Default List Of California Friendly Online Gun Dealers

I know everyone is probably familiar that many sellers/retailers from online sites(Gun America,Gun Broker etc.) refuse to sell to California due to the new hoops that need to be jumped through or for some misplaced protest to California laws. The reality is of course they are only hurting their own bottom lines and the ability for law abiding California gun owners to purchase the often hard to find models that are legal here.
Perhaps, we can start a list of those retailers who happily sell to California and direct more business to these establishments so they continue to see the value of selling in California. We are likely on the peak of the gun buying bubble so many retailers are going to see numbers start to decline. When they ask around to find out what their colleagues are doing, it would be great for them to hear the money being made in our state. California may no longer be more trouble than its worth...
Post the dealers you've worked with and I'll keep updating the list.


1. The Exchange
Great guys with no issues sending to california

Republic of Texas Arms is excellent. Ask for Brian who is the owner. They have excellent prices and are really cool.

Wow just bought M&P 9 Shield from Onlinegundeal, great price, they have OC armory info to ship today, arrive tomorrow.
They also had 9mm Shield magazines so I bought only two. Did not have any other M&P mags or magpro or Mcgar's.
All the other online store are out of stock of the Shield.

Gunbroker. They allow shipment to kali. It's the sellers (some of them) that don't want to ship here in kali But majority are friendly.
Heb 9:27 "And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgement."

1Co 1: 18 "For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."

Consider your final destiny, there is no second chance there.

Not a Problem !!! We want your business !!!
Handguns and Rifles MUST be CA Legal - If you're not sure Check !!!

Well, if they won't ship off roster guns for SSE I don't see them as being particularly California friendly.
My favorites are:
Kentucky Gun Company
CZ Custom

and for supplies, always Exile Machine

I just purchased an off roster handgun from Tombstone Tactical.

They had no issues with it.

There are some private ones on Gunbroker/Guns America, but I can't recall a legit online store that doesn't ship to CA.

Check out I haven't purchase anything from them yet but I talked to one of the owners (Eric) and he sounds like a stand up guy. The site is new but it has a live inventory system and great prices. We spoke a bit about gun laws in CA and he's okay with shipping pistols to CA for SSE as well as rifles to FFL's who would allow us to install bullet buttons at the premises. He's also looking into installing Raddlocks on rifles prior to shipping.
