If there is no mag in the gun I'm fine right? Has to be a LoCap mag?

It does have to be a firearm that can be imported to California.  So not an "assault weapon," or other that might be not Ca legal. Also you should consider the times you might want to move it from the trunk or the trunk open, etc., a container could be necessary or just good to have.

Nothing wrong with a rifle if you want to bring one.  Get a cheap compliant muzzle device, a compliant grip (there are much better options than finned grips, like the Sparrow Dynamics grip), and a stock stop from Strike Industries (cheap), unless you already have a fixed stock, and you're GTG.

I have one of those Israeli devices that allow you attach a mag to the mag well without actually inserting the mag into the mag well.  Legal in CA, with case law to back that up.

Container doesn't need to be lockable or locked if it is designed to contain a firearm.  

If you're bringing a pistol, I'd keep it in a locked container, unloaded, in the passenger compartment.  Might as well make it as accessible as possible.

And yeah, you can't legally bring in mags with greater than 10-round capacity.

What about a pistol that isn’t on the roster? Like a Sig 365xl?
Link Posted: 5/23/2022 10:29:44 PM EDT
[Last Edit: Trollslayer] [#8]
The roster only limits what Californians can buy.

Possession within the State is limited by the "assault weapon" and "high capacity" magazine laws.

Is the exemption for rostered assault weapons for those coming into California for a shooting competition gone?

There is no AW roster.

The exemption has nothing to do with registered AWs.

AFAIK, it still exists.  I don't believe it applies to the mags, though.
