Is that even legal?

Call over there and ask. If they let him shoot anything, it'll be a bolt / single action rifle. Same as anyone else without a pistol permit.
I tried to call yesterday but couldn't get through. I did email them and they did get back to me later last night.
Unfortunately he can't shoot anything since he's not a US citizen.

Hmmm.... I just found a copy of the lates PLI handbook and when I read about the Sportsman license, it says at one point "Licensees are authorized to stop only for nonalcoholic refreshments and /or a meal on the way to and from their shooting destination. You are authorized to do this only during the period between leaving your residence and arriving at your shooting destination or during the return trip" So I guess they changed that to NO stopping at all?
