    I have a travel trailer that I'm going to take for camping in California. My understanding is that when transporting a handgun, all magazines need to be empty and the handgun locked up in a case (or other locking device).

    Am I allowed to have a loaded firearm *inside* my trailer, since it's more of a residence, not really a vehicle?

    Park your trailer and it becomes your residence.

    Loaded firearm inside is okay.

    A man with a gun! has it right; when parked, generally the trailer is your residence and loaded inside is fine.

    Caveat: it depends on where you camp - for example, California State Parks are no-loaded-gun.

    And while transporting, your guns must be unloaded. Removable magazines may have ammunition in them, they need not be empty, but loaded mags must not be in the gun(s).

    :eek:. Those are some strict rules in ***********.

    I guess i know the mindset of the Cal. transplants that give me "concerned" looks when im OCing at a camp ground or on a trail. Some have even tried telling me the State laws as far as carrying a firearm. They even had a Sheriff deputy called down to investigate.
