I haven't lived in CA for a long time, so I don't know what the state laws regarding out of state rifle/shotgun purchases are. But there are no federal laws against it. Some clarity would be nice, especially since I'm curious about how AB 809 would affect the bordering states.
For California residents, does not work for long guns, either. See
Calguns Wiki, Magazine Qs, Knife laws

Sometimes I forget: anything I post relative to CA law is in the light of current law, as of the date of the post.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
