Travelling to California

I will be driving to California in a couple of weeks and was wondering if I could travel with my Glock19 with the 15 round mags.
I already know that upon arrival to Cali that the gun needs to be unloaded and locked in a case in the trunk with the ammo secured seperately.{Made this trip last year and carried a revolver}
I was told that hand guns that would "accept" a higher than 10 round capicity were illegal.
Can anyone clear this up for me {and post links}
Thanks

The gun is fine. You can't bring the 15 round mags. You need ten rounders. You can only have mags that hold more than ten rounds if you are a resident who owned them before 1/1/2000. http://www.ag.ca.gov/firearms/regs/sb23indx.htm. Look towards the bottom of the page. Mark

Railroader's right.

Leave the 15rd mags at home, acquire/travel with 10rd mags for CA use.
The Glock is fine, as is your concept of locked/unloaded status.

Anything above 10rds is a 'high capacity' magazine, and only those of us already in CA and in possession of them before Jan 1 2000 can have them.
(Which is why some of us went nuts and bought bags of hicap mags for guns we didn't even own then!)

Thanks,
I will probably just carry a revolver.
For those of you who live there, one question, why?

Well...it would seem that our trusted rulers are single handidly trying to save the world from guns,global warming,smog and anything else that
they can think of!

I think he meant why do we live here.

As for me, I was sent here by Uncle Sugar, and became a resident so as to pay resident rates for college, and now I have to finish college before I can leave.

And I will leave.

I've got some where the labels came off ... I can't remember what they're for!

To justify the six crates of high cap mags rusting in the garage, and the AR-15's in preservative in the gun safe.

Why do I live here?
I was born here, that's probably the number one reason most people could give you for any location where they live.
Also, I happen to like the weather. Never too cold, rarely too hot; even less often humid.
I can go in the ocean year round, wear shorts most any day of the year, and have mountain snow when I want it.
I have also studied on the beach in February on a 90 day.
I can ride my bike any day I want.
I have no need for storm windows or doors; I don't have to screen in my pool from bugs.
I can, and have, skied and surfed on the same day, within a hour and a half drive!

It's not all about gun ownership, otherwise a lot of states would be vacant.
For me, the PRK is a pretty good place to live, all in all - your mileage may vary.

I have asked many Texans the same question, Why?

Well, I get taxed about 85% less than a resident in California.
My property taxes on 3 acres and a 2400 square foot house just outside Austin are about 100% less than similar property in Cali, there is no state income tax,it cost about $59 a year for auto registration.
We are a "shall issue" state.{A permit at all is repugnant,but at least we are shall issue} I can own a machine gun here.{provided I jump through the BATFE hoops} I can buy a new military pattern semi automatic rifle with 1,000,000 round magazines if I want to. Same with a handgun.
My govenor did not ban .50 caliber rifles.
Some of the cheapest gasoline in the country.
Within a 50 mile radius I have over a dozen ranges{both public and private} I can train at. Some as close as 9 miles.
While cops tend to be pin headed halfwits everywhere{ good cops, all 3 of you, I am not talking about you} at least in Texas the burden of proof is on the state and LEOs have been instructed not to arrest if a person is carrying in their personal vehicle.{See "travelling law"}
