Default Moving to VC on Military Orders

Hey folks, so glad CALGUNS exists. I've been reading through and find the posts very helpful. Good bunch of knowledgeable and friendly folks on here.

So, I'm moving to VC on military orders to Point Mugu and need a few things clarrified:

What I know so far (or think I know) is that:

I can bring my handguns with me as long as the magazines with greater than 10 round capacity are disassembled and remain disassembled until I either move out or get them blocked. Is there more I need to know on this?

As Active Duty Military, I am exempt from filing a New Resident Handgun Ownership Report. As long as I do not leave active duty (retire) in the state, this remains the case, yes?

When transporting the weapons during my move or otherwise, I am allowed to have the magazines loaded as long as they are not inserted into the weapons and there are no rounds in the chambers. The guns need to be in a locked container. Do they need to be in the trunk? Again, finer points would be appreciated.

New question: If I am at my home of record, or my state of residency (the state in which I am registered to vote...which is different than my HOR), while on leave in conjunction with orders, can I purchase a handgun or handguns and transport them into the state with my under the same exemption as mentioned above? I have the feeling this one is going to be dicey.

Thanks in advanced for your helpful responses!
