Just curious, does a CA CCW holder have to wait the 10 or 30 day waiting period, or can you buy a gun while you're still mad? :D

The CCW is meaningless in the bureaucratic abyss of purchase and transfer regulations.

There is no CCW exemption to the waiting periods.

What is the matter with you? That would be logical!

The only plus you get with a CCW permit for purchasing, is that all you need is it and your ID for handgun purchase. No HSC or Proof of Residency when buying. It's like your FastPass to Handguns.

Yup...used it today. Makes the DROS go a lot smoother.

You still wait 10 days to cool off...so you don't shoot somebody. Then, on your second gun, you wait 10 days and cool off again...so you don't shoot somebody with 2 guns. And so on. Nobody wants to get shot with five or six guns.

I love CCW handgun DROS. That little piece of paper makes everyone's life much easier, but you still get to wait the ten days.

Is active military exempt from 10 day or not?

Nope....no exemption to the 10 day, but they get a pass on having a CA Handgun Safety Certificate.

That's what I figured. I knew they were exempt from HSC but didn't know about the waiting period. Thanks.

No prob. Also good info to have is that in certain circumstances, active duty military are able to register "assault weapons" in CA. Doesn't happen all that often, but it is out there.

If I remember correctly on that one they have to show that the gun is needed for their job and a letter from their commanding officer of such. I could be wrong on that one though.
