    So I convinced a buddy of mine through example to go down town open carry. We were looking for a new place to live since our lease is going to be up and found a little reality joint with some good deals.

    This was his first OC experience and boy I tell you never had I seen a more nervous looking friend/realitors. It must have been their first OC experience too! Haha.

    After a very uncomfortable minute one of them finally inquired about our "packing". I didn't think about it then, but I should have referred him here to this site. The rental guy seemed pretty comfortable with the fact that we were armed after I broke the ice telling him it was legal and that you just couldn't have it loaded.

    Long story short, I broke my friends OC cherry! :what:

    Were you in an incorporated area of the County? if you were, you could have carried loaded provided the County had no enacted a shootin gban where you were.

    Go our maps and click on CA and read the summary - then read thru the CA forums - CA has a bifurcated loading restriction based upon where you are in CA. Obviously you are wise to carry with magazine on belt if you don't know exactly where you are

    Mike meant to ask if you were in an unincorporated part of the state. Carrying loaded in an incorporated part of the state (like in a city) is a no-no. Carrying loaded outside all city limits usually means you are in unincorporated land, and therefore you can carry loaded legally minus all the usual restrictions.

    Based on the wikipedia page for California City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_city) you can see it is incorporated, so you cannot legally carry loaded there.

    Fixed that for you.

    If you are in an "incorporated city" that means you cannot open carry loaded.

    "Incorporated City" is basically within the city limits of the following 480 cities in California.

    California City is Incorporated, so no loaded open carry.

    Outside of the city limits, i.e. UNINCORPORATED area, is fine for loaded open carry, as long as there are no county or local ordinances that make discharge of a firearm illegal.

    In Kern County, there are no county ordinances against discharge, with the exception of within County Parks. So pretty much anywhere outside of city limits (except county parks), you can open carry loaded.

    These are the incorporated Cities in California:

    Also keep in mind that CalCity is MUCH larger then it looks. Its very easy to think you're in an unincorporated area out there when you aren't.

    According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 203.6square miles (527.4kmĀ²). Although one of California's smaller cities in terms of population, California City is the third largest city in California by land area (34th in the United States, and 21st when consolidated city-counties are excluded).

    Joker, you might want to update your location in your forum profile if you've moved away from NLV.

    Also, keep in mind that public K-12 schools are EVERYWHERE, and especially in urban areas. You cannot carry a firearm loaded or unloaded within 1000feet of K-12 school grounds without it being locked up.

    See my recent experience in California at this thread for some hints on how to keep yourself out of trouble with a GPS.
