I want to purchase a sig platinum 229. but, i was informed the sig company thinks they are too expensive to send many of them so i cant find one and was informed only law enforcement can get them. is there absolutely any way to get one?

I believe they're not on the CA approved roster. I tried to get one for my wife a few years back and that was the hold up. If they're not on the CA approved roster... you can NOT purchase one through regular channels nor do an FFL transfer.

So there are two ways i know of to get it... find a place that can do a single shot exemption transfer (good luck)...

Or if you know a LEO, they can buy it and sell it to you.

Bottom line... it wont be easy to get and will probably cost you quite a premium.

You can try single shot exemption. Contact Valkyrie Arms.
