Default Buying of ammo and shipping online

Ok, I'm sure this has been asked and covered but I couldn't find it searchig especially for my specific area. I'm going to be buying a CZ 82 that uses 9x18 makarov.

Anyway, what are the restrictions for getting ammunition by mail where I live which is West Hills, CA also known as Canoga Park,CA, zip codes 91304 or 91307 ?

Is there some special provision that someone has to sign for it, etc?

You have to sign for it, whether in CA or in Arizona.

You should be fine as far a CA law goes. The only local cities/counties banning mail order are Beverly Hills, Marin County, Oakland, Sacramento, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. AFAIK.

San Francisco does not ban mail order. Some companies however refuse to ship to San Francisco.

See:
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=538476
For clarification.

I've never had to sign for online ammo purchases. Some sellers leave you the option of requesting signature service.

Should be ok. I am in the same boat and have an order arriving this week.

If you are in LA, there is post floating around here about a mail box shop that will be able to sign for your shipment for a fee.

I have never signed for an ammo delivery. This is from Cabela's, Ammo-to-go, Natchez, etc.

Cabela's recently shipped me crate with a pair of spam cans inside, it appeared silently on my front porch, and I live in LA county.

Another question on delivery from online store. Is Ventura County in the Ban area for purchasing ammo from out of state suppliers?

You're good. I get ammo shipped to LA County all the time.

But yeah, you might have to sign for it.

I have been looking into this also as I just order some ammo online. This isn't carved in stone but what I saw was if is in the L.A. city limit then no shipping. In L.A. county is fine. I was searching for San Diego but didn't see anything saying no shipping to here just mentioned L.A.

Okay, I'll ask again, does anybody know if Ventura County is in the Ban area for online purchase of ammo?

Dude, you're in Los Angeles city. Your PD is LAPD. Your utilities are LADWP. You're in city limits. You can't ship to LA city. I usually ship to my parents who are in unincorporated LA County

How is Woodland Hills not LA city proper? Woodland Hills/Canoga Park is a neighborhood. Your city councilman is probably Dennis Zine, who's a part of the LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL.

You need to call or email each online retailer and ask. I live in Oakland. I have yet to have anyone quote me a law prohibiting online or mail order purchases of ammo but many places are convinced it's prohibited in Oakland and will not ship here. I do business with one online retailer who will ship to Oakland but not Sacramento county! I have no idea why.

When it comes to CA, The FUD is strong!

I live in LA County and my delivery (crate 880 rds.) was left at a common area mailbox 40 yards from my door. Guy was too lazy to lug it, glad I was home and saw it, no sigs required.

Some companies require a signature. I have tried to order from one company and because I was in LA County, he would not ship. Simple solution, go elsewhere. Place your order and find out.
