Default CCW

Hi, I'm new and I have a question. Sorry if I asked this in the wrong area...but here it goes. Ok, so I would like to get a hand gun that is not California legal but plan on obtaining it by PPT (Private Party Transfer) from another state. If I get this gun and legally bring it in to Ca, would I be allowed to use it as a CCW as long as it has 10 round mags? I'm worried that it wont be alowed as a CCW if it's not on the CADOJ..

Crossing state lines, it has to be on the "roster" or exempt. Doing a PPT doesn't get you around that rule unless you are doing a transfer from another CA resident (and almost always in person, though this part may not be set in stone, check with your FFL). I may be wrong, but the better place to ask this question is in legal, but search around, I am sure it has been covered multiple times.

Hey CalGun Members…New member here. I have my first CCW interview scheduled in October and have a couple of questions regarding the guns I will add to my list of carried weapons. 1) I wish to transfer ownership of one of my wife’s guns to my ownership. Is there a special process for this? 2) I purchased a gun in the 1980’s and would like to make sure this gun is registered in my name before I add it to my CCW paperwork. Would anyone recommend a FFL in the Elk Grove area? This GREAT site is packed with so much info that it would take a lifetime to get thru it all!!!! Wow.

Default Another noob to this wonderful forum

Hello everyone. Just wanted to introduce myself as well as thank all of you for the massive amount of info you all have contributed to this wonderful forum.
I'm a returning to guns noob. Grew up with wonderful instructors, my Father and my Uncle, but stpped away for the last 20 years. Now getting back in with a restore of my first rifle (Remington Mohawk10c).
Due to the economy and my lack of a nice sum of money at any one time, I am planning on building my first CA legal AR-15 (buying it in sections over a period of time) so if anyone can offer any pointers or point me to the right section I would be be very grateful.

As you can tell, my small introduction is more than just a "Hi Guys". I'm a talker, so I look forward to talking/chatting with you all.

Have a great day,
Sam

Howdy, all. I am a long time reader, but a first time poster here. The site is very informative for someone just getting into firearms, lots of knowledge and experience.

My main interest is in older guns (especially surplus); there is so much beauty in a nice wood stock and a blued finish. See you on the forums!

Hello Calgunners. I was an avid firearms enthusiast (gun nut) in my youth, but had to give it up for a while due to time/money constraints. My old passion recently reawakened after 17 years of slumber ... believe me, I really did feel like Rip Van Winkle when I found out that my favorite powder had been discontinued and S&W hardly makes revolvers anymore. I hope to become an active participant in Calguns -- I'm truly amazed by everything that has been accomplished, both online and offline.

Hey everyone,

My friends are all long time readers of this place and recently introduced it to me. Figured I'd make an account and introduce myself.

Prior Service US Army turned Professional Geek (web development).

My beloved is the M1 Garand in beautiful condition handed down from my step-dad. She's amazing and though she's an armory edition she's also all original.

Sold the Glock 17 to my co-worker so that leaves me with my M1 Garand and a fun little bolt action Marlin 22NM (.22 WMR) rifle.

I'm looking to get a new rifle, one that's considerably cheaper to shoot than the M1; not sure if I want to go the Saiga IZ 132 or an AR.

They both look like fun and to be honest one of my favorite rifles to shoot was my old M16... The AR15 is just so small; I don't like the M4 sizing ;(


Anyways there's my intro! See you guys on the range.

- Rob

Hello everyone. I actually stumbled across this place almost by accident, after receiving a notice about the dreaded SB 249. I find it rather disheartening to see our rights being voted away almost on a daily basis, thus forcing us to form organizations in order to standup for our rights as freeborn citizens. I wonder what happens next? Do we need to join a speech club to protect our freedoms of speech? Or an art club to protect our right to expression? This trend is getting rather tiresome and ridiculous.

New to the Site, I've lurked on it off and on for a while.
I have over 20 years in the USMC, so I know my way around a variety of weapons. I currently own a Ruger P94, AR-15 (5.56), Saiga AK-74 (5.45), Win 1894 (.32 Spl), and soon to be owner of a Win 70 (.300) unless I change my mind and change my layaway to a .308 or 7mm-08.
I joined to get a better knowledge of the CA gun laws. I live on the border by Yuma during the week, and go home to Escondido on weekends.

Hey Everyone,

Technically this is post 2 after a short "pm sent" post for a Mossy 590 for sale. I have a Mosin 91/30 and a passed down WW2(?) pilot pistol from Europe. Been lurking on here forever but just decided to create an account to get some more info on the pistol and pick up some more toys. I live in San Pedro and mall crawler refers to my Jeep Grand. lol

Hey guys,

I'm an avid shooter and lover of all things tactical. I've been lurking on here for years, but I decided to finally get around to creating an account.


Some info about me:

I'm a 19 year old male from Orange County. I'm currently going to college in NorCal, though. I own several firearms, my favorites of which are my Noveske N4 (Bullet Button build) and Glock 19 (interfamilial transfer). I look forward to learning from and contributing to the CalGuns community.

Hello everyone.
New to the site, discovered you when looking into CA gun laws.
I'm a Brit and have been living in CA for about 9 months. I'm currently getting my Hunter Safety course completed so that I can get my Hunters License as I'm not even allowed to touch a weapon without one, being on a H1-B visa is quite restrictive :-(

Once I have my Hunters License I'll be off to the range with some of my "local" friends and their hardware and I will then be looking to buy myself a rifle, I can see that I'll get some good direction from everyone here. ^_^

Hello.
I'm a born again gun owner. I haven't owned a gun since High School. I live on the Central Coast. My wonderful wife, in collaboration with badhabit90, got me a AR-15 (5.56) rifle for Father's day. So, now I have a project. I'm trying to learn as much as I can about my rifle and guns in general. There is a lot to learn. The one thing I have learned so far is that the State of California is a joke when it comes to gun laws. I am looking forward to lurking on the forums and trying to absorb as much info as possible.

Hi Folks, Rich from norcal here. How in the world did I not know about calguns before? How did we survive before the internet???

hoping to enrich my gun ownership experience through sharing the community experiences of others who also have to deal with the same complex and limiting laws of our part of our country...
