Storing firearms in Nevada or thereabouts temporarily?

    In about 5 years I am going to retire.

    The "plan" is to do a bit of traveling with a 4x4 RV, with dirt bikes and firearms - to do some riding and shooting and maybe some hunting.

    I have a number of firearms that I might like to take with me that are not legal in Calif.

    I am aware of the fed. law protecting me if I am "passing through", but I have relatives in S. Calif. I might like to visit and then go on to other destinations.

    I wonder how I could store a firearm in a state - like Nevada - temporarily, such that I could come back through the state where it is legal, and pick it up and go on about my business, thereby satisfying both state and federal law by not staying overnight in a state where the firearm is effectively "banned"?

    I don't want to store the firearm with an FFL because, as I understand it, they would need to log it into their books. When I retire I intend to declare residency in a "free state" (if any are left) and thereby get any firearms I bought since the BGC went into effect, "off the books" so to speak.

    No - I don't know people in these states, much less people I would trust to store my firearms for me.

    Thoughts?

    Surely you carry a shovel in your rig.

    I would like to leave my firearms somewhere a little more secure than a hole in the ground.

    I was going to suggest a pawn shop as security for. A small loan. But that would also involve a 4473.

    Self storage places are one option.
    If they are handguns, suppressors, SBR-Lower, or sub-guns, a safe deposit box in a bank.

    True.

    I've had friends who have had stuff stolen from storage. People rent a unit next door and then cut a hole in the wall and steal stuff. I have a friend who used to be the onsite manager/et. al. and he had to deal with that all the time, then later he stored his own stuff and had some of it stolen by some crack heads.

    I am just going to do a pass on this. If I decide I am going to visit anybody in Calif. then I will just not take any "evil" guns with me that trip. Not worth the hassle. I don't like the L.A. area anyway.
