So I accepted a job offer I could not turn down. Moving from VA to CA. Company is paying to pack and ship all stuff and cars. 60 days corporate housing and storage too while we find a place. I know I am moving to a non-free state (and slightly heavier taxed than VA). Long term though financially this is a better move.

So I will be working in San Jose but we plan on getting a place in Tracy, CA since my family is there. Will take the ACE from there to SJ and back. So you guys will be my new home town forum for a few years.

I grew up in Fullerton/Santa Ana in SoCal. Left in 1992 when I joined Army. This is first time moving back.

Yeah, the lesser humidity will be nice if nothing else.

I plan on calling CA DoJ today but from hat I heard my Sig X-5 and my wife's Walther Q5 should be good to go to bring into state since we are transplants right?

As you've found out from the DOJ, you being a transplant can bring in pistols that are no longer sold here but are ok for people moving here to bring.

People will pay top dollar for used guns and premium + for one that's new! Something to think about if you want to make a quick buck.

Is the amount of cash really worth it? I need to be juggling finding a new house, buying it, then once my household stuff and cars show up get them to new house etc etc. Not sure I want to play mini-FFL.

Unless you have guaranteed buyers, it seems risky. Then there's that straw purchase thing. Note also that you have to report them on "import" (although I suppose you might sell before the time frame expires?). And the sales go through FFLs and get DROSd. Which suggests at least the possibility of seeing some interest of being in the business without being licensed. I don't know what triggers that kind of trouble.

Guaranteed buyers,...???

I'm certain I read on here that bringing them in with the intent to sell ("guaranteed buyers") is illegal. That is "importing" and that is against the law.

yea no threaded barrels, no high caps for handguns.
Don't bother with any assault pistol type stuff (magwell outside the pistol grip) Surprisingly a mac10 would be legal as long as there's no threaded barrel.
AR longarms are a whole nother headache. Id go featureless for everything (add a kydex grip wrap) and take off any flash hiders and pin/block any folding or collapsible stocks.

No, it's not.

Before and after the move, you are gonna be busier than a one legged man in an ass-kicking contest for 6 months, minimum. Put your guns in your safe for a while. You'll have lots of other shit that needs doing.

When you are ready, you will have no trouble finding USPSA or IDPA matches to attend.

Luckily new company is paying for packing/shipment of household and cars. 2 months of corporate housing, 2 months of storage for stuff once it arrives. So other than the purge we are doing now we just need to sell our place (Not going to be hard) and buy a new place which is nice. New company even threw in $7500 to cover moving incidentals and help with closing.

Having said all that yeah I agree, gonna be awhile before we are settled and moved in etc.

Have any AOWs? Those are good to go (shockwaves, super shorties, etc).
If you really want to cash in,
buy a bunch of frames (sti 2011s) and p320 trigger groups. Probably cheapest way.
And gen 5 glocks.
