So Mom bought me a Springfield .45 XDm in Ohio recently for my birthday... she wants to mail it to me here but I said I am not sure I can even have it here since it's non-rostered and California is about stupid on gun laws.... then I hear you can have non-rostered handguns interfamily transferred and I'd have to DROS it here obviously.

so anyone have an idea on this? asked and answered already? Does she need to come all the way here to transfer it to me or can I have her mail it from her gun shop to my gun shop? Obviously, I will never be able to sell it here in California but oh well... Im still stoked Mom bought me a new .45 for my b-day :)

She can ship it, she needs to include a letter stating that it's a gift to you from her and it'll need to be entered in the DROS system under the interfamilial exemption.

Good news on this...once you get it here an in your name you can sell it at any point. The Roster does not apply to PPT sales in CA.

She has to ship it to an FFL-

The FFL has to be one that understands the rules for this type of transfers and agrees to do it- Call around.

As stated above you will need a letter stating it's gift and that she is your Mom.

Thanks! I'll let her know, her gun shop there had no idea and basically said "heck I didn't know California still permitted guns out there, haha"... they're not far off but oh well that's how the rest of America thinks of us.

I'll talk with my gun shop today and see about the procedure as well and update if I find anything out of the ordinary from what you said. I figured the letter and ship would be fine.... just asking :)

One thing to remember, your mom can't send assembled "large capacity" (over 10 round) magazines to you in California.

Oh...... of course she can't.... but 'repair kits' on the other hand.

You could sell it as a PPT, once here in CA.

It will need to be shipped with at least one working permantely altered 10 round magazine.

The mandatory safe handling demonstration requires a working magazine, the safe handling demonstration needs to be done before a CA FFL dealer can legally release the handgun to you. [PC 26850(a)]

Interesting, I've never had that happen.

Persons who are exempt from the HSC requirement are also exempt from the safe handgun demonstration.

If you are not an exempt person and the CA FFL dealer did not make you do this it's a violation that they've committed and it can result in them losing their FFL. The CA FFL dealer should have made you sign an affidavitt stating you performed the safe handgun demonstration. If you signed it without performing it, then it's evidence of purgery on your part. If they did not make you sign it, it's proof of them violating state law which can result in them losing their FFL.

I initially read the OP's post thinking he said he was getting a .40 XDM. :o
But, it's a .45 XDM. :facepalm:

The XDM-45 uses the same magazines as the XD-45.

So, factory 10 round magazines are available for the XDM-45.
Just get the 10 round XD-45 magazines.
