I bought 2 guns last month one considered new as it was owned by the store Krauswerk in San Mateo, and another from a private party on consignment at Irvington arms. both were picked up within a week of each other.

I dunno... I like to collect guns and 1 a month just SUCKS! the one positive is that I do save a bit more money... but then that just goes to more rifles.

If you get the Certificate of Eligability from CALDOJ along with your C&R, you will be exempt from the 1 handgun a month law. This includes new handguns as well.

Laws aside, how many handguns per month can you afford? I'd love to be able to get 1 a month, but I can't even afford THAT!

Still, I am with you guys - I think the restriction sucks.

There is a difference between used and consignment when buying a gun.

I don't know about C&R, but private party purchases are not restricted to one-a-month as far as I know.

I've never heard of a Certificate of Eligability. Is it a C&R thing only? Its nice to know my options as I can't afford more than 1 a month anyways. Also, the 1 gun a month only applies to handguns, right?

I've had local gunshops tell me that consignment was NOT the same as a private party sale.
Most of the time I was able to get them to contact the owner and see if they would sell it as a private party sale.
I'm not sure if all that business about consignment was correct.
These same two gunshops (one is out of business now-retirement) offered up wrong advice more than once.
