View Full Version : Purchasing ammo online... shipped to Bay Area?

Does anyone know where I can find the regulations on purchasing ammo online and having it shipped directly to your doorstep? I am particularly interested in Alameda County. Are there certain brands/types of ammo that are banned from being shipped to this area?

just the usual illegal ammo in kalif like incendiaries, tracers, etc.

i have had a few cases of ammo sent to me, in fremont.

just about all places requires you to have a signed form faxed to them saying you are over 18, legal to receive ammo, blah blah blah...

dont know if there's anything in your city...

careful with UPS though. i had one case sent to me. big RED sticker saying ADULT SIGNATURE REQUIRED.

i hear doorbell. i run to the door. only to see brown truck speeding away and box with red sticker on it, sitting on front door...

As far as I'm aware the only place in Alameda County that some places won't ship is Oakland. As the above post notes, California law still applies, but if it's legal to buy in CA it's legal to mail order it.
