I spoke with my FFL today and he told me that a Ruger exclusive single action 44 mag that I was looking to buy was not on the Ca list of approved guns. He advised me not to purchase it because he didn't want to take the chance on his FFL license. I was under the impression that any single action revolver was ok in Ca. So why would this exclusive version not be on the Ca approved list??

I welcome all of your comments and advice!

Find another more informed FFL...

I did check the DOJ list and this six gun was not listed. Would this really be a problem?

Single action revolvers are exempt

Edit:


"Note on single-action revolver sales in California: Pursuant to California law, single-action revolvers with at least a five-cartridge capacity, a barrel length of not less than three inches, and an overall length of at least seven and one-half inches are exempt from testing requirements. All currently manufactured Ruger single-action revolvers satisfy these criteria and therefore are exempt from the California requirements. These revolvers may be purchased in California even though they do not appear on the California Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale."

They have to be dimensionally compliant -- but the big Ruger's are certainly big enough in barrel and overall length. Dimensionally complaint SA revolvers are roster exempt. So, the dealer doesn't know what he's talking about. Find someone else.

I think all Ruger single action revolvers are CA legal. At least this is what the note on Ruger's CA approved web page says:

"Note on single-action revolver sales in California: Pursuant to California law, single-action revolvers with at least a five-cartridge capacity, a barrel length of not less than three inches, and an overall length of at least seven and one-half inches are exempt from testing requirements. All currently manufactured Ruger single-action revolvers satisfy these criteria and therefore are exempt from the California requirements.

As above, dimensionally compliant single action revolvers are roster exempt.

Have your FFL look at page 34 of the California Summary of Firearms Laws 2007 edition on the DOJ website.

Which of the three Distributor Exclusives were you thinking of getting?

That Davidson's one looks sweet!

This will work unless your FFL sells no new single action revolvers.

Visit his store, go to the display case and point to any single action revolver being sold new from dealer stock. Then ask him to find it on the roster. :confused:

As a back up, print out the CA law exempting SA revolvers and Ruger's website "CA OK" advisory.

Don't do this with a bunch of customers or his gun store buddies hanging about.

Hardwirejunkie I was thinking of getting the TALO. I haven't seen the Davidson yet. I will now have to check that out too.

Thank everybody for your help

Just about any JackWagon can get an FFL. A lot of them are really ignorant and just love to spout drama.

Find another one.

I got a Talo edition Ruger .22 single action shipped in to my FFL without issues. My FFL knows the law and actually does everything he can legally do to please his customers.

No single action is on the approved list.

Ouch; epic fail on your FFLs part; possible defense includes constant imposition of more bonehead laws. Still, an FFL ought to be up on his buisness; maybe he just doesn't want to bother?

Cheers,
