    im thinking about buying my first handgun and i was just curious as to the laws involved. I know i have to go through a background check and waiting period and i know i need a permit to carry it concealed but do i need anything special if i just want to carry it in a locked box to and from the range?

    short list:

    must be 21 for purchase from a dealer
    not a felon or drug addict (they don't check)
    no domestic violence convictions
    not an illegal alien or felon from justice

    gotta pass a short background check and some states have waiting period. Some states also require registration of said gun.

    I am from one of the worst states to own a gun in (CA) and all you have to do there to transport a handgun is have it in a locked container with the ammo in a separate container away from the guns.
