It is illegal to import, sell, give, offer for sale, manufacture, or loan magazines of greater than 10 round capacity in California.

There are a million good places to shoot. If you put your location in your profile so that it shows up in your post, we can probably narrow the list down for you.

thoughts on the gun? It's got a crappy trigger. Otherwise not a bad 1st pistol.

Welcome aboard. Being new, the one thing you really need to know. If you end up with any gun charge, ignorance of the law is no excuse. I am glad you asked and got an answer to your question. Take a look at this link to the DOJ, summary of California firearms laws, handbook. This is the latest edition of the handbook posted on the site, I know there is a newer one out there.

Not in CA. And don't bring one into CA, as a complete magazine. Fine to purchase, use and keep outside of CA. IANAL, so do some more looking around here for more answers.

Welcome aboard from Florida the "GunShine" state. :cool:

Sigmas are good guns copied off the GLOCK who promptly sued S&W and settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.

It should give you a life time of good service. Their triggers are a bit heavy for some folks, but then they were developed as self defense not target firearms.

Good luck with yours.
