If I had this safe in my glove box, or center compartment and it was locked, would it be a legal way to carry loaded, or would I have to have it unloaded with the magazine some place else.

Thanks for the help

Except for limited exceptions, off of the highway in unincorporated county areas where shooting is not otherwise prohibited, all guns must be transported unloaded unless you have a concealed carry permit.

Since the clause wasn't stated... If not in CA, and in a free state (like AZ, AK, VT, Etc.), then you could... Sorry, couldn't resist. :p

Seriously...

To add to this good question, if one had a property which had a gate that locked, could one carry in their vehicle openly or CCW while driving or riding in that vehicle on that enclosed and secured property?

Private property not open to the public would be good to go.

It's just plain ridiculous that we have to bend over backwards to come up with these cockamamy conditions to be able to carry a gun in this state.

Every state is different and California is not the worst state by far.

1. Yes if UNloaded

2. No if LOADED

3. Permanently attaching a box may turn it into the nebulous and ILLEGAL "....utility....compartment."

using a locked cable seems more safe from a legal / cop viewpoint.

(yeah - its stupid)

Bolting something under the seat seems very difficult without removing the seat, and how would you get to it when needed? Shackling it around the seat post with a cable, however, both keeps it out of nebulous "utility compartment" territory and lets you pull it out for access.

ProTip: painted steel tends to slip around on carpet. Buy some stick-on velcro squares from WalMart to give it some grip.
