    Really?!? Glad you think you know more than the Attorney General of California and the California Highway Patrol. I would suggest you calm down a little bit, research the information that is already out there done by people with many years of experience, and stop trying to reinvent the wheel, like here:

    California Penal Code 26350 says this:
    http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/di...000&file=26350

    26350. (a) (1) A person is guilty of openly carrying an unloaded
    handgun when that person carries upon his or her person an exposed
    and unloaded handgun outside a vehicle while in or on any of the
    following:
    (A) A public place or public street in an incorporated city or
    city and county.
    (B) A public street in a prohibited area of an unincorporated area
    of a county or city and county.
    (C) A public place in a prohibited area of a county or city and
    county.
    (2) A person is guilty of openly carrying an unloaded handgun when
    that person carries an exposed and unloaded handgun inside or on a
    vehicle, whether or not on his or her person, while in or on any of
    the following:
    (A) A public place or public street in an incorporated city or
    city and county.
    (B) A public street in a prohibited area of an unincorporated area
    of a county or city and county.
    (C) A public place in a prohibited area of a county or city and
    county.
    (b) (1) Except as specified in paragraph (2), a violation of this
    section is a misdemeanor.
    Your advice is only good when transporting a handgun outside an incorporated city or city and county and when not in an otherwise prohibited area of a county (see penal code 26350 above), and when not within 1000' of school premises without a California concealed handgun permit (see 18 USC 922 (q)(2). Otherwise, your advice is a recipe for a misdemeanor convicton. Hardly seems worth it to me, but to each their own I guess.

    One must be extremely careful also if they are going to follow your advice because of the wording of California Penal Code 25400:

    CAL. PEN. CODE 12025 : California Code - Section 12025

    25400. (a) A person is guilty of carrying a concealed firearm when
    the person does any of the following:
    (1) Carries concealed within any vehicle that is under the person'
    s control or direction any pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable
    of being concealed upon the person.
    (2) Carries concealed upon the person any pistol, revolver, or
    other firearm capable of being concealed upon the person.
    (3) Causes to be carried concealed within any vehicle in which the
    person is an occupant any pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable
    of being concealed upon the person.
    Notice the difference between (1) and (2) above... the firearm does not have to be concealed "on the person" inside a motor vehicle vehicle. California Penal Code 25610 specifies the exception to 25400:

    25610. (a) Section 25400 shall not be construed to prohibit any
    citizen of the United States over the age of 18 years who resides or
    is temporarily within this state, and who is not prohibited by state
    or federal law from possessing, receiving, owning, or purchasing a
    firearm, from transporting or carrying any pistol, revolver, or other
    firearm capable of being concealed upon the person, provided that
    the following applies to the firearm:
    (1) The firearm is within a motor vehicle and it is locked in the
    vehicle's trunk or in a locked container in the vehicle.
    In addition, transporting on a public road an unloaded firearm inside a vehicle that is not in a locked container or compartment within 1000' of the premises of any school violates Federal law, unless that person has a permit/license to carry the firearm issued by the same state the school zone is located in (and there are a couple of other non-applicable exceptions in the Federal law). That is 18 USC 922 (q)(2).
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    That was Florida some years ago. The target on your back was the rental car license plate.

    Calm down? WTF are you talking about? I live in Ca. I wasn't stating carry but transport. I can guess your SWO is heavier than your brain.
