just because CADOJ claims that the C&R+COE exemption does not apply to modern handguns, the actual PC does not support that position. It does not limit the exemption to just C&R handguns.
And not every T,D, or H would go out to get the combo because it would cost them ~$130 for the first year and $22 every year after that.
And many of us have used the C&R+COE successfully to buy more than one modern handgun in a 30-day period, even at places like Bass Pro.
that said, I have talked with Bill at Turner's about this before, at that time he said that they were in conversation with their lawyer and CADOJ about it, and they weren't ready to allow the exemption.
Do you want an AOW or C&R SBS/SBR in CA?
