Spending some time in California, I have looked at the web site for States' concealed carry, and plan on traveling with the firearm locked in a hardshell case in the vehicle, unloaded and with unloaded mags. Firearm will be kept loaded and ready at vacation residence only, I will NOT be attempting ANY concealed carry traveling. Does this sound feasible?
I consulted calguns website about that very thing. The answer I received was that you could even leave the mags loaded while locked in the hardside case (but magazine must not be in the gun). The hitch is that ALL magazines you possess need to be of a capacity of 10 round or less. May be prudent to verify as this was a bit over a year ago. s.

I used to do Phoenix to Fresno a good bit. Twice a month or so. Had kids on board each trip. I kept a loaded semi-auto in either the trunk when traveling in the 'open' spaces - or in the glove box/console anytime we stopped or were in a built up area. Everyone on board knew it was there.
As we would approach the bridge over the Colorado River on I-10 going to California, about 1/3 of a mile out, I would begin chanting, "Citizen. Citizen. Citizen..." and as soon as we got halfway across the bridge, I would chant, "Felon. Felon. Felon." The best part was on the return trip..."Felon, Felon, Felon...Citizen!"
The kids got a kick out of it. They knew we had firearms, shot them, enjoyed them - and we lived a good life. Them learning that ONE change could make them a criminal because of politicians that hoped to enslave them was priceless.
I don't care what their laws are. I don't carry or not carry to please them and their edicts. I carry to protect myself, my family, and those that aren't able to protect themselves. They will have to kill me to stop me from doing so.
Don't go there anymore and do as little business with companies from there as possible.
