Well, we will be living somewhere outside of San Fran. A bullet button for the AR is all I need? I am going to upload pics of my AR and Shotgun. I know the handguns have to be registered.

Yup, that's an off-list lower and a 16" barrel, just throw on a bullet button and only use 10rd mags. Disassemble any 11+ rd mags before moving- they're not illegal if they're not assembled.

I'm not sure if the handguns need to be registered or not, maybe somebody else knows if registration is required or optional.

Why is the 870 illegal? Do I need to put a fixed stock on it?

Welcome to CA. Safe Trip to you and whoever is joining you. Do you have an idea where "outside of SF" you'll be moving? North, South, East?

870 isn't illegal I just fibbed you. Ar bb and mags are all you need to worry about.

And registering your handguns I am not sure about.

Cool, got tons of info here. Wife loves the move, I am not thrilled. San Fran area, Walnut Creek,San Rafael or San Mateo. I am unfamiliar with all of the west coast. I am just worried I will be losing my gun hobby. Any outdoor rifle ranges in those areas? Kind of being strung along in this whole move. Fish out of water anyone.

I used to go fishing in Medina... and shooting, and gun-shows, and riding dirt-bikes, and classic-car cruise-nights or just driving out that way for no reason at all down the open, non-stop portions of Rt. 303 to "see what a car could do" (though that's not Medina - same stomping grounds).

Ever go out to Carnie's in Brunswick on a balmy August Saturday night? (now called "Brunswick Family Restaurant" from what I could see on Google).

Haven't been there in more than 25 years. Those were always good fun times. Those were always good gun times.

I don't miss the snow blizzards, I don't miss the mosquito blizzards, and I sure don't miss road-salt; but I do miss the commonality of common-sense, camaraderie among complete strangers, and a general decency that was always more than enough in surplus in that part of Ohio.

The M44 is definitely illegal, I'll take it off your hands. Okay, bad joke.

Im in alameda so let me know if you a any questions. Walnut creek is nice and you have a few outdoor paper ranges within 30 mins. Keep in mind some cities/counties won't let you ship ammo. I would stay away from sf as much as possible. I only go when I need to.

Welcome and good luck. I've meet some nice CG in the East Bay.

There are outdoor ranges throughout the SF Bay Area. I had a website which listed all of them, but I can't find them now. Anyone else can help?

Unless you are a multibillionaire and can bring several strong pro 2A democrats that you are relocating, TURN AROUND AND GO BACK. It is NOT worth the headache...

Save yourself while you still can.

There is actually a really cool link that I have somewhere, it is kinda old, but a hold a sec, lemme see what I can find...

Yeah, here it is:

argh, im SF born and raised and cant distance myself from that city fast enough. i was just there tonight in the mission district and was so utterly annoyed by my experiance there. its a fun place if you're a young naive drunk, but any decent person with common sense and the place is so trashy, crowded, loud, dangerous, loud, loud, loud......i swear i need earplugs just to go out for food. SF is full of annoying privileged young drunks pissing everywhere, cops left and right, drunk drivers narrowly missing accidents, groups of thugs and vagrants hiding in the shadows, drug dealers openly selling on corners....and worst of all everyone looks at you funny when you want to defend yourself from all the filth the city has created.

GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND!!
