    Hey all

    this is my first post here.

    have a question and I'm living in san diego, fyi....

    want/need to start carrying outside of the house.

    I have a maxpedtion pack with a ccW compartment.

    questions
    1. does the CCW compartment become a "locked container" when/if i lock it closed?
    2. can I carry an unloaded handgun in a backpack, to say..borders coming from my house, going to another location.
    3. would something like a takedown rifle be a viable alternative?

    i know the backpack idea would be slow to deploy, but the only other option is illegal concealed carry or open carry in parts of san diego.

    I seriously doubt the "locked container" bit would fly in a Kalifonia court.

    I would say the best thing you can do is ask a lawyer that is versed in Kalifornia gun laws in your area these questions. Never take legal advice from a group of strangers on the internet. That is the best way to get your butt in a legal sling.

    I can answer the locked container question...No

    The only sure way to have an undeniable locked container is to get an FAA approved pistol case. Others may work but if an anal LEO wants to push it, you never know how it may turn out.

    Welcome aboard!

    Do you have a Concealed Weapons Permit?

    If you do, you might want to contact the place you took your training to get some help with the legal issues.

    If you don't... I think you're SOL in the People's Republic of California!

    I, too, am from California, and no, don't try it. Of course, I am from the Central Valley, and we would like to declare independence from the rest of the state, but they keep refusing to let us! The container should be a recognizable gun container, the backpack would still be an illegal concealed carry, and a rifle will cause and immediate close relationship with one or more SWAT teams. By the way, welcome to the forum!

    Thanks for the welcome all!


    let me clarify my thinking about packing a rifle.

    1. in the recent mall shooting...most people nearby were able to either exit the mall or we're in hiding in store bathrooms or changing rooms. In this scenario, i'd have the ability to assemble and charge the rifle(s) i'm thinking of and be able to either maintain cover or bug out

    2. the rifle would be completely enclosed in the backpack...no SWAT team needed.

    3. i understand that for quick, armed response it is a poor choice. it would be for the situations that allowed for a bit of lead time.

    4. as far as the backpack handgun, i get the gist that it's probably not going to fly.......i just thought that an unloaded/locked handgun toted around with me would be better than no handgun at all, as the San Diego sheriff would have it. it's all thats needed for car transport, i guess rules change if you're just "walking around" with it


    5. i'm not moving anytime soon.
