Upcoming travel to California

I have an Arizona CCW and am driving to Tahoe. I don’t want to travel unarmed. How much trouble will i be in if caught in california? Can I keep it in my car safe? Once in the state?

Welcome to the family and God bless you.

That is an unfair question to ask as no one here is going to advocate for you to break any laws. Your best bet is to check on the laws of the states you will be traveling to/through.

Here are a couple of videos from 2 YouTube channels I watch that are great references and both support the USCCA.

Most definitely, he grew up out in my neighborhood and lived just north up in the Antelope Valley up until last year. He’s since moved to NV near Las Vegas. He still does great reviews on gear, and updates on laws in
CA. Check out his 2nd Channel Dailys 2A news

In other words; effectively unarmed.

Robin, the only real way to answer this question fairly is to point out, you can either follow the law or disregard it. If you want to know what the law is, read this:
https://oag.ca.gov/firearms/travel#:~:text=Pursuant%20to%20California%20Penal%20Code,or%20in%20a%20locked%20container.

Now, you can either follow said law and be a law abiding person or disregard it. Those are choices left up to you to make.
