I have a full sized 9mm Uzi rifle. How do I order mail order ammo for it? Can I go to Nevada and buy it, and bring it back here without filing out paperwork because it's for my rifle?

yes, buying out of state and bring it back to CA is ok and lawful.

to add: It is lawful for pistol or rifle. Makes no difference.

So would they sell 9mm here without documentation if you told them it was for a rifle? I've had them ask me if the .22 I was buying was for pistol or rifle.

If Parker v. California lost, it is time to organize a carpool to motherload.

I would bet they will still want to do the whole thing on rifle ammo too not knowing what the law really is.

If I can prove I have a 9mm RIFLE... should I not be able to order ammo for it online?

That didn't seem to be how the law was written the last time I looked at it.

Not that it really matters, but 12323. As used in this chapter, the following definitions shall
apply:
(a) "Handgun ammunition" means ammunition principally for use in
pistols, revolvers, and other firearms capable of being concealed
upon the person, as defined in subdivision (a) of Section 12001,
notwithstanding that the ammunition may also be used in some rifles.
This was meant to induce FUD - it's very successful at that. It wasn't meant to make any sense from a gun owner/user viewpoint - as you can see, it doesn't.

My gut would tell me the judge will make them rewrite the law at a minimum and/or throw the whole law out because it makes little sense. It says handgun ammo. Are we supposed to bring our long guns into stores or what to prove it's for a long gun? And how can we do that for out of state sales? Seems to me the law is so poorly written that a judge would have to laugh at it.

But wait, we are talking California here, common sense does not apply. I see businesses and gun owners leaving in drove before not to long and all that will be left is LEO's chasing criminals. No wonder retired LEO's move to Idaho, they can see the future too.

See here (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=385533), another option is to get both a C&R FFL 03 (http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/Curio_and_Relic/Licensed_Collectors#Curio_and_Relic_Collectors_Lic ense_.28FFL_03.29) and a COE (http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/Certificate_of_Eligibility) as that exempts you from AB962 and handgun ammo can still be shipped to your house (if you can find a supplier that honors the exemption).

ETA: See this thread (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=378054) for a listing of the suppliers who will and won't respect the exemption.

Moot.

AB 962 has been overturned before this all could be implemented - see the sticky http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=385930
