I know in California you can only purchase ONE handgun every 30 days, however my question is Can you purchase a handgun and then SELL a different handgun the following week?

Is there a dros process for the seller of a FTF transfer that interrupts a purchase process too?

thanks CalGunners!

Yes you can. What you buy and what you sell are two different things. You can only buy one new handgun from a store every 30 days but you can sell as many as you want. Also keep in mind that you have no limit on private party transfers.

IIRC you can purchase as many handguns you want, BUT you can ONLY DROS 1 handgun every 30 days.

Buying and selling are different processes.

PPT are exempt from this! It only applies to dealer sales from their inventory (ie from an FFL). I believe consignment guns are also excluded.

You can DROS as many handguns as you want in one day if rhey are not being purchased from a dealer's inventory and there is no local codes preventing it.

Isn't there a limit of 5 hand gun sales for 1 calendar year?

Transactions, where any number of handguns can be in one sale transaction.

they're talking about sales, not purchases.

Can I dros one pistol from a dealer on a thursday then dros another pistol from a PPT sale on Friday? Or is that unacceptable in L.A. according to the 30 day wait? Can I pick up both guns after their 10 day wait?

LA is the complication - 1 in 30 there for BOTH PPT and dealer purchase.

Of course, could always buy out of the city - that's a restriction on dealer delivery, not on residents.

Are you saying I cannot buy two handguns within a 30 day period in L.A., even if both art PPT?

I thought you can buy as many as you like if they are PPT. L.A. county is different??? Can someone clarify?

I bought a gun PPT last week, it's ready for pick up in about 7 days, can I meet someone else tomorrow at a shop and start the transfer of another PPT pistol?

I thought you can buy as many as you like if they are PPT. L.A. county is different??? Can someone clarify? LA County does not have the same restriction.

wait a minute, where can you even buy guns anywhere in the CITY of L.A.? The only firearm stores close by are Burbank, Pasadena, and Culver City which are all in L.A. COUNTY but not considered CITY.

Maybe those laws are a huge part of the reason theres no gun store in Hollywood etc etc

Turner's in Reseda is one. I there are one or two others as well that are considered in the city of LA.
