Okay I'm new here and ready to learn a lot about guns and owning them for the rest of my life. Just turned 18.

Unfortunately I'm frustrated that RRA aka Rock River Arms doesn't have any quality FFL dealers in Sacramento/Elk Grove. I'm looking into getting the RRA Elite CAR A4 with A2 Carry Handle Assembly. Can't find anything useful on the internet. Someone please help. It's upsetting me a lot.

You can own a rifle and shotgun at 18 but pistol is 21. Ridiculous. How old do you have to be to get an assault weapon.

oh yeah... WELCOME!

+1 for Golden State Tactical.

If that doesn't work, do what another CG'r already suggested and find a local FFL that will do it for you. There are a couple in the Sacramento area that do not charge an arm and a leg.

That's irrelevant I think, you should go read the link provided by chillincody or the calguns wiki. Can't do a brother to brother transfer.

Can someone provide a link to that part of the wiki? I'm on a vpn right now and my links are coming up weird.

Still gotta take the class. A lot of steps I still gotta do oh well. Hopefully I'll have saved up enough money. But I'd still like to make a run at assault weapons now if I can.

The transfers can only be made between a parent to/from child, a grandparent to/from grandchild, and a husband to/from wife.

Here's the wiki on it.
http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/Transferring_Firearms_Among_Some_Family_Members

You can finish reading that before you even finish letting your coffee cool down.
If you wanted to do a transfer from your brother, you would have to do a scenario like the one in the wiki, "i. e. Staying entirely within the letter of the law, Abel may accomplish a transfer to his brother Cain by first transferring the firearm to either parent (Adam or Eve), and then the parent would transfer the firearm to their other son, Cain."

Still gotta take the class. A lot of steps I still gotta do oh well. Hopefully I'll have saved up enough money. But I'd still like to make a run at assault weapons now if I can.

What class? If you are talking about the HSC(Handgun Safety Certificate), it's a 25$ 30 question test you take by walking into your local gun store (not all gun stores have the test, call first if you have to drive far.)
And find a local FFL, they will be able to help you out. Looks like a few people have already given you the name of a solid FFL that will get you situated.

Well I thought I'd have to go to a shooting range type thing but I guess not. I can just get the questions online and study that way so when I do I won't have to fret or guess the answers. Too bad I won't be able to use them on the exam because it'd be considered cheating. It would go by a lot faster though.

Don't worry about it too much. If you want to go above and beyond you can read the study guide the state gives.
http://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/pdfs/firearms/forms/hscsg.pdf?

If you hang around here for a little bit, you'll be over qualified for it in no time. Each 25$ also gets you two chances at the test.

And you don't need this for your rifle purchase. Have an I.D., proof of residency, a clean record and you're ready to purchase.

Trying to look out for you buddy, be careful and do a little research on CA gun laws.

Possession of a silencer is a felony in CA,

PC. 33410

Any person, firm, or corporation who within this state possesses a silencer is guilty of a felony and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison or by a fine not to exceed ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment.

Same thing, can't have them. You'll find that many of the CA laws aren't the best ever when it comes to guns.

Silencer = Suppressor

Most silencers don't actually make a gun silent, just quieter than it would be without one. Don't believe anything you've seen in the movies.

Also, Assault Weapon = made up term designed to vilify certain "scary" looking semi-auto rifles. Don't play along with the anti-gunners attempt to control the language of firearms.
