My son in San Diego called me this morning and said that he had gotten a phone call from Sportsman's Guide telling him that a signature is now required on ammo shipments to Kali. They told him this started about a week ago, but didn't tell him if the state is requiring it or just SG. He ordered some 7.62x39 and they called to confirm and to tell him it would be an extra $2.00 for UPS to get his sig. SG had some Brown Bear soft point for 98.00/1000 so I jumped on it and then called him to get some ordered. I got an E-mail saying the order was cancelled because they ran out. HE gets the confirming call even though I ordered before him! He gets 2000 rds. of SP, and I get nuttin'! :mad:

Sportsman's Guide.

They're notorious for enforcing arbitrary policies on Californians. I guarantee you that what happened, was that they saw the proposed law that never made it, and decided they were going to "play it safe" and act as if it were on the books.

Most of the folks on here refuse to support them in any way, shape, or form.

Never had to sign for ammo. I didn't have to for the order that came in on Wed. from J&G sales. SG does take it's rules to the extreme.

Doesn't matter if it is ammo or not (ground or overnight).

Maybe it is a difference between residence and business deliveries.

They wouldn't sell a AR pistol grip as pistol grips are illegal in California, and they wouldn't sell an AR removable sight because it was an M16 part.

They're ****ing clown shoes.

Hmmm, I orderred some ammo from SG on Oct. 17th and it was left at my front door...no signature required - that was a couple of weeks before the original post tho.

I have never had problems orderring from SG - some of the best prices on handgun ammo I have found.

Arnold vetoed that mail order bill. Just CYA by corporate lawyers. Cheaper Than Dirt plays games like this, too. The restrictions and hassles are bad enough without vendors adding to it.

I get those notices from UPS when I order from SPG and Cheaper Than Dirt, too. The driver always just signs it for me and leaves it sitting on the porch, whether I'm home or not.

I can't really blame anyone for wanting a signature for delivery. Federal law mandates that the legal age to purchase long gun ammunition is 18 and handgun ammunition is 21. By requiring an adult signature, this ensures that it is not directly placed in the hands of a minor
