this is only my 2nd time visiting California - first time was 4.5 years ago and i will try to avoid it but i don't think i have a 'choice' on this one this time around. i guess i'll have to adjust as much as i can and try to have a good time with in laws.

alot of great suggestions from everyone.

Can you ship a firearm to yourself at your inlaws?
If not CA how about other states?

Cane... I have two. One a nice solid handmade wood one that I can really put some inertia behind it. I train to use it like a baton or staff. I also have an airline friendly metal fold up cane that has a rubber band running down the center of it. I can carry it folded and drop it like a gravity knife and it snaps into one piece. Its light but surprisingly sturdy. I can put a hurt on my heavy bag quick. Of course it helps that I look the profile old and slow and to be honest my plantar faciaities is why i got the canes.

I’m in California right now. I brought a cane, and a good sturdy knife. When I drive here, I bring a gun, because I have some control over my situation, and because I’m spending some time in the free states on the way to and from. But when I fly to California, I don’t bother with a gun. It’s too much trouble, and I have no faith in airline/airport employees at that end. If I were flying inside of Texas, or from Texas to say Arizona, I’d fly with a firearm .... just not to California. Unfortunately, this trip required flying because we’re traveling with two toddlers, who’d never make it to California alive, in a car.

Enjoy your trip TAM. Don't forget to come back home to Texas!

Wasp Spray DOES NOT WORK. Go to youtube, search wasp spray for slef-defense.
In TX, you could be charged with an illegal chemical dispensing device.

Illinois man, 81, uses antique walking stick to beat thieves

Not bad. He whacked one guy in the head, and when they fled he beat out their car windows!
