If the list ever gets updated then I "will" have three registered AW's.

But this would be unlikley.

I got none :(
tho, that may be a good thing, as I have no "registered" items.
But still, I wish I was old enough to have reged 1 or 51.

What's an AW???

It is a word conjured up by the media and anti-gun politicians to scare the populace back in the 80's. The title 'AW' has NO revilance to ANY of my semi-auto centerfire rifles. :cool:

oh... more than a couple I suppose. All reg'd and legal. Get the odd look at the range but I keep multiple copies of my paperwork handy everywhere.

I was too young to get the CA idea of an "assualt weapon." When I get out of state (1 more year and counting), I have almost enough saved for a Stemple Thompson .45.

Don't worry, there were many of us who were old enough to register but opted to sell our guns. In my case I only really picked up a rifle or two because of the ban but the amusement factor wore out so quickly I sold it before the ban ever set in. Post-ban I got sucked into the whole OLL thing but eventually it just reminded me why I sold instead of registered in the first place. The only thing you can really shoot with "Assault Weapons" registered or not is paper and targets because the Department of Fish & Game is not issuing tags for humans.

The reason I bought a bunch is because it gets really boring and expensive shooting hunting rifles and hunting ammunition when you just want to throw a lot of lead downrange, and AWs are the most fun at the range.

And you can shoot plenty with AWs... 3 gun, long range, varmints on private property or on BLM land with the okay from the county, etc...

Hey Zumbo are you saying you can't use an "AW" for hunting?

Man, I love documents like that...nice an official.

I view that document itself as the permission. I know there are some that feel better when they have some sort of paperwork with their OLL's....this should help those people that shoot on BLM land.

great share.

I had quite a collection of AWs that I inherited from my father before the ban, but I was out of state with the Navy for the entire registration period and didn't find out about it until it was too late. Drove them over the border and sold them in AZ, wasn't anything else I could do. Damn shame.

That must have hurt.....

What really bugs me is that when I die, I can't even pass my AW Airsoft guns down to my kids....My wife will have too destroy them or sell them out of state...

Here's my one finger salute to the CA politicians that made this possible.

Sorry, but that is just not true. I have several books published in the 80's that use the term "assault weapons" to describe EBRs. The term was first used to describe semi-auto military styled rifles by the gun industry, not the Brady Bunch.

Yes, but you should always contact the county sheriff and local BLM office to make sure that BLM hasn't leased that property and to make sure that you're shooting in the right area. If not, the sheriff will tell you where it would be best to go, in most cases.

And it was the Calaveras County Sheriff that supposedly had the authority to shut down the BLM shooting area near Campo Seco. Bay area transplant wench (postmaster, too) complained. That's all it took. But hey, at least motocross, horseback riding, and camping are still allowed (none of which I partake in). Wench!

Are you sure you are not confusing "assault weapon" with "assault rifle" ?

Write the CA DOJ, I have talked to them, they will send you forms to register them. Being away on military is a good excuse and nothing you could help. They will let you post-facto register them if you were a CA resident before you left/PCS'd.

For me, I was a criminal overnight, but I was also in the military. I figured hey, I am a felon, but they can come to Afghanistan to get me if they want :)

Gay laws mean gay measures. The guns sitting in a box did no harm to anybody. As I am sure that the other 80% in CA not registered are also, doing nothing more than sitting collecting dust in a safe or garage somewhere. Quite the effective gun control measure there.
-------
You know in TX my neighbors saw me unloading my car from the range, came over, and he broke out my AK right there to check it out, right on my driveway with kids and moms who walked by and thought nothing of it. I guess since most men hunt the women are used to camouflage guys and guns during hunting season and just roll their eyes and go about their business.

I am not sure you could do that in CA without fear of getting a visit by P.D. to check your Socialist registration# or party membership card.

Too late, sold them over a decade ago. I thought about calling DOJ, but I was afraid of having legal troubles when they found out I had unregistered AWs, I didn't think I wanted to collect guns because I thought that my life was taking a different path, my mother (who is not a big gun fan) wanted them out of the house, and (to be honest) I needed the money. At the time it didn't seem to be such a bad decision, but in hindsight I traded a lot of history and memories of my father for about ten grand. Stupid. But what can you do? I took my lumps, learned my lesson, and moved on.

Why confused? Roberti-Roos passed in 1989, the registration period ended on January 1, 1991. I was in the Canoe Club from 1987 to 1993, by the time I got home and found out about the AW ban the reg period had been over for two years. So I sold them towards the end of 1993, which was over 13 years ago.

Yeah, these were old-time AWs. We had a Colt AR-15A4, Uzi Model B, Steyr AUG, AR-180, and H&K Models 94 and 93. They were all named under Roberti-Roos. I sold a lot of other stuff at the same time that wasn't banned, really kicking myself for it now. Colt Python, IHC Garand, IBM Carbine, SC 03A3, half a dozen Colt 1911s of various incarnations, all kinds of good stuff. On the list of really stupid things I've done in my life, it isn't at the top, but it's up there.
