    In AZ you can drive through the reservations with your firearm, concealed or not, as long as it's legal in the surrounding county, and as long as you stay on federal and state highways. I'd think CA is the same...

    That IS the best place to get a steak in Flagstaff, I would also recommend it highly. If you are just passing through and want to stop someplace near the highway, go to Black Barts, #2 on my list...IMO

    I'll be spending the night in Flagstaff on the return trip and the Horsemen's Lodge is only a couple of miles from my hotel. Then the next morning we'll try Brandy's Bakery and Restaurant for breakfast! Gotta keep your strength up on long drives like this!

    San Diego is where I'll be headed to in a couple of weeks. Do you also lock up your ammo? I can't find any requirement to do so, but another person here says it's a good idea to keep some LEOs from getting upset. Don't need any problems! Just want a nice, enjoyable trip!

    In PRK do the magazines need to be unloaded as well?

    You do not need to lock up your ammo in CA. The law states that the handgun must be unloaded and in a locked container, specifically NOT a glove box or console. You can keep a loaded magazine inside the locked container with the unloaded pistol. Make sure that you have completely emptied the pistol, including the chamber! If you are driving a truck with a locking bed, that qualifies as a locked container.

    If you are stopped for a traffic violation (like speeding across the desert...) and are asked by LEO if you have any firearms in the vehicle, simply state that you do not have anything illegal in the vehicle. Say nothing more. If LEO asks again, repeat the generic answer and ask him bluntly if you are free to go. Unless LEO sees a locked case, ammo boxes, etc., he is just fishing and has no probable cause to search or further detain you. This applies to every state, not just CA. We just seem to be well acquainted with the legal issues due to our rather hostile political climate.

    I'd like to caution here that there is a huge amount of FUD regarding CA's laws. Go to Calguns.net for more info specific to CA.

    I agree with you about the hostile political climate, but some states have laws that specifically require you to volunteer the information that you are armed when stopped by an officer.

    OUTSTANDING cuts of meat! I was there last night.
    I was with a LEO buddy visiting from Colorado, and we both remembered we needed to disarm before going in.
    There is no restaurant in Flagstaff that jeans would be inappropriate. As a former flagstaff resident, gotta give a big +1 to Horsemen's. Brandy's is good, but a little fru-fru (maybe the girldfriend would like it). If you're in the mood for Italian, try Strombolli's (it's on Milton).

    Thanks for the information. Since I don't have to lock up my ammo that's one less container to mess with. I was going to lock my magazines up in the case my Sig came in, but since it's says "Sig" in big letters it just screams "gun" to anyone that looks. My Sig will be locked up in my COM safe under the seat and out of sight!

    I'll be armed in every state except CA. Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona all honor my CCL. Unfortunately I won't have time to see the sights in San Diego. As soon as I pick her up we'll be heading back with a stop-over in Flagstaff for the night.
