Do the same rules apply as with any other vehicle? Anything to watch out for?

Did you READ any of those threads before you posted them?

Thread #1: has no information in it whatsoever, just one post with a question.
Thread #2: I can't find anything relating to OP's question.
Thread #3: Does address it in one backpack related answer.

I gave up looking after that.

I get what you're trying to say..."Use the search function". But, really?

Well that's too bad, but you still apparently got farther than the OP. The topic has been covered in depth many times before. I guarantee there is no question that hasn't already been answered.

Again. I GET that.

But how are you helping by posting a link to a thread that does nothing towards answering the OP's question?

You might have seen that question a million times. But it's a very real possibility that it is someone's FIRST time seeing that particular topic.

EVERY internet forum I have been on, you'll see people saying "Use the search function" because they've seen topic X covered a million times.

And if there's no question that hasn't already been answered, what are we doing here? Maybe we share a common interest and we can help each other out and entertain ourselves a bit at the same time. If you've been around a long time and have a lot of experience, how about paying it forward to the new guy starting out?

Prior to the federal GFSZ thing, I've slung a rifle on my back and cruised down 101. While still perfectly legal, I would not suggest doing it today unless you know the laws inside and out and are ready to be illegally detained for hours by undertrained LEOs. (Not LEO bashing here. The properly trained ones will know it's legal but, the mis trained or under trained ones probalby will have issues with it).

If the OP had a specific question I would answer it. For a general overview, use search. I think it's funny you are implying I'm lazy or impatient when you were not even willing to click through a few links to find some relevant info. Why don't you do that and post what you find there rather than criticize me for pointing him in the right direction?

This forum and some of the original members made this forum what it is by asking questions that had not already been answered. Some of these questions had to do with getting the first OLLs into Ca, designing mag locks and later mag locks which can accept attachable mags. Asking the same old questions over and over gets old and does detract from the real brainstorming that has occured here. If you want a forum that just keeps asking and answering the same old questions over and over, there are plenty of them out there.

I never said that.

As a constructive criticism the search feature on CGN does not always produce good results IMO, but a simple google search of a gun related question including "CA" usually produces a Calguns thread in the top three results that hits the mark.

This one seemed pretty good....

It takes a lot less effort to ignore a thread than to school someone on the use of the search feature, if this sort of thing really offends one's sensibilities.

You can also use google, may work better for you: http://tinyurl.com/4y225lg

Unloaded in a locked container, long gun or hand gun the same.
Under the seat, in a tankbag or saddlebag, bungee-corded to the sissy bar, whatever works.
Don't be too obvious and you will be fine...

Thanks gatesbox and ojisan. That's what I figured but just wanted to be sure.

On the other hand, everyone is a newbie once and everyone who has been here a while understands that the search function built into the forum software is pretty sad.

That's one of the reasons there is an off-Calguns wiki - for example, http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/Transporting#Vehicles_without_trunks. The questions get asked and answered here, and then buried in the volume. A couple of us pick up answers and preserve them.

Very good point,indeed. I see a lot of the same questions everyday here
but maybe this is good.To me it indicates(maybe) there are that many
new people coming into this site and shooting interests in general. Pete
