Gun ownership q re California

I may be having to move to CA in the next year and wonder how it will affect my gun ownership.

Do you think I should sell my 9mms with 15 rounds mags and buy a .357 revolver with 8 rnd capacity? Just wondering how they view semi-autos in the state.

What about my 870 with a folding stock?

Hi cap mags OK for my 10/22?

Will I have to register my handguns when I move in?

I will be in San Bernardino county, around the Colton area.... what are the chances of getting a permit in that area?

Sell all of your guns before you move.
Start collecting coins or stamps, as these are Kommifornia approved!
I call dibbbs on the high cap mags!

Colton and Fontana are notorious gang cities, just so you know. There are good areas but they are limited and expensive. Sheriff Penrod is generally pretty good about issueing CCW, but I don't know what cause you could put on the paperwork. Try, but expect to be shot down, it is CA you know.

No, you do not have to get rid of your guns, just the standard capacity mags, even for the 10/22. If however, any of your pistols have a threaded barrel, or, have capacity to accept magazines any where other than the pistol grip, then it would be considered an AW by feature in CA.


In fact, I would suggest picking up a few 1911 frames and some Keltec P32's and P3AT's before you get there. They go for a premium in
CA because of the safe list. I've seen the Keltcs go for $400 and up.

If you have rifles that meet the AW criteria for CA, you may be able to use them in a limited fashion is they are not specifically named on the ban list. Your shotgun is OK with the folding stock, as long as it doesn't accept magazines.

Go to www.calguns.net for more info. Also here, see what guns you would want before moving to CA and see if they are on the "safe list" or not. http://certguns.doj.ca.gov/

If you are a LEO, then there are way too many exemptions to mention.

Just buy 10 round mags for them.

Nope, you will need to buy 10 rounders.

Yes, but not long guns. You will also need to pay a small fee for the handguns (IIRC $15).

I believe San Bernardino County is one of the more gun friendly counties and that ccw permits are issued without too much trouble, but I have never lived in that area of the state, someone more local should know.

Are there any particular stipulations as for pistols needing to be on the "safe list" to bring them in if you own them, or is that purely for what can be bought and sold? Somehow I doubt my Astra a-75 is on the list. It's not hi cap (only 7 rounds in the mag) but it's comparatively obscure.

You can bring in anything you have if you become a resident, but going there on vacation won't cut it . The handguns should be registered within 60-90 days IIRC at $19 a pop. That is, unless you sell them before that time. As all firearms transactions must be thru an 01 FFL, it's the same thing as registering them.

You might want to look into what pistols are not on the California approved list. You CAN legally bring them with you and you can sell them. If you make some wise purchases, you can sell them for a nice profit (or not) and make a few new friends here!

Read the magazine ban law very carefully before you ditch your high-caps.

http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/dwcl/12020.php
Particularly this part.

23) The importation of a large-capacity magazine by a person who lawfully possessed the large-capacity magazine in the state prior to January 1, 2000, lawfully took it out of the state, and is returning to the state with the large-capacity magazine previously lawfully possessed in the state.

Although its never been tested in court, most people read that to suggest any mag you possessed in the state prior to 2000 could be brought back in.

Also, make sure you go ahead and get any handgun you really want that's not on the list before you move.

to be perfectly honest the only crime as far as high caps go is the actual crossing of the boarder with them. once they are there the burden of proof is on the one trying to perscecute you. to date no one has been convicted of having a high cap magazine in ca.
