So.... I've read this whole thread. I live in NV (so no such restrictions), but am going camping up in Sequoia NP next week. I see that I can UOC (a foreign concept, but whatever). However, what isn't clear to me is where I can carry the loaded magazine(s). In my pocket? Or do they have to be tucked in my belt? I don't have a belt carrier, but I could put them behind my belt. And do I need to (or should I) have an empty mag in the 1911?
I'm not particularly trying to make a statement, I just prefer to have a weapon on hand for the unexpected.
I could ask the rangers when I get there, I guess.
Thanks in advance.
