    I want to take my Taurus PT-1911 to CA with me for a week.

    It is not on the DOJ list. Can I take it with me?

    I understand that it can't be loaded, and it needs to be in a locked container. (trunk or case)

    Anyone know specifics?

    I tried searching calguns.net, and I didn't really figure it out.

    You can have any firearm in state for 6 weeks if your brining it in with the intention of shooting competition. Print up a match flyer or something and your good to go. If your in So Cal there is a match every sat, sun, tue, and wed

    Interesting method.

    Do I have to go that route because it's not on the approved list?

    After the six weeks, how long does it have to be out of state before you can take it back for another 6 weeks? :rofl:

    The law is pretty poorly written. It does not specify.

    I have heard that some people with non registered AW's will get a dual residency in some other state where they have relatives or maybe just Vegas. Then have said relitive send them a fast food reciept or something every 6 weeks. The receipt is to show that you were out of state sometime within that 6 week window. Then they keep the receipt and the verbage for the law with said firearm.

    Of the people doing this I have never heard of anyone getting popped. You have to be smart. When driving with said firearm don't break any driving laws, don't do stupid shit. Don't put yourself in a position where you have to explain yourself.

    I guess this covers it.
