It would look good with my other Chow's, but it isn't coming back home to California.

F. Bob Chow.

Great shooter, great smith, had his shop in S.F. on Mission - now High Bridge Arms.

I find it ironic and a little sad that the Gunbroker seller advertises the gun as customized by Bob Chow at his shop in San Francisco, then says "no sales to California".

So when you leave California there is no return, if you are a customized Colt .45.

I have a BOB CHOW Custom Commercial Colt. I notice that Chow guns can be very different from one another. Mine is more like a carry model, This one seems like a bullseye pistol.

I had F. Bob Chow work his magic on a Ballester-Molina .45 that I purchased from K-Mart right after I got out of the Army in 1972. It is the prize of my collection.

He built to the customer's specification, and to intended use.

He also worked on wheelguns as well.

A LEO can bring it back home, can't he? Actually, NO, no sales to California. I guess even a LEO is out of luck.

If the seller would concede his terms.

Some of these GB anti-California sellers define the term "Jerk-off."

It looks like a hardball gun for bullseye EIC matches. About the only thing you could change and still be legal for EIC is the sights. You could also have checkering or stippling on the frontstrap IIRC.

If I was in the market for a hardball gun, a newly built one from Clark would be about the same price, but to find a Bob Chow gun today is rare.

I doubt that the gun is currently ok the Roster, so even if the seller wanted to sell to CA he couldn't.

(Obviously there are some narrow exceptions)

http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/ap3572001/Picture027.jpgLEO can buy any pistol form out of state. At least as far as I know. BUT. Many sellers simply won't to sell to Ca no matter what. This is one is mine. Looks to me like a carry gun?
