Hello,
The wife, kids and I are coming to San Diego for a week this summer. I know that mags over 10 rounds are a no go. I will be leaving my Glock 19 with full cap mags at home and bringing my Glock 30 instead. Can I carry it in the car with me like I do in AZ? What are the requirements for transporting them.

Thanks in advance.

How do you carry it in AZ?

The legal requirements for transporting a handgun in CA is...
1. unloaded
2. in a locked container (vehicle's glove/utility box is not considered a locked container).

CHP FAQ said:
I will be traveling to California and want to carry my weapon. I currently have a concealed weapon permit. How can I legally transport my weapon while driving through the state?

California law does not recognize concealed weapon permits from other states; therefore, they would not be held valid. If you wish to transport a handgun during your California visit, it should be carried unloaded in a locked container. In the absence of a suitable container, you may secure the unloaded handgun in the locked trunk of a passenger car. Ammunition may be kept in the same container or trunk, but the handgun must remain unloaded with no rounds in the cylinder and no loaded magazines in the magazine well.

Thanks for the reply.

Most of the time I have it in a IWB holster. If it is not on my person it is in a holster in the pocket on my door. Doesn't look like that will fly there.

Sounds like you can carry it as long as there is no way you can actually use it if you need it.

So if I understand what I read. The magazine can be loaded and in the same locked container, just not inserted in the gun.

There are two schools of thought on this.

One group says, yes, it's legal.

Other group says, no, it's not legal. This school subscribes to the thinking that a magazine/moonclip is a part of the handgun, therefore it can not have any ammo in them.

I abide by the first group of thought and have not gotten into any trouble over the method of transport you describe (unloaded handgun and loaded magazine in same container).

Pretty much. It seems I recall the gun must be in the trunk. Or some variation of a trunk if you are in a trunkless car.

Anyway, CA really makes no provisions for non-permit holders to carry a gun outside of their house/hotel/campsite.

My advice: Don't go there. Keep your money at home in AZ. Until the anti-gun socialist/communists are out of power in CA, I will not spend a dime of personal finances there.

Put a cable lock around the handle of your Glock case{Locked compartment and legal.} and put it on the back floor board.Put the mag in your console,pocket,glovebox or whatever. Case is locked but still opens enough to get it out if you need it.The cable lock doesnt have to be tight just locked.
