Bought my first handgun on the twelfth of september and I want to buy a second handgun pretty soon here before this particular handgun goes out of stock. I'm concerned about the one handgun per month law though. My question is: does the one month wait start once you take possession of your gun or does it start once you purchase the handgun and the DROS takes place (which would mean I could buy another handgun on the twelfth).

30 day starts on the day you start your DROS

Yup. It's 30 days part the START of the first DROS.

The state doesn't electronically know the exactly date when you pick-up, they only know the start date.

Store bought is 30 days wait before you can buy another but PPT doesn't count from what I was told from a dealer.

I think you can buy another gun from gun store/FFL, but you just cannot DROS it until the 30 days wait is over. So if it is a really good deal or something you might miss out, just paid for it and DROS it later.

To clarify: it is 30 24-hour periods. I've seen people attempt to buy with 5-7 hours still remaining on the clock and it is a no-go.

Put a deposit on the other gun you want and DROS it when the 30 days are up

You just have to wait 30 days for each one consecutively.

However, even if you're waiting for a DROS from a Dealer; you can buy as many PPT's handguns as you want.

The dealers I deal with will let me buy as many as I want, they will hold them for the 30- 24 hour periods and then start the DROS on the next gun.

If your worried it will be gone, see if you can buy it and have them hold it till it's time to DROS.

True private party transfers are exempt from the 1 in 30, buy as many as you like. a true private party is where you and the seller are both present in the store to do the transfer. I believe guns on consignment from a dealer are also exempt? some one correct me if I'm wrong.

OP, private party transfers are exempt from the 30 day rule.

Example, you bought the gun on the 12th of September and you buy a gun via private party transfer today , that gun is exempt from the 30 day rule.

Except in Los Angeles. They have their own, additional rules. Stop by the Reseda Turners and you will notice no new handguns with short barrels, LA rules. Also PPT are limited to 1 per 30 days. True private party transfers are exempt from the 1 in 30, buy as many as you like.

No, it's 30 24-hr periods. If you buy on the morning of the 30th day but on day 0 bought a gun in the evening, it won't work...

Or to skip all this nonsense, get a C&R + COE and be exempt from the whole mess. Buying 3 new guns in one day is not very good for your wallet... :(

The state wants you to buy one hand gun a month . Do it! and stock up on Ammo
