    Well i plan in doin lots of gold panning when i get back to CA (movin back to long beach, im from anaheim) and id like to know if it will be legal for me to OC a revolver or glock up in san gabriel canyon and the high sierras?

    also, are any of you people national guardsmen/women? because im going to enlist in either CA or UT, but will end up transferring to KY later on (fiancee in KY) but i heard that CA-NG does NOT deploy their national guard, is that true?

    Don't deploy? AAAAHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaa.....


    .....HHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAAAAaaaaaaaaa...ha!


    Yes, we deploy, and often.


    Carry in a National Forest is legal. Carry while hiking, panning, or sitting around a campfire is also legal.

    Carry in a National or State Park is not legal (unless you possess LTC).

    Yes you deploy it's like you are first to go and last know you can even carry your own personal weapon loaded while deployed.

    I gold pan as well and to my knowledge you can open carry loaded as long as you are in a area you can legally discharge it. It would stink to be bent down next to the creek and have a bear come up behind you.

    Buddy of mine has been deployed with the CA NG for a year now. They were originally told they would be deployed 6-12 months. Now they're being told they might extend it to 18-24 months.

    Yes, when I was in the service and any time we deployed if we wanted we could take our own personal pistol as long as we provided our own shells,and carried our issued weapon. Talk to your command about it,at least a Captain. Maybe things have changed in ten yrs but I dont think it has changed much. When the vest was running short just after the war started many folks ordered there own from private company's as well.

    ill have to ask around about it

    back when my dad was in (vietnam) he said that you were allowed to take your own shotguns, and they would cut off the barrel, and then cut off the butt (sawed off style) then they would attach a sling to it for you, and give you all the shells you wanted! the vietnamese believed that they would go to hell if they got shot with it, from what ive heard

    NO!

    Possession of personally owned weapons is a violation of USCENTCOM General Order #1e.

    General Order 1, Part 5, Prohibited Activities.

    e.Purchase, possessing, using, or selling privately owned firearms, ammunition, explosives, or the introduction of these items into theUnited States Central Commandarea of operation.
