Yes, totally legal to privately buy and resell commercial ammo.
You just can't sell your own reloads, as you need a manufacturing license for that.

Its legal, who is the nut job that said that! There are plenty of other local stores with knowledgeable staff.

They ever finish that website "under construction"?

The asian gentelman who works there was talking to another person about this topic. I decided to ask him a few questions about it. First off he told me he is a cop and second explained to me that it is illegal and to watch out. He compared it to a person who sells alcohol without a license and how it is a felony if caught.

If you are talking about the Gun Exchange in east San Diego County, check their ratings on Yelp. I've even put a few scathing remarks there. I don't see how they stay in business.

You must sell your ammo for half of what you paid for it.

Of course they tell you it's illegal. That way you only buy it from them. And no offense to the police, of which I have many friends, but while ignorance of the law is no defense for regular folk, cops and their defenders constantly like to claim that cops can't be expected to know every law on the books. So when they don't know, they make it up and let a DA sort it out, especially since they can't be held accountable for "doing their job."

Well, if dip**** assemblynazi, Nancy Skinner, gets her way it will be illegal. Here is just small part of her bill that past committee...hopefully to be killed on the floor.
Note section 2.

"30301.
(a) Anyone in this state, prior to selling, transferring, or otherwise furnishing ammunition to an individual or business entity in this state or any other state, shall do all of the following:
(1) Require proper identification from the purchaser in the form of a driver’s license or other photographic identification issued by a state or the federal government.
(2) Be an authorized firearms dealer, pursuant to Section 26500.

It is a felony to buy ammo from anyone else besides Gun Exchange.

Rabidmonk, that sounds interesting. Could you share a couple of specific cases where people were arrested for something that was legal and the d.a defended them as just doing their job.

How about this:
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=429902

Were any of the individual arresting officers held accountable for what should have been a wrongful arrest based on the factual finding that no law was broken, or did they otherwise subsequently face any disciplinary actions?

How about an example of LEOs MURDERING an unarmed drunk without warning him to drop the water hose nozzle? Every officer who watched the victim for 8 minutes, never made any attept to conntact him and then fired at him should be in prision for murder. Every other officer on scene who did nothing to stop the officers who were firing at the unarmed victim should also be in prision as accessories to murder. Their crimes were also text book cases where gang enhancements should have been used. Instead, the DA did not even attempt to prosecute them. The city of Long Beach just lost the civil case and will pay out millions. I'm sure the victim in this case would have rather been arrested for nothing and been able to fight the DA's defending the officer's actions. But, we will never know.

Then, there is the old BWO case that was the trigger to the founding of the CGF. BWO spent months in County jail awaiting trial for his perfectly legal actions.

I fell for a similar hoax a couple of weeks ago at BassPro at RanchoCucamonga. Got there at about 8:45 am - there were about 40 people ahead of me in line. Doors open - everybody rushes upstairs - NO AMMO - hung around for about 90 minutes - bought some fishing gear that I didn't really need. Made a comment to the cashier on the way out...he said 'yeah we all laugh our *****es off at the lines of people waiting for the store to open hoping for ammo'.

I not falling for it again.

Rabid monk that is a single case from 4 years ago.
Csa a shooting no matter how unjustified or justified has nothing to do with whether or not people are being arrested for legal guns.

My point is that it may happen and it is comletely unacceptable if it does, but it is extremely rare.

Considering that I just sold 250 rounds of 9mm to a LEO a week ago, I'd say it's legal.

Gun exchange in san Jose is a joke. Went in to buy a gun. Guy told me the color choice I wanted was illegal in California......I'm guessing he just wanted to sell me the color model he had on the shelf. I drove 15min up the freeway to bay area gun vault and bought the color I wanted brand new. And it was ten bucks cheaper. I hear crap bout that shop all the time. But that is my one and only experience with them

I understand your position, but my point was that accountability for knowledge of the existing laws does not hold evenly for both citizens and law enforcement, nor does punishment for lack of said knowledge. There are a multitude of such cases, but I'm not going to dig them up for a point we both seem to agree upon, at least in principle.

I agree that the shooting should not be compared but, in this case, the victim was shot because he had a legal hose nozzle that kinda sorta resembled a legal firearm to the LEOs who watched him for 8 minutes and then decided to play judge and jury without warning. They did so because he might have had a legal gun in his possession. Apparently, the DA decided to back their poor judgement instead of doing his job. Of course, the BWO case that I also cited is a prime example of exactly what you were looking for. The officers were backed by the DA, BWO spent months in jail, his life was turned uoside down and, only after over $50K in legal fees did the DA finally back down without publicly admitting that the officers involved made a big mistake.

anyone that tells you they're a cop and then gives you "advice" needs to STFU and choke on a twinkie.

what they probably mean is is illegal to sell relaoded ammo that you did yourself. Since they cant regulate the quality so people dont kill them selves with ammo loaded wrong. factory loaded ammo is tested checked and approved. So im sure its ok to sell. At lest thats what i think. Or like what was just mentioned. The liability issue. If you sell reloaded ammo and they blow themselfes up. You owe your house car dog and all your money and your wife to them.. Who knows..

As far as I know, there are plenty of people selling reloads. Most don't do it not because legal issue, but liability issue.

read the sticky titled "Market place rules"

some might be selling their own reloads, but most are selling ammobro's reloads or other legally resellable remanufactured ammo.

http://www.fflanswers.com/ffltypes.html

in order to manufacture and SELL reloads you need a type 6 FFL
