Question is there a limit to how many rifles you can buy a day?

I'm a newb. the Question is the topic headline...
Now adayz you never know when a new gun law passes. so
Just curious? I know per hand gun in C.A. theres a 30 day period. I'm a proud owner of a sig sauer p226.
But tomorrow I'm going out to buy my first rifle a Ruger 10/22
and maybe depending on my question ,buy a Remington 870 12ga. shotgun both at big five. I'm leaving for camping on friday and will come back after the 11 day waiting period,thats why I'm asking this silly question.also because
In two weeks I was planning to go out to josha tree (desert) where my buddy stays,so we can go shooting. again, any limit to how many rifles can be bought at one time in the same day? sorry for the dumb Q.

Thanks for you time and help in advance!

No limit. More rifles you buy the same day the better because multiple long guns can all go on 1 DROS form saving you $$$


That being said I would avoid Big 5 and their stupid/semi-illegal 11 day wait period at all costs.

Welcome to the Forum!!

As for limits on rifle purchases, you should call your credit card company about that..........seriously.

In theory yes. But I'm sure there's some sort of red flag system where you'll get asked about it.

As I understand it, when a person buys more than a certain ammount within a given time period the FFL has to fill out a form for the DOJ. It simply lets them know that you are buying more frequently than normal and nothing ever comes of it happening a couple times. If you buy in bulk many times over and over again you may get contacted by the ATF or DOJ but as long as everything is legal, such as you are not selling them out the back of your van to kids on the street, then it's fine.

Case in point; a while back a man came into an inherritance in the $100k+ range and decided to move over from working in a gunshop to owning a gunshop. He got his place, filled out the paperwork and sent in his application. During the wait (which can be close to a year long) he started to acquire firearms for his future business venture; store liquidations, estate sales, etc. He was buying hundreds of guns a week for an extended period of time. It wasn't after many weeks that the ATF finally took note and visited him. After they discovered what was going on, they went their jolly way (although if I remember right there was more to the story, but it's not relevant to this question).

So the moral of the story is that even if you are buying over 100 guns at a time, and even if you do it several times in a month, you have nothing to fear as chances are nothing will happen, but even if they did as long as you're not doing anything illegal you have nothing to fear.

There was a thread about this a little while back.

So, from reading that, it seems that there are limits where you will get called by the DOJ/ATF. One calgunner ran into it while trying to DROS a bunch of lowers.

I've done 5 longarms on a single DROS, twice. Neither transaction appeared to raise red flags.

Welcome to the forum
Unless I've been a sleep I haven't heard that the 10 day waiting period increased to a 30 day waiting period for a hand gun. Last month I bought an XD and the wait was only 10 days.

All he meant is that there is a limit of 1 *NEW* handgun purchase a month. The wait is still 10 days.

I only have to fill out an ATF form when you buy more than a few handguns at a time. I have only ever had to do that once on a guy that PPTed 5 pistols. Otherwise you are limited to 1 handgun every 30 days (with PPT and C&R exceptions).

Long guns you can do as many as you want as often as you want. Only the DOJ knows how many you bought and I am not sure how many at once it would be before they would care.

so I have a question, how many used handguns can you buy at once? I have heard that you can buy like one used and one new at the same time.....

There is no hard set limit on PPT handguns. Who knows what number might raise a red flag in the system, but I do know that it's more than 8, that's for sure. New handguns have a 1 in 30 day rule, unless you have an exemption.

There's a form for the BATFE that gets filled out when you buy multiple handguns in a 7 day period. I bought 2 new handguns in one day recently and they had to do the form. I think that's the third or fourth time they've had to send that form in on me. No black helicopters or men in my bushes.

All this fuss over it is kinda funny. If you're clean and can pass the check to buy guns, there's not much that the BATFE or CA DOJ can say other than ask you something along the lines of "Why so many?" or "You're not doing straw purchases, are you?".

Just buy it just before closing and pick it up early in the morning of the 11th day.

Besides, buying just before closing ought to torque their jaws just a wee bit.

Some people would rather work at a job they love for an extra 10 years than retire from a job they hate two years early. You can't put a price on happiness.

Nope, not really. See similar thread here: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=107557.

Well, perhaps, but don't be surprised when you got home and find the BATF camped out in your driveway.

Seriously, I need to check with my FFL and see if he charges more for mulitple rifles on one DROS. If not, my trip to Reno next month may end up a costly one, and not from gambling.

You need to be carefuly about using the terms used and new for handgun purchases. Whether they are used or new does not matter. You can only by one handgun straight from any dealer statewide once every 30 twenty-four hour period (aka 30 days). It does not matter if it is new or used. If the dealer is selling it from his inventory, it goes into DROS the same.

Now I have heard there is an exception for consignment guns, but I am not sure how that works.

Now a PPT is where you buy a gun from an invdividual and use the dealer just to make the transfer. Those are not-limited. You can buy as many of those as you want as often as you want. Your PPT DROS does not count against your 30 days.
