SEC. 12. Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 26400) is added to
Division 5 of Title 4 of Part 6 of the Penal Code, to read:
CHAPTER 7. CARRYING AN UNLOADED FIREARM THAT IS NOT A HANDGUN
IN AN INCORPORATED CITY OR CITY AND COUNTY
Article 1. Crime of Carrying an Unloaded Firearm that is not a
Handgun in an Incorporated City or City and County
26400. (a) A person is guilty of carrying an unloaded firearm
that is not a handgun in an incorporated city or city and county when
that person carries upon his or her person an unloaded firearm that
is not a handgun outside a vehicle while in the incorporated city or
city and county.
(b) (1) Except as specified in paragraph (2), a violation of this
section is a misdemeanor.

26405. Section 26400 does not apply to, or affect, the carrying
of an unloaded firearm that is not a handgun in any of the following
circumstances:
(c) When the firearm is either
in a locked container or
encased
and it is being transported directly between places where a person is
not prohibited from possessing that firearm and the course of travel
shall include only those deviations between authorized locations as
are reasonably necessary under the circumstances.

16505. For purposes of Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 26400)
of Division 5 of Title 4, a firearm is "encased" when that firearm is
enclosed in a case that is expressly made for the purpose of
containing a firearm and that is completely zipped, snapped, buckled,
tied, or otherwise fastened with no part of that firearm exposed.

I should be safe carrying an unloaded PredatOBR in a backpack while it's in it's roll up bag which has ties at each end? Then to carry a 1911 in the pack it just needs to be unloaded in a locked container right?

I'm thinking about if an earthquake or something hits and I have to leave my vehicle or travel on foot and want to carry these in my BOB.

If the backpack was not designed to contain a firearm, then it needs to be locked.
