My wife and I are planning to spend the holidays in the Peoples Republic of California this year and naturally I don't want to be that far from home unarmed. However, since fleeing the PRC a number of years ago I have not kept up on any new gun control laws. I'll be toting my daily carry (9mm, 7rd mags) to the border, then I was planning on unloading it, locking it in a little box, and calling it good. Any other suggestions? I don't want to run afoul of any authority if for some reason it came up. We will also briefly be passing through Nevada, and Arizona. I hear AZ is good to go. Thanks.
