I glad this forum exists, i think you can help me.. 2 questions..

1) I just moved here from Alabama, and brought with me a few guns. One of which is a small Beretta Mod. 21A (.22), which i don't think is approved. I have met somebody who wants to purchase it, can he buy it and will he be able to register/get his permit in California??

2) Also, a friend i have in Alabama wants to sell me a Kel Tec P32, which is what i want, which is also not on the approved list ( i don't think). Will i be able to purchase this and get my California permit or is this illegal??

Thanks for the help guys...

1) yes
2) pretty sure no. Should have bought it before you became a CA resident.

Perfectly Legal, must be sold via PPT (Private Party Transfer) @ a CA FFL


2) Also, a friend i have in Alabama wants to sell me a Kel Tec P32, which is what i want, which is also not on the approved list ( i don't think). Will i be able to purchase this and get my California permit or is this illegal??

This would have to done before you become/became a CA resident.

Forgive my question, but what do you mean 'permit'? are you referring to a CCW?

Well technically im not a resident here yet. Why do you say that, because it is coming from out of state??

Yes, CCW.

You have to buy it while out of state.

Also, where are you moving to in CA? Pretty hard to get a CCW/CHL in most of CA.

you cant have it shipped here, you have to buy it out of state, with your original ID from out of CA.

Have you ever completed a process similar to this?? I'm just worried when he goes to register he will get in trouble? Maybe i'm over-thinking it. I do appreciate your help. Sounds like i need to take the cash and find a legal weapon or wait for the Kel-Tec to become legal..

Its getting confusing here, see if I have it straight:

1. You are right now a California Resident. You brought a Beretta 21a with you. Yes, you can sell it to another California resident by doing a PPT at a FFL.

2. You are right now a California resident who wants to buy a Keltec P32 from your Alabama friend. No, he cannot sell it to you as it is not on the list. There are ways around this, but it is more difficult and costly.

3. You and your friend want a CCW in california. That has nothing to do with what guns you have or buy or if you had a CCW in another state. You need to see if your local LE issues them, do the paperwork, training, etc.

You can sell it if you brought it in to CA, as a Face to face PPT only.

Your buddy can NOT ship you an off roster gun.

Getting your CCW, good luck, CA aint very friendly.

ALL firearms in CA must go through a FFL, with a few exceptions for C&R rifles.
