I've been trolling the online auction sites because there's a void in my gun safe that needs to be filled. I have a C&R, so I'm looking at a wide range of surplus rifles, although my preference would be a 1903A3 or an M1917 because I already have cases of 30-06 for the Garand. I'm trying to standardize around the ammo, rather than having seven different rifles in seven different calibers.

I've noticed lately that more and more stores that list guns on the auction sites add a note that they will not sell in CA because of recent changes in the gun laws. I stay pretty current with the NRA alerts. What did I miss?

Why go anywhere but the source?

California Firearms Licensee Check System (CFLC) (http://caag.state.ca.us/firearms/cflcoverview.php)

And then look for CFLC in threads here.

Don't forget - "our side" agreed to this BS. Yes - the lobbyist for gun makers and retailers, who doesn't play well with NRA (or many others either), really blew it big time on this one. Forget the industry screwing the gun-owner legislatively (which happens - how do YOU like the state's "approved handgun list?") - hard to see how ANYONE's interests were served here.

It's understandable why people from that lobbyist office don't post here but NRA is well-represented. Their position is often indefensible. Remember when they supported last sessions "mail order ammo ban" because it had been amended back to handle ammo "just like wine"? (Which allowed the bill to make it to the GOVERNOR'S DESK - where we defeated it)

You don't see NRA selling you out like that and many here have seen that now with their own eyes. But unfortunately, NRA can't stop those intent on shooting their (our?) own feet (Silviera?) NRA can't go to war with the industry over their bad lobbyist choices. That's because they're actually concerned with EVERYONE's interests. It's easy to screw someone over here to help someone over there - people are getting rich in Sacramento doing it all the time (and often you are the screwee). But NRA often gets blamed for their mistakes. (Thankfully, calgunners know better.)

Thanks for telling it like it is Mike.
I remember how they said they "had to compromise" and take this, the CFLC, because the alternative (which they never gave details about) was much worse. I call BS! They bent over and took it because they like to bend over and take it!
Don't get me started...:mad:
