I am planning to take my Grandson out for a day of shooting in the desert east of San Diego the day after Thanksgiving. When transporting my Smith & Wesson Handguns, I have the handgun cable lock that came with the gun, and the factory plastic boxes. My question is, do I lock it thru the cylinder of the revolvers, and leave the box unlocked. Or can I just run it thru the lock hole on the outside of the box and leave the gun unlocked inside the box. I have to pass thru 2 Border Patrol check points as well as the 100 mile drive each way. I plan to take between 6 to 10 different revolvers and a couple bottom feeders also with the same type of S&W factory box. I always take a folder with my DROS information and copies of the paperwork on all the firearms, so there will be no problem as to me being the legal registered owner of them if stopped. I just want to make sure that I am carrying them correctly. They will be in the extra cab behind the seats and the ammo will be in a milk crate back in the bed of the truck. If for some reason I get stopped I just want to make sure that any CHP or BP or LEO will be satisfied with the way I am transporting things. Thank you for any replies.
