I do not expect to carry concealed because I am not a resident and have no way to obtain a permit. I'm not intending to shoot or hunt anything. My only intention is to carry lawfully. I am aware of how to transport a firearm lawfully in California unloaded in a secure container other than the glovebox or center console. I do not intend to go near any occupied buildings or within 1000 feet of a school. This is strictly backcountry travel. I don't understand PC 26350. I think it means I cannot open-carry a loaded or unloaded firearm in National Parks. Am I right in understanding that I can lawfully transport an unloaded firearm (handgun) in a secure (locked) container in my backpack through National Parks (Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia etc.), without going near any occupied buildings or school zones? Once I get to my wilderness campsite (not a campground), it would seem the state codes allow me to carry loaded and concealed just as if I were at my own house. I'm referring to CA Penal Code Sections 26055, 26383, and 25605. I know there is a relevant thread over on Calguns about this, but it's a bit overwhelming with 800 posts so far, and running almost 12 years now. I have read the updated first post and the tail end, but it's still confusing and I can't help but think that's the intention (of California). I believe it would be lawful for me to put my unloaded handgun and a separate loaded clip (yes, it's a clip not a magazine) in a zippered bag, lock the zippers tightly and carry that in my backpack. When I get to my temporary wilderness campsite I can lawfully remove the handgun, load it, and keep it concealed on my person as long as I am in the campsite. Am I mistaken about any of this?
