Why is it on sites like Guns America, many sellers will not sell to Kalifornia residents. What did I miss on this issue. Anti-gun laws move so fast in that state, sometimes it's hard to keep up.

You have probably answered your own question. They don't want to take the chance that something they do is going to bite them in the ass. Besides, there are plenty of other states to sell to.

CA residents can only purchase handguns on Der Komissar's list of approved handguns, which can be found on the CA Atty. General's website. Only pistols that have passed the literacy test... er... safety test will be on the approved list, and only after the manufacturer pays a yearly bribe.

In order to purchase a new handgun in the DPRK it must be on the "Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale"... Effective January 1, 2001, no handgun may be manufactured within California, imported into California for sale, lent, given, kept for sale, or offered/exposed for sale unless that handgun model has passed firing, safety, and drop tests and is certified for sale in California by the Department of Justice. Private party transfers, curio/relic handguns, certain single-action revolvers, and pawn/consignment returns are exempt from this requirement. This query will provide handgun models that are currently certified for sale in California. There are currently 816 models in the database. To find listed handguns, select a manufacturer [or all] from the drop-down menu and then click on FIND. The sellers on Guns America and Gunbroker just don't want to even deal with the CA BS (and I can't say I blame them). You can see what the "little people" are limited to here: [url]http://justice.doj.ca.gov/safeguns/safeguns_new.taf[/url] In case you're curious: The "Dangerous Weapons Control Law" which all CA gun onwners suffer under (all 140+ pages of it) is here: [url]http://caag.state.ca.us/firearms/dwcl/dwc.htm[/url]

Sorry, as of 01.01.2003, only packages marked "adult novelty," properly address to underage, trans-gendered individuals on drugs who've had at least 4 abortions (there are many available...check the online Yellow Pages), are allowed to enter the PRK. Likewise, the only outgoing mail allowed is U.S.P.S. money orders and cash addressed to Mexican addresses (note: proof of illegal alien status required at time of posting). cynic

That's an affirmative. The Calif. legislature is doing its darndest to put any and all gun stores out of business. B&B Guns of N. Hollywood, who lent guns to the LAPD during the N. Hollywood shootout with two bank robbers have gone out of business.

B&B declared bankruptcy a couple years ago

Thanks guys, that clears it up quite well.

Individuals can still import to CA handguns that are not on the DoJ's list of approved makes and models if they happen to be on the federal C&R list. The other exception is for people moving here. You can import anything that doesn't qualify as a CA "assault weapon", machine gun, or destructive device.

And within 30 (?) days you have to submit make, model, caliber, and serial number to the AG an pay for each gun ($18). I had to do this a couple years ago when I was forced under the threat of federal jail time to move back into California. Pistols bought here and re-imported weren't registered.

A question regarding that registration business. Are only pistols imported by someone moving into the state registered? Or, was there a de facto registration of pistols bought within CA, by some means such as a dealer report or similar? That is, if someone lived in CA, and had a pistol he/she bought in, say, 1992 (pulling a year out of the air; if there was some deadline in there, move the example date to before the deadline) would that pistol be registered?
