Question for you CA fellas

I'm very sad to say (especially on this sub forum) but I will be moving to California in hte next few weeks. Now, I want to have at least 1 quality quality handgun that I can take. WIth the stupid 10 round magazine capacity laws in effect, I figure I'll make those bullets as large as possible. 45acp to be specific. I was planning on making a 1911 purchase this year anyways.

I browsed the list of 1911's available and my top pick wasn't on the list, springfield TRP. Does Cali law allow me to buy in gun in free air (CO) and bring it into CA when I drive cross country? Or does the gun have to be on the DOJ list before i even own it?

Thanks. Never thought I'd have to ask

You can import guns into CA that are not on the DOJ list. One way, is to do what you said and buy the gun before you move, then register the firearm when you do (as long as it has a 10 rnd mag and no "evil features" you should be good).

Second, once you are in state, you can purchase guns not on the DOJ list via the single shot exemption and a friendly FFL.

FYI - you can also bring your AR/AKs as long as you install a bullet button (or similar mag lock device) and get yourself some 10 round mags. You can also keep all your high-cap mags, just disassemble them so that they become "parts" instead of an "ammunition feeding device".

Visit www.calguns.net for tons of great info on guns in CA.

To which part are you moving?

I can't speak for CA laws in regards to what firearms you're allowed to have (learning that is depressing enough), but I can tell you that your travel is federally protected under FOPA

FOPA covers interstate transfer while traveling such as your case (moving)

GREAT post on this subject:

So based on my (half hearted) reading, I believe I can bring a gun, so long as transportation rules are all followed. I am going to be buying a MC operator and bringing it with me. Off to ze fun shop!

Make sure that you aren't bringing any short barreled rifles into CA. Throw a bullet button on, disassemble your standard capacity magazines and bring whatever off-roster pistols you want.
