Is the Czech CZ 70 .32 ACP Pistol Legal in CA. They look really cool and I am itchen' to get one. I found one online. If anyone knows let me know. CA is getting ridiculous with it's gun laws. Hopefully not to the point of outlawing this fine handgun.

The List (http://certguns.doj.ca.gov/)

Sorry, but according to CA, that gun kills babies if you even look at it funny. It is not on the approved CA handgun list, so you will either need to find one already in the state for sale and do a PPT on it, or it can be legally imported for and sold to LEO.

That is a bummer. How about a CZ 52? It is not on the list but it is a C&R. Do C&R's get exempt from the list but still have to only be 10rds. or under magazine?

Well, by clicking the link given above and reading the very first (and only) paragraph on the page, I'd say C&R is exempt. ;)

Effective January 1, 2001, no handgun may be manufactured within California, imported into California for sale, lent, given, kept for sale, or offered/exposed for sale unless that handgun model has passed firing, safety, and drop tests and is certified for sale in California by the Department of Justice. Private party transfers, curio/relic handguns, certain single-action revolvers, and pawn/consignment returns are exempt from this requirement.
