I respect all of you who have responded, but all of you have given misinformation.
Check out CALGUNS.NET. Anyone living in or moving to the PRK needs to be on there if they own a firearm.
You can get a CCW. Some counties are easy, some are not.
You can unload open carry. You can carry the sidearm unloaded on one side of a holster, the loaded magazine <10 rounder, you can carry on the other side of the holster.
You must have your sidearm unloaded and in a lock box when transporting in a vehicle. Loaded magazine may be carried in the same container as long as the sidearm is NOT loaded.
You must lock all firearms up when going through a school zone.
The trunk of a car with no inside access is considered a locked container.
Please visit CALGUNS.
I agree with FS00008. A good 12 gauge pump or double barrel using #2 or larger buck shot is ideal as a HDW.
