Do you have a CA permit? I have CA and non-res AZ, so when I go to Las Vegas and back, I just keep it concealed on me the whole time. If I didn't have CA, I would pull over prior to the CA state line, get my gun safe out of the the trunk, bring it into my car, and proceed within the confines of my car. Keep it down low and no one will see. Is that what you mean?

Thatís exactly what I mean. And I figured as such.. I do not have a CA permit, as Iíve moved counties before the two year wait for my appointment has come up. Iíll try again next time.

Well, before I had a CA permit we would pull over at the Pilot at exit #9, Or Primm, or Flying J in Ehrenburg etc... and arm/disarm as needed. In Oregon I switch to open carry or toss it in the saddlebag since I don't have an OR permit.

I keep my gun unloaded in a locked case inside a backpack. I leave the backpack on my passenger seat. I will pull over when I cross the border and put everything on.

Next Friday, as soon as I cross the border into NV, I will take the gun out of the locked container, load it and stick it in the aux glove box next to me. When I come back to CA...………….I'm not.

When traveling from CA to AZ/NV...
1. While in CA, unloaded handgun in locked container.
2. After crossing the state line, stop at first rest stop or off-ramp.
3. Discreetly, take handgun out of locked container and load it.
4. Holster handgun.

When traveling from AZ/NV to CA...
1. Before crossing the state line, stop at last off-ramp.
2. Discreetly, unload handgun and put it in a locked container.
3. Drive into CA.

My question is more pertaining to part 3 and part 2 in the next section. I donít imagine I can do this while standing at my trunk as the firearm will momentarily be not concealed. Does this have to be done while seated in my vehicle? Rest stop bathroom?

What is I am carrying and need to go somewhere that I cannot carry? I presume I would disarm in my car, place in a locked container and move the locked container to the trunk. Is this correct?

You really are overthinking this. Pull off at Whiskey Pete's and drive over to the corner of the parking lot and disarm. Prior to having my California CCW I did just that and nobody saw or cared. It really isn't as big a deal as you are making it!

No need to move anything to the trunk. Once it is in the locked container, you are done.

1. Unloaded in a locked container.

2. Put it in a backpack so itís discreet.

3. Put the backpack in armís reach so you donít have to get out of the car.

4. Pull over somewhere and handle your business.

5. Donít overthink it.

Yep. AZ and NV are super easy to get.

Just went to Tahoe, and it's nice to just walk across the state line and not have to do anything. I did pull up my shirt once in NV and open carry for about 10 seconds because I "could"--it's very liberating. My son thought I was stupid.

I always did my loading/unloading while sitting in my vehicle.
Afterwards, I would holster standing next to my vehicle.

Standing in the open, in a public area, while chambering a firearm can alarm bystanders that see/hear it.
Which is why you should be discrete while you load/unload your firearm.

AZ and NV allows open carry of firearms.
AZ and NV allows a loaded handgun to be anywhere in a vehicle.

That's what I did too.

Used the parking lot of one of the casino's at Primm NV to do all my loading once I got into NV and all my unloading before I drove into CA.

I spent most of last year self moving to my retirement home. The quickest route from the Antelope Valley was up to Bishop, then over the hill into Nevada. Since the RAV4 was loaded pretty much all the time, coming and going, I put the pistol and magazine in their locked rugs and hidden in the very back under a whole bunch of stuff.

At the border, there is a large pullout on both sides of the highway. Very little traffic, sometimes ten or fifteen minutes before somebody drove past. I just pulled over, got out or replaced the firearm and magazine, got back in the car and went on my way.

Never an issue.
