    Let them ask, you're already in California by the time you hit the check point, and they can't prove you came from Arizona. I recently drove back from AZ in the middle of the night, with a rifle and handgun in trunk. No questions.

    I have travel regularly to/from Yuma. One checkpoint is for Department of Agriculture and the other checkpoint is Border Patrol. Neither of these agencies give a rats arse what you have in your vehicle unless it's fruits or illegals.

    Additionally, you have no obligation to declare that you have these guns to either agency as you cross. Dep of Agriculture won't search your vehicles and Border Patrol won't look for anything without arms or legs (rare exceptions).

    Bury your burners in luggage or under other items without making it look like you are hiding anything - you are only doing this to avoid nosy questions that they ask not because it's illegal.

    My own personal experience is that I once brought back a small box with four handguns in it. The box stayed in the front seat somewhat opened for the whole drive. I stopped at both checkpoints and never had any issues.

    I never have any problems coming back from Phoenix either (Dep of Ag checkpoint after you cross the river).

    McClure-Volkmer says you can transport firearms to any other state where they're legal.

    Don't sweat it. There's nothing legal in California that's not legal in Arizona.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, we're getting closer to November 5.
    So far, we've decided on Adair, and that's about it, right?
    What time on the fifth? 10 AM?
    San Diego members, do you want to meet somewhere and carpool, or at least convoy out there?
    Who is going for sure?
    I will be there, anyone else?

    I can't make it to this shoot, but maybe in the future we could try and organize a shoot somewhere out in the desert rather than at a range?

    I would like to head up there Friday eve. Camp out Friday night and then shoot Sat and possibly head back that eve. If not, a Sunday return is fine.

    That would work fine for me, but if that's the case, let's decide, so I can skip out of work early on Friday.

    LennyJ, the "National Guard" range might as well be out in the desert. It is an abandoned range, pretty much a berm with a bunch of crap thrown over into the butts area. No working target stands or anything. You gotta offroad a little to get there, and there are plenty of offroad trails for when you aren't shooting.

    And best of all, it is just minutes south of Adair.

    You could go goof off at the NG "range" and come back to Adair for the camping.

    There is also plenty of camping and fishing at nearby Lake Mitry, and Lake Martinez, and Senator Wash has boating and fishing.

    Any of y'all with decent 4x4 that can ford less than 2 feet of water can have a ton of fun around Yuma, it is like one big off-road trail. My 2WD Cherokee did fine out there, even fording some of the streams.

    I was going to have a work conflict, but I am putting my 2 weeks in tomorrow, so I might be able to make it.

    Hey I can make it, what are the exact dates and how long? Are we spending the whole weekend in AZ? How much money would i need?

    slightly off topic: I finished shooting out of jacumba today (it was storming on the way there but dry at the range) My SKS suddenly stopped shooting semi-auto. I have turned the gas port on and off and have been switching from wooden stock to fiberforce stock within a 6 month period. I havent had this problem in the past and i'm using wolf hp 7.62x39. I oiled it up and checked for dirt, still doesnt work. Does anyone know the solution for this? Thanks

    Kevin,
    I'll probably go out there Friday, and camp overnight. The actual shoot is on Saturday, the 5th. I might stay overnight Saturday, and leave Sunday morning.
    If you want to ride with me, just pitch in some gas money. Also, I'm bringing a cooler with beverages, and some food. Anyone else who wants to bring drinks and food, it would be a good idea. If someone has a barbeque, that'd be great.
    Can we get a final count of who will be there, and when?

    Depends on when everyone else is showing up. If no one is getting there until Saturday, I'll leave early Saturday morning. If I do leave Friday, probably around 3 or 4, if I can get off work early. I'd like to get to Adair while there's still some light.

    I'll most likely leave on Friday afternoon so I can get camp set up before sun down.

    If anyone needs a ride from Tucson, you better holler pretty soon.

    LennyJoe, what time do you think you'll be there? I'll try to get off work and meet you.
    ATTENTION! Anyone who needs a ride from San Diego, or some place between San Diego and Yuma, speak now.

    Do we have a good head count? If it's just you and me then it almost isn't worth the drive. Standing by for words.

    I'm in. Tentative on my German buddy, depending on his schedule.

    Anyone who's on the way from Mesa let me know if you'd like to carpool.

    I can wait for you, as long as LennyJoe has a nice big campfire going so we can find the spot after dark.
    Nobrakes23, you in?
