I did all some searches on this topic and I've learned that the 30 day period applies to new and consignment guns and not personal transfers.

However, I just want to be 100% sure if the 30 days applies to out of state transfers. I've recently found a good deal on a handgun thats out of state. I just want to make sure I can purchase from him as I still have another handgun still in its 10 day jail period. Thanks

Yes it does.

But was your other handgun that's still in the 10 day jail from either: dealer retail, consignment, or out of state? The 10 day wait doesn't stop you if it was also a PPT.

The 30 day rule does not apply to private party, face to face transfers. You can complete as many of these as you can afford every 30 days at your FFL and the gun does not need to be on the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale in California.

If you have a new or used gun sent to your FFL from within or outside the state the 30 day rule applies and it must be on the roster.

Can't you have the out of state gun shipped in and then have the FFL hold it until to 30 days are up then dros it?

Most likely what I'll do. This again, depends on the FFL as well as its a personal service. I can see some people refusing so they're not held liable or something.

The other thing I'm hoping is that the FFL is cool with taking in mag rebuild kits, seeing as this guy is out of state.

I suppose worst case scenario if we strike a deal.. I pay 30-40% of the deal and have him ship me all the rebuild kits to my address first. Then have him ship the gun with no mags to my FFL after my 30 days are up.

FYI -- the sale of consignment guns are in essence PPTs. Since PPTs don't count toward 1 in 30, neither do consignments.

If thats the case, I've read some misinformation.


Thanks for the clarification.
