Trying to do my share of handgun selling. 1916 George Jung produces the first fortune cookies, in Los Angeles. Coca-Cola launches its curvaceous bottle, modelled on the cola nut. William Boeing found his aircraft construction company. John D Rockefeller becomes the first billionaire.

Me thinks some of us are too busy buying rifles!!

Maybe its all the fuckin bullshit classes and junk that makes people not want to buy handguns legally!

Could it be that most of the people that wanted one had eight years of the Klintons threatening to get rid of the evil weapons to motivate them to buy theirs then? Hitlery was national salesperson of the year a couple of times. There may be both market saturation and a lack of interest in buying due to increasing laws and restrictions on legal ownership. Or maybe more firearms owners have voted with their feet and moved out of Kalifornia.

Man, I would like to help, but I don't really need anything right now. I did my buying spree in 1999-2000, so at this point I don't really need anything. I guess I could start looking at 1911's, but I don't really need another .45 ACP. But I guess this is not an issue of need, is it?

Paul, I read that the handgun market in Kalifornistan is saturated, most people who wanted a handgun bought a handgun during klintons rule. I for one would buy a handgun...just not in Kalifornistan!

If you do wait until 2003 to buy a handgun, well, you know.... I hate to do it (not really), but I'm probably gonna keep my FFL guy pretty busy this year.

Crap, I was going to buy a bunch this year cause of the upcoming liscensing bill, but spent all my money on this damned surround sound system. Now I might get a HDTV to go with it. Wife wants to buy a vacation house so that is cutting into things as well. (i.e. would need to be sneak purchases) And there is that damn M1A that keeps taunting me. The other problem is there is little else I want. Maybe a ruger .22/45 or a buckmark and a Ruger Vaquero. Maybe a .357 as well. But I've been realizing that I don't shoot 90% of the guns I have and I probably won't use the new ones very much either. And I need to upgrade this damned computer. Damn these priorities other than guns. What's lotto up to now?

I plan to do just that this year due to the new law in 2003.
Link Posted: 1/21/2002 2:57:45 AM EDT
Now if you were going to twist my arm here, I will admit that I don't own a 1911 or any kind of revolver. Perhaps a Kimber or a Wilson followed by a Taurus .22 revolver so I can shoot those little Colibri (sp) things? Or maybe a snubnose .357 mag? That might be fun to shoot. However, I hate to dip into my .50 BMG fund for another handgun.

I bought two last year and have one waiting for me at the store with my name on it.

Last week put a used glock 22 w/night sights on layaway.Was saving to finally get an HK USP 40,but the glock was a good deal (425) and I already have one and about 20 mags for it.

The Rodney King Riots erupted on April 29, 1992. As you can see from the data shown above, the Riot was most likely the determining factor in producing a whopping 31.8% increase in [i]legally[/i] reported handgun sales from 1991 through 1993. It appears Californians respond reactively to social unrest by arming themselves. Given the fact the population demographics are changing in California at least as rapidly as anywhere else in North America, future social unrest is inevitable. So too are increases in handgun sales. Stay tuned.

Pardon my ignorance (I don't live in CA), I must've missed it - what happens in 2003? Has the Caliban proclaimed that all guns will turn into pumpkins by decree? (They seem to think they can legislate functional electric vehicles, so why not?)

I'll be happy to do my part as soon as I become gainfully employed again. I traded a sweet lil' Govt. Model .380 in on my Bushie AK Shorty, and then I traded my SA milspec for a 92fs that I had to have. I'm too lazy to do a search, but I'm sure Utah has a gain overall each year.

Did my part, bought a 70 series Colt (private party transfer, - only way to get it here as it's not on the CA DOJ [i]approved[/i]list. Also a USP40C. Just saw that HK P7M8s are on the approved list, will have to get one of these soon, anyone have one for sale [;)]

1) .38 S&W K38 2) Ballister Moina .45 3) Star Model B 9mm 4) CZ-52 All in January, and my wife bought me a S&W .44 629 in December. Everyone can afford a CZ-52, $145 including shipping.

Most of the guns that I want are not on the PRK approved list. Last year I was a little strapped for cash, so I did not so any "impulse" buying. I think the economy may play a factor as well. If my stocks had not taken a hit, I might have had a few extra bucks to spend on guns. Other RKBA folks I know were also keeping their cash in their wallet.

will you need to be fingerprinted for every gun or just the license to carry in PRK in 2003?
Link Posted: 1/21/2002 8:36:47 PM EDT
i would but im broke
Link Posted: 1/21/2002 11:22:53 PM EDT
I believe you have to give them a thumbprint to get the license so you can buy handguns. I don't think it applies to long guns. This has nothing to do with CCW.
