Default Reserve Officers and California Gun Laws?

Is this information posted by another user correct as far as exemptions for reserve officers?

And do the "level" of reserves (as defined by the department/agency) actually not come into play?

Although that is good info, it is a bit outdated as it is from 2010. Before you go forward, I would do a little more research online and/or call the California Reserve POA. I looked in the most recent PC and 12125 no longer exists.
There was a bunch of conversions that were done within the past 18 months or so.
You can check PC 16380, 16900, 17140 and sections 31900 through 32110.
Good luck

Hey, someone actually read what I posted...

Effective 2012, these sections were renumbered. Here is a document that the CRPOA release to cross reference:
http://www.crpoa.org/pdfs/California...enumbering.pdf

AFAIK, they were renumbered to make it easier to look up since many sections got so long after being appended over time.

Yeah I know about the renumbering, but it is mostly just a renumbering.
I haven't learned the new PC numbers because I already took the time to learn a lot of the old ones haha.

And thanks code33, so nothing much changed other than the PC numbers.

I am a former level one reserve peace officer, during my tenure (86-96) I purchased a backup weapon bypassing the 10 day wait with a letter from the chiefs office. I would think you could still do the same today.

Perhaps "full-time paid" was not in the code at that time or it slipped through.
Thanks for your years of service.
