Transporting gun

So how do all you gun loving Cali residents transport your guns? and how do you if you do keep your amo apart from the gun?

Not really an issue for pickup trucks. But for rifles, if I put one in the cab with me, the ammo is in the back. You are not required to lock a case with a rifle in it.

Handguns are different. Must be in a locked box if in the passenger compartment.

  • The twin .50 cals are hard mounted in the bed on a ball pivot so I just keep the link belts in the ammo boxes.
  • The .44 Magnum Desert Eagle is in a kydex holster mounted to the drivers door for quick freeway shootin'.
  • The Glock 20 is mounted just below the Desert Eagle in case it runs out of ammo.
  • The Benelli semi-auto 12 gauge is mounted to a pivot ball on the passenger door window opening.
  • I'm still waiting for the front, side and rear mounted flame thrower tanks to come in.
Just a little California dreaming...

Not in CA. Except by F&G, and then it was a given.

I would love to go cruising with Russ. Maybe West Hollywood during a prop 8 rally.

Yes I have, many years ago.

Unfortunately the truck I was driving sort of matched the one that was used by a guy who had left his house after pounding on his wife for a bit. I had 2 of my 22's, a pistol, a revolver and a couple of shotguns - myself and a buddy were on our way out to the desert. We got pulled over by the CHP out in Banning. They didn't fret about the guns - after they determined that neither of us were the perp.

I think I aged a few years that night.

FireControlman is starting off with a positive reputation.
What is your concern? Are you just heading to the range or inquiring about packing? I'm a long time firearms enthusiast, weapons and tactics trainer, and have been pulled over.

If you get pulled over by the Polezei and they find you don't have a pistol in a locked case, one thing is certain, another depends...

You will have the pistol confiscated, and you may go to jail.

You prolly will have the rifles confiscated also, and you'll have to show proof of ownership to get all the firearms returned.

CA DOJ regulation: ALL handguns must be in a locked case.

Is all this scheiss worth the trouble? A lockable pistol case is 15 bucks or so.

I use a plastic rifle case, with a long shanked padlock, so both rifles and pistolas are locked up.

Do not go by what the BATF regs are when in CA.

The CA DOJ (Department of Justice) has certain laws governing firearms that usurp BATF regs.
