I found this on another site also.....although I do own a few hand guns and carry when I am backpacking, I try NOT to draw attention to myself.....on the other hand, I don't know why anyone would bring a rifle to the springs. To each is own.


I carry a LOADED* handgun EVERYTIME I am hiking/camping in the national forest. I carry it openly and visible (right out in front). I have had lengthy conversations with DFG, sheriff's, and forestry rangers while doing this. I am not shy about having it and I have NEVER been hassled or "taken down" while doing this because it is LEGAL. You DO NOT need a hunting license while doing this or to lie about why you're carrying the handgun either.

In a nutshell:

You can carry a loaded handgun EVERYWHERE so long as it is not a prohibited area or prohibited way to carry the handgun. You can do this because you are not prevented from carrying a handgun/firearm. Only restricted as to the PLACE and METHOD and/or LOADED STATUS when that handgun/firearm is carried.

Prohibited areas are:

School zones
INcorporated areas
Restricted areas
National or State PARKS
Government buildings
Highways and roads
Inside a vehicle
NO GUNS or HUNTING posted areas of private property
Private property in areas which are open to public access (such as common areas of multi-dwelling residential property)

Prohibited methods of carry

ANYTHING which conceals the handgun is prohibited (except locked container to/from car/range/etc**)
ANY other method of carry except in a visible belt holster.

Read the laws and get educated on what is legal and what is not.
