If you are just moving your firearm from a locked container into your holster, you would NOT be in hviolation of PC 417.ok so this is my third post here. i live in santa rosa, ca which is a city that must have the most schools in it than any other city for the size lol.
I have recently given up automobile as my transportation and now bike or walk everywhere i go (saves a ton on gas and auto insurance). i am thinking and preparing to start UOCing soon, but because of the amount of schools around this area i would have to bike or walk 15 miles just to go 5!
Here's my question; Is it possible for me to just pack my pistol and mag away before i get to the 1000ft point of a school, and then after i pass the schools 1000ft mark to take them out of the locked container straight to the holsters? Or would this be violating the (pc 417) brandishing a firearm even though it wasnt in a threatening mannor?
This does not mean that an ignorant LEO, or an LEO who believes that only LEOs should be allowed to carry a firearm will not give you a hassle about it.
This is one of the reasons you always carry a voice recorder with you when carrying and always have it recording, so you don't have to remember to hit "record" when the officer approaches.
