Visiting the PDRC

OK, so I have to make a trip to the Peoples' Democratic Republic of California to visit my son. I have scoured the web for info on taking a 15 round magazine for my 19 into the evil state.

It appears to me that I would be "importing" a "large capacity magazine" into said Marxist empire. So, being a good American citizen and fearful of the zealots in PDRC, I bought two 10 rounders to take on the drive.

Naturally, I must stop before crossing into the socialist utopia, unload the 19, lock it in a hard case and place said case in the rear of my Yukon so I cannot access the gun while driving. The magazines will stay up front in the console.

Any obvious flaws in my plan?

Reads like a well thought out plan, sad as it may be.

Sounds like a fun trip. But now I am wondering which state has more Glocks, Texas or California.

Next question:
Is your G19 approved for sale in CA?

If it's not on their approved list, you might have the same problems as with the 15 rd mags.
Or they may treat a personally owned gun differently from mags, I don't know.

I may have to go there later this year, same questions with my third-gen G19 and new G42.

G19 is. Not seeing the 42 on there.

OP ... If you have a CCW, won't hurt to bring that along.

Not all LEO know all rules so also print out something that shows your G19 as CA approved.

Also, be sure what you're locking it in is approved too, I don't recall a plastic gun case being ok, but I may be wrong.

EDIT - Official CA poo https://oag.ca.gov/firearms/travel

When visiting CA you can bring in an off roster (their DOJ has a roster/list of guns you can purchase) as long as it does not have a magazine with more then 10 rounds, (before you used to be able to bring in a high cap mag that was fully taken apart into parts but now thats illegal, even just the body of a 15 round mag is illegal), , you cannot have a threaded barrel in the gun, if you have a compensator thats attached to the gun by a threaded barrel its has to be permanently affixed to the barrel, also depends on where your going (in San Francisco, SFO Airport and County there is a list of banned Hollow Points
http://sf-police.org/index.aspx?page=4211).

http://www.gunlaw.com/gun-law-articl...-vehicles.html

As for having the loaded mag in the front console or within reach I dont know. For me I travel there often and just store it in the trunk. There has been a heated debate in the past about if you can store it loaded in a the same locked container. As far as I know you can as long as its not attached/fixed to the gun but I just store it separately to avoid any issues.

Best to ask your questions here for the most updated info.
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/f...play.php?f=349

If you contact the CA DOJ by email you may not get a response back for weeks to months. Best case is to call by phone write down who you talked to and the CA Penal Code number so you can print it out if you get pulled over/questioned. Keep in mind that if you go to Calguns.net they will tell you DOJ isnt the most reliable source of info. And frankly in my experience even they arent always correct with their answers so get the code, look it up and verify what the person tells you with whats legally written.

Good Luck

I do not wonder what it's like to live in a state where... were you to come under siege, you would be easily outlasted and outgunned by just about anyone except the tri-state area of NY/NJ/CT
