My Mother's moving back home to California from Missouri in a couple of weeks. She already has a EMF Hartford 1911 built by DGC Custom Gunsmithing that she is bringing me as a gift.
We don't have much time or much money for her to get me one more gun. I'm torn between a Taurus 709 Slim and the FM 90 from Argentina.
What do you think. Which of these would you get or is there something else you would want as a gift from your Mother moving back home from a free state?

CZ Phantom; Ruger LCP; HK P30; HK .45 Tactical (yeah a little pricey) Springfield XDM
(.40 for me) (two tone is cool). Perhaps a Glock Gen 4. On all these weapons or any other weapon she could do a Interfamilial Transfer tomorrow from Missouri. Legally she can Fed Ex a weapon as a gift to you direct to a prearranged FFL close to you (make sure they take direct shipments; some do, some don't) with a letter and copy of her ID that says the weapon is a gift from Mom. The FFL can then DROS the weapon to you; you wait the 10 days and pick it up. If any have normal mags (over 10 rounds) have mom get a friend who can take them apart and then mail them direct to you as Rebuild kits. I am not sure but I think she can transfer 6 weapons a year to you. I may be wrong about the number however.

Of the two choices above I pick the Taurus PT709.

I thought that for Mom to send me a gift from out of state and send it to my local FFL it would have to be on the California Approved list if it was a handgun.

Nope. Intrafamilial transfers are exempt from the roster.


I hear those Remington 1911s are pretty nice,BTW.

Another vote for CZ Phantom. Buds has em for $450.. so they should go pretty cheap. Worst case scenario.. you hate the gun... sell it to me:)

I was also thinking about getting a S&W MP15-22-P. Just reading the California Assault Weapons guide and they have a section titled:

Generic Characteristics Defining Assault Weapons:
12276.1 (a) Notwithstanding Penal Code section 12276, “assault weapon” shall also mean the following:

Pistols
(4) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following:
(A) A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer.
(B) A second handgrip.
(C) A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel that allows the bearer to
fire the weapon without burning his or her hand, except a slide that encloses the barrel.
(D) The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip.
(5) A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.

So based on section "D" I would have to install a bullet button on this 22LR Pistol. Right?

Well even though they can be gotten here in California it would be easier to get some registered in Missouri.

I'll have to think about that. When I go to put them in my name how will the California dealer know that they were registered as pistols?

There would be some record of it I assume or they would be marked as pistol lowers.

Also, while I've done a number of OpLaw transfers, I've never done one through an FFL, but when I did these transfers there was no FFL involved. My dad handed me the gun and all was well.

But these are coming in from out of state.

Its a polymer CZ. Ok, admittedly, we here in CA can't really take advantage of its magazine size... but my main attraction is the cost for getting such a quality firearm. CZ accuracy, polymer durability.
