View Full Version : Private Transfer

04-25-2011, 8:56 PM
I heard something about private transfers, but have not been able to verify it as a fact or just a rumor, because I hear a different answer every time. So I heard that a California FFL dealer can sell certain firearms to Police and Active Duty Military that they are not allowed to sell to civilians(in California). But after that purchase is made, that Police Officer or Active Duty Service Member can turn around and do a private party transfer to a civilian. Is this true?

Partly right.

Police are exempt from the handgun Roster. AD Military are NOT exempt.

If a LEO buys an off-Roster handgun, and decides he/she doesn't like it, then that LEO may do as every other CA citizen may do, sell that handgun.
