Default LEO able to receive shipment of Ammo from person?

I know there are a few companies willing to work with LEOs with credentials, but how does this apply to a person wanting to ship Ammo to a LEO here?

I don't believe there is any restriction to a private party shipping you (exempt person) ammo. The only issue they might encounter is if USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc... try to give them a hard time about it, but I could be wrong.

Iím hoping the same thing.

Would it more beneficial if having them send it to a police station/building? I mean so ups or fed ex wonít give them a hard time.

Fedex and UPS deliver ammo to my house all the time. They have no way of knowing if I am exempt from the law or not. It's not their job to enforce the law and they really don't care.

Have you or your friend looked at how much it’s going to end up costing to ship ammo to CA? Those shipping prices are no joke.

Yeah. Itís not too bad. Only about $20. Worth it though for something I really need and cannot find anywhere else.

As i read and understand the law governing this issue, if the purchaser is law enforcement and exempt, then the trade/sale/giving is lawful.

PC 30312:

(c) Subdivisions (a) and (b) shall not apply to the sale, delivery, or transfer of ammunition to any of the following:

(1) An authorized law enforcement representative of a city, county, city and county, or state or federal government, if the sale, delivery, or transfer is for exclusive use by that government agency and, prior to the sale, delivery, or transfer of the ammunition, written authorization from the head of the agency employing the purchaser or transferee is obtained, identifying the employee as an individual authorized to conduct the transaction, and authorizing the transaction for the exclusive use of the agency employing the individual.

(2) A sworn peace officer, as defined in Chapter 4.5 (commencing with Section 830) of Title 3 of Part 2, or sworn federal law enforcement officer, who is authorized to carry a firearm in the course and scope of the officer’s duties

It does not specify the ammunition has to be for duty use, only that the officer is authorized to carry a firearm.
