I'll be heading east out of Lost Angels, Fruitifornia to buy some much needed property in New Mexico. I am going to take my AR, my SW637, and my .40 Px4. Maybe I'll take a Mauser too who knows.
My questions are of several degrees.
I know California sucks, I moved here from PA last year and I hate it. And against my Beliefs, I follow it's very stupid laws. Once out of the borders, what am I looking at?
Can I carry loaded in my vehicle and/or on my person throughAZ and NM. ( just the smith, not trying to walk around commando with the lot)
What about getting out to pump gas and go into the minimarts.
I'll mostly stick to the 40 (interstate not my Beretta) until the gallop area, then I'll take smaller highways to my new playground
I read both of the laws, but honestly I'd rather hear it from residents or people who have done it and can put it into words my Publicly Educated mind can figure out. And laws don't mean you won't get harassed either.
And what about ammo? I drive a Cherokee so i dont have a trunk, and with my 500+ 5.56 lots o pistol rounds and if I bring the Mauser, shoot ( literally) I might be packing 2000 rounds! ( kind of the point of this trip, new property I gotta break it in). While I am an honest citizen and a proud veteran, all this might raise a brow or two. ( probably just in ca though). But still, aren't you supposed to have guns and ammo separate and locked up through California? How do I get around this?
Any reason I should have any troubles... Sorry this was kind of drawn out, I tried to keep it somewhat entertaining
thanks for sticking through it
