I'm a newbie at guns. Just came back from my cousin in Texas were he took me to a firing range. I loved it so much I bought a gun and currently doing my 10 day waiting to pick up my Sig SP2022.

My question is: My cousin has guns like Stoeger Cougar 8000 and CZ P07 which are not on the California legal -to-sell list. If my cousin moves to California, can he legally bring his guns here?

I figure 'yes' since he is not purchasing them in California but I'm not sure.

Any one clear on this aspect of the law?

Yes he can bring them, but must register them with DOJ. There is a fee, of which I am not sure. Also his standard capacity mags (any mag that holds over 10rds) are not legal to bring into the state, they must be disassembled into parts kits while living here. Welcome aboard and enjoy.

Yes he can however he must follow additional laws regardingmagazine capacity (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=387409) and assault weapons; he canít bring magazines greater than 10rds and if the pistol has a threaded barrel that = an assault weapon in CA and is illegal. He can exchange it for a non-threaded barrel or just remove the barrel and never use it in CA...

Welcome aboard! Looks like your basic questions have basic answers. Just FYI, you are usually better off asking Qs in one of the appropriate subforums. Not everybody looks into the new-here area for Qs to A.
