Should not have a problem, when traveling with a firearm it must be locked in a case and no markings that there is a firearm in there. Go to baggage check in and and go directly to the front of line and let them know you have a firearm to declare. As far as coming back I would call lax and ask to speak to someone and let them know your concerns. I believe u should not have any problems. Because when u land and get your bags there cannot not be anything on your bags letting anyone there's anything in your bag so u will go gto baggage claim get your bag and grab a taxi or have ur wife pick u up....

Hate to burst your bubble but Texas is not like the Wild, Wild West of old. They don't even allow open carry there. How screwed up is that? You'd think they'd be the last state to ban that.

Contact the CA Dept of Justice. They are the authority on incoming and outgoing firearms in CA for both private party and FFL transfers.

The 2 main restrictions in Texas are no open carry of handguns and no concealed carry without a chl. You don't need a license to carry loaded in your vehicle and there are no restrictions on long guns.

Oh, you can't legally carry past a no weapons sign (as defined by Texas state law. Something about 30.06)

If you have a chl, you can't legally carry past a properly posted 30.06 sign on private property. Fortunately, those are pretty rare. The only one I can recall seeing offhand was at a mental health facility. The other sign that applies to CHLs is a 51% sign, in other words, a bar.
