Default Hiking/Backpacking/Camping with a locked/unloaded handgun?

Hello all,

I'm trying to find out if it is legal to bring a unloaded handgun, locked in a container, with the ammunition separate with you while hiking/camping.

I'm trying to find the legal verbage regarding this.. but everything I'm finding either has to do with:

- Concealed Carry

- Open Carry

- Transporting a firearm specifically in a motor vehicle

If anybody happens to know, or better yet can point me to the California Penal Code, it would be greatly appreciated.


*Update: Hey all, think I got this mostly sorted out. Found some info with relevant California Penal Code links here: https://www.reddit.com/r/CAguns/comm...cked_unloaded/

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Get a hunting license or fishing license (small pole in backpack) if you get a hunting license ammo needs to be lead free and you must read the regs. I have both been approached by Leo and no issues
