Several-part question.

I understand that an officer of the law, here in California, can purchase non-roster weapons. That being said, does that exemption privilege expire when said officer retires from active duty? Unless I'm wrong, some benefits remain, such as being allowed to carry concealed.

So, number one: Is a retired LEO still able to buy an off-roster weapon?

Two: Is it then simply a matter of going to any FFL dealer here in CA, in order to conduct a PPT transfer to a non-officer? How would something like high-cap mags work?

Sorry if this has been covered, specifically. I read through some of the roster exemption threads, but those seem to weigh in on single shot.

Yes, upon retirement you are no longer allowed to purchase non-roster handguns.

No, see above.

Are you talking about purchasing a non-roster handgun form an LEO? If so, yes, the LEO can PPT that firearm to a non-LEO.

See above.

And Mags would need to be blocked or be made into parts kits for you to recieve the firearm as well

Thanks, guys. Good to know. Is it indeed, true, that they do get to maintain their right to concealed carry once retired?

Yes retired (honorably of course) officers can CCW ANYWHERE in USA as per LEOSA. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_Enforcement_Officers_Safety_Act)

... presuming their department authorizes it, which seems to be near universally true.
