Relocating to Charlotte NC

Any help or suggestions regarding moving ammo and handguns across country would be appreciated. leaving Southern California and not sure if driving it cross country is a good idea.

Your biggest problem will be getting free of the Golden state.

It looks like you will be using I-40 all the way unless you are going the scenic route. In which case you are good to go. All gun friendly states all the way over.

Just be careful where you stay over. Do not leave anything in your vehicle overnight.

Unless it has been rescinded and I never heard it was...

McClure-Volkmer Amendments to Federal statutes controlling firearms and ammunition (18 U.S. Code 921 et seq. and 26 U.S. Code 5801 et seq.) were signed into law by the President on May 19, 1986, and in general will become effective on November 15, 1986.

Transport Through Jurisdictions with Restrictive Laws You will now be able to transport
any legally owned and carried gun, in your automobile or other vehicle, through a jurisdiction* with a law that might otherwise prohibit you from doing so, as long as you would not be in violation of the laws of the place you are traveling to. The gun, however, must be unloaded and inaccessible. A separate bill—passed after the McClure-Volkmer bill was cleared—specifies how the term 'Inaccessible" is to be interpreted.

Gumbee: After almost 50 years had enough, can't believe whats happening in LA and SF. CCW here (California)cost almost $900 (incl. training, live scan, ammo etc.) in Charlotte it's $90 + training class, plus its a Stand Your ground state!

One additional word of advice: as you transport, keep guns and ammo in separate, locked containers.

Thanks all for the response. Takes a load off my find that I can take most of it with me. Plus, stocked up on ammo and wouldn't be enough time before I leave to shoot it all up!

I'm planning to move from NJ to SC mid year. I plan on driving down a couple times prior to my move. One trip to bring firearms only. Not one bullet. The second trip for ammo. No firearms. It's a pain but you know the [email protected]% show that would be made if you get pulled over with a proverbial arsenal firearms/ammo combo.

It sure is a shame that honest people have to worry about moving their legally owned property. Good luck in your endeavor and enjoy your new freedom.

It would probably help to have a gun permit with you when you travel.

I'm lucky to be a retired LEO so, no cost.

The GOOD news is - you're leaving all of Commiefornia's [email protected]$$ed gun laws behind.


Just be SURE to leave CA politics behind you as well, and you'll be just fine.

The biggest problem with California ex-pats is that the want to avoid the taxes, regulation, and big government nonsense... so they move, and vote for stuff that turns their new State into a mini CA.... just look at OR, WA, and CO for starters....

Yup! I am a retired California LEO, moved to Texas 11 years ago. California had already moved awsy from me, politically, and socially, so the transition was easy. Everything I like, California hates, guns, NRA, freedom, the Constitution, 2A, free speech, and Trump, just to name a few. In my area people set up on the roadside selling Trump and MAGA stuff, I've seen 1 Bernie sticker and I think someone was screwing with a friend.

Congratulations on getting out from behind the Pink Curtain, you will be able to breathe in the freedom when you cross into Arizona!

Iíd gladly pay $900 for a CCW in the Bay Area, here it will cost you probably 10 times that in campaign contributions to the sheriff in order to be one of the few.

Canít wait to escape this state.

Two things:

1. Give Memphis, TN a wide berth. High crime rates.

2. You are moving to one of the most liberal cities on the east coast.

This so true, not only of Cali but of foreigners who come here. I know Cubans who if you say ANYTHING positive about Cuba they jump on your first amendment right to free speech and try to squelch you :-)

What the hell is wrong with people?
