Well, it says Section 12025 does not apply to, or affect, any of the
following. Then at the bottom, it has the locked container stuff... But if 12025 deals with CCW, how are you exempt if it says you have t have a locked container "(b) In order for a firearm to be exempted under subdivision (a)" ????

Ca law really is hard to follow!

What it means is that to be exempt doing "a" you must transport doing "b":

(b) In order for a firearm to be exempted under subdivision (a),
while being transported to or from a place, the firearm shall be
unloaded, kept in a locked container, as defined in subdivision (d),
and the course of travel shall include only those deviations between
authorized locations as are reasonably necessary under the
circumstances.

What you really want to find is an exemption in 12027 (those don't require locked cases - although in most cases must be unloaded)

or if you don't like the restrictions in 12026.2a (which seems geared to non-vehicle transport such as walking) use a motor vehicle and claim exemption via 12026.1a.
