I don't live in CA, but from other threads I've read here, as long as that gun meets the requirements for CA hand guns(I assume a single stack 1911 does easily), you can purchase it. Once you buy it from Buds, they ship to your local FFL(same process for online purchases no matter what state you live in) and you pick it up from your local FFL dealer. FFL dealer will charge you a small fee.

oh, and by small fee he means about $100

:rofl::rofl: true. Buddy up with the shop owner(if it's small enough that you speak with him) and tell him you'll buy your ammo and other supplies there. Maybe they'll cut you a discount with a large enough purchase of accessories. :dunno:

100$? lame....might swing by the glock store instead then

Ask how much and ask around. Dealers pay for their FFL, so they gotta make money from you if you're not buying directly from them, as they are providing you with a service.

A chunk of it is turned over to DOJ as the DROS fee. Think it's $25 or so and the FFLs are limited to charging $35 so they make $10 on the DROS plus their transfer fee.

$35 is for PPT's and is just $25 DROS + $10 profit

the $100 transfer is usually ON TOP of DROS fees for internet purchases.

This.

Also, the only 9mm RIA that you can have in CA is the AP9 or the MAPP1. If you want a 9mm 1911 from Rock island your only bet is to get a .38 super 1911 (which, ahem, we just so happen to have in stock) and then get a barrel from RIA in 9mm.

as much as I hate to suggest this, cant you get the Kimber 1911 Team USA match pistol in 1911 in CA?

You know how I know your a Kimber fanboi?

By "roster", he means the roster of handguns that CA-DOJ permits to be brought into the state. If it's not on their by name, it's out. Even dumb shit like blued vs. stainless will disallow a pistol. The blued model may be on there but the stainless isn't so even though they're the SAME pistol with that cosmetic difference, one is okay and other is evil.

I am painfully familiar with the handgun roster.

And it's not about what can be brought into the state, it's about what can be sold new at a dealer.

I could move home to laguna beach next week and bring 2 of everything off the roster and sell them to people in ca legally.

Ohhh, and you were doing so good up untill then. It's about anything sold out of dealer stock. It doesn't matter new or used. The only stuff exempt are:
C&R handguns
Single Action Revolvers
Single Shots
Olympic pistols
Consignment guns.

Bump....new question

glock19uy7.jpg


I got a like new glock 19 with 4-10 round magazines. It looks and shoots like its brand new. Its also very accurate and super reliable. This comes with everything a new glock does and more. I'll even throw in 100 rounds of winchester 9mm + 30 rounds of hollow points.

475$ a good deal for all this?

What can i expect in terms of fees?
I've heard 25$ for my Handgun cert ...what else?

$35 bucks for the PPT, it's illegal to charge more for it. Decent price if it's LNIB.

Damn California, wtf.

Here in Wisconsin, when I last sold a firearm private party(I was 19, so about 8 years ago), all I was told to do(by a firearms dealer) was to write down the drivers license/ID info(name, address, dob) of purchaser and keep those records for like 4 years.
