But thanks for the info.
Actually, that is the words that was used in the response to me, that Federal law required that it go through a FFL, so it had to be taxed. It does not really make sense since Federal law has nothing to do with the CA sales tax law, but that is how they are demanding money. In the case of C&R handguns and C&R FFL holders, there is no Federal requirement, so that causes an issue, which the result is that it may be sales tax exempt (it is not unlimited).
