    unloaded in a locked box out of reach. And it better be on the approved list of handguns. So nothing with more then a 10rd mag etc. The California DOJ web site has a few dozen pages of silly laws you can read up on.

    I just moved from CA last year. You might as well not take any guns with you. They'll be useless unloaded and locked out of reach. Take a bat and a knife.

    P.S. You will hear arguments on wether or not you can have your magazines loaded. Technically that isn't loading the weapon, but better safe than sorry when it comes to firearm related incidents with CHP or other CA law enforcement. Check out the www.calguns.net forum for loads of other info on how to transport firearms in CA.

    Sad but true. Love or hate California, I lived there for 25 years serving my country, grew some roots and felt a need to vacation back there this past summer. It's been over a decade.

    Observing their silly*ss laws (most of which came into existence since I came home to Portland), I was prepared to keep a 1911 in a locked box in the back of my car, and Cali-compliant 8-round mags separately in the front. Hardly emergency equipment in that ridiculous configuration.

    As the departure date for my 2-week multi-destination roadtrip drew closer, I agonized about what I'd do with a pistol in that damn box every time I took in ball games (bordering on cavity-search security), hikes, beaches, golf courses, monuments, caves, bases, or tourist attractions. Leave it in a car every time I did something? Guns get stolen from cars, and I know a few guys - in California - whose rather unremarkable stolen rides were stripped to the frames.

    I took some serious knives, a bludgeon/flashlight, and some pepper sprays for everyone, and went without a firearm. Did I feel naked? Yup!

    I hate seeing "those who despise personal freedoms" get their myopic way in such a big, beautiful state. (I rashly used the term "liberals" in another post and was promptly corrected. Which, actually, sort of made my point.)

    Support, second-guess or criticize, that's what I did... and survived.

    Anyhow, Grant, I hope you're able to enjoy your journey, whatever you decide regarding your sorely limited self-defence options.

    I'd like to take my loaded, IWB carried Kimbers to CA if we ever go back to visit friends as well as an AR or KT SU-16C. Guess I'll leave the AR and SU-16C at home and take my Win 1300 12 GA. After all, a shotgun is what Biden says we need. (Yes, I know he says a double barrel one, but mine has 12 rds of Aguila ½ size ammo).

    you can have a non-roster firearm in CA if driving through or visiting, you just can't buy it there or sell it while there...

    the magazine ban is the big clincher though.. technically if you disassemble the magazine in pieces (and preferrably separate them into different bins) they are no longer a magazine with capacity as they are just rebuild kits...

    but as mentioned, this is good only if you're driving through, if you're driving to CA, there's no point...

    I took my xd40sc with me on a road trip once... it was at my bedside at the motel overnight stops but it went into a locked container when I went back in the car...
