Default SG no longer selling Ammo to Calif

I tried to order amo cans yesterday and ammo today and the website wouldn't let me ship to Calif. I called Sportsmansguide and they said they no longer ship ammo and ammo related items to Calif. To my knowledge no new laws have went into effect have they? I buy a lot from SG, they just lost all my business.

They just lost a significant amoun of business IMO. Since California's laws keep getting strickter, if/when an ammo ban becomes a reality Californians will mad dash to any and all ammo sources.

What are you talking about? The OP referred to Sportsmans Guide.

As long as it's not SGammo that stopped selling ammo to us

As far as Sportsman's Guide, they were always weird, and came up with weird rules of their own. I've long since stopped using them.

5 years ago they were great; they have an amazing deal with UPS or eat a lot of freight cost. Now, they are too successful, apparently, to figure out about imaginary California laws.

Well SG is just a bit more than Cheaperthandirt, but CTD never has free shipping deals and promos, which makes stuff more. I just got in yesterday some really nice boat seats clearanced from SG for 20 bucks each and free ship. No more SG, they are removed from my bookmarks. They wouldnt even send a stungun cane i wanted to give as a gift

I believe its on certain caliber which is stupid, I only see "No Cali" when I tried to order 7.62x54r but all the 5.45x39 spam cans are Cali Friendly!!!! I can get 7.62x54r from SGammo, they have better deals of this caliber type than SG anyways

I thought this was well known by now, like CTD. Although I do enjoy looking through both of their free catalogs

Anywhere in CA or only where they have identified on their website? Do you live in any of the below mentioned cities or counties?

Ammunition cannot be shipped Parcel Post. If shipping to IA, must be 21. Please check your State, County and City laws for restrictions before ordering Ammunition.

I used to get stuff from them untill i realized they were anti-CA Dbags

Get your ammo from SGammo ... great outfit

Not so. SG is wrong about some rifle ammunition being "armor piercing" and therefore not legal in California (by CalDOJ definition there is no such thing as "armor piercing" rifle ammunition). Its that ammo they won't ship. Everything else is still good to go assuming the county in question allows it.

I just ordered three buckets of .22lr and 500 rds of 9mm from Sportsman's Guide on Monday. Should arrive any day...

The lady that I placed the order with didn't bring up anything.

This is a long time problem with Sportsman Guide. Absolutely nothing new and Posted about many many times here...

They refuse to ship the dumbest things that are in no way restricted or illegal in the state of California. I've seriously seen no ship to CA on AR dust covers and Glock slide cover plates.

Look at their magazine, 99% of it will not ship to CA. Their website was never any better. I gave up on them a long time ago and have not looked back.

Better prices and more California friendly service can be found elsewhere. Like SGAmmo for example. Or better yet, your local gun shops.
