We are getting ready to travel to Ensenada Baja from Potero, CA and need a place to check weapon before crossing border. When we went to Rocky Point there was a store that would check our weapon for a fee and return it to us when we were back in The USA.

If anyone know of a place near Potero that will check our weapon. Thanks

Assuming you mean Potrero, I'd look for a local gun store. You may have to go into San Diego for that.

Good luck, SO glad you know not to take them across the border with you.

El Cajon is going to be the closest place to Potrero that has a gun store. You might check with El Cajon police dept, or San Diego Sheriff office in Santee (next door to El Cajon).

Good to leave guns and ammunition in the US. I had a friend who brought his pistol with him to Mexico and got away with it - but what a chance to take. I've never been frisked and only rarely have had my possessions searched.

About 20 years ago one US citizen was at a gun show in Tucson. He bought a gun and planned to leave it with a friend in Tucson before heading to Mexico. He crossed the border and the gun was found. He was sent to the HMO prison. Fellow was sick.
I think he had diabetes. Someone in California contacted Good Sam.
They had a connection to a politician and somehow he was released. About the only time Good Sam was of any use. This whole story was reported in this forum. Moral of the story is " Don't take your guns to Town, son".

Thanks to Tally ho and tracker for your helpful info. Looks like a trip to discount gun mart in San Diego will solve problem.
