I know this has been covered lots before, but where can I find information about moving guns across state lines? It's likely I'll be moving from Florida to California soon. I know that California has its own bunch of terrible laws to deal with once I get it there.

Ah, I guess I read it to quickly and saw the GSG and thought it was that .22LR pseudo-MP9.

edit: ^^^^^ unless you are selling them there are no laws about moving ("normal," Title I) guns across state lines. Unless you own something like a registered sawed off shotgun or machine gun or something there's nothing to it beyond putting the gun in your car or shipping it to the address you'll be at in the other state.

Note: CA has its own poo poo about registering the firearms and such if it's a certain type (pistols I think? I dunno) and you can't import anything that's prohibited by their laws (so no ARs with detachable mags and pistol grips). I don't know those laws that well, so I won't advise you on them.

Is there any way possible that I could talk you out of this? If not Im sorry. But below this is the general explanation on what CA considers an EBW. There are also Specific Weapons that you cannot own this would be your guide http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/forms/pdf/awguide.pdf. As for importing pistols in to the the Glorious Golden State(Yes they do consider a person that is moving in to the state and bringing pistols a Importer) you need to fill out the little .pdf (supplied here http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/ab991.php) and send the report plus $19.00 per pistol reported.But as others have stated calguns is probably your best bet to ask more specific questions.

* 12276.1 (a) Notwithstanding Section 12276, "assault weapon" shall also mean any of the following:
1. A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following:
1. A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon.
2. A thumbhole stock.
3. A folding or telescoping stock.
4. A grenade launcher or flare launcher.
5. A flash suppressor.
6. A forward pistol grip.
2. A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.
3. A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.
4. A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following:
1. A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer.
2. (B) A second handgrip.
3. A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel that allows the bearer to fire the weapon without burning his or her hand, except a slide that encloses the barrel.
4. The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip.
5. A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.
6. A semiautomatic shotgun that has both of the following:
1. A folding or telescoping stock.
2. A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon, thumbhole stock, or vertical handgrip.
7. A semiautomatic shotgun that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine.
8. Any shotgun with a revolving cylinder.
1. "Assault weapon" does not include any antique firearm.
2. The following definitions shall apply under this section:
1. "Magazine" shall mean any ammunition feeding device.
2. "Capacity to accept more than 10 rounds" shall mean capable of accommodating more than 10 rounds, but shall not be construed to include a feeding device that has been permanently altered so that it cannot accommodate more than 10 rounds.
3. "Antique firearm" means any firearm manufactured prior to January 1, 1899.
3. This section shall become operative January 1, 2000.

CZ 858s rock and are really popular in Canada (AKs are prohibited) and myself and a number of other Canuck goons have one.

Nice shooting, easy to clean, reliable, a pretty good aftermarket (with people starting to make new stuff for it) and cheap cheap surplus ammo make it an all-round winner.

I'm sure this is old new to most people here, but I've been reading about the Olfonsen case where the guy's AR15 allegedly malfunctioned and fired an automatic burst. From googling it seems to be a noncriminal error on his part but the logic of the courts is leaving him out to dry. Is that the long and short of the case? I seem to recall reading something on TFR a while ago that made him seem less innocent, but I don't remember what it was. Help me understand the logic of this court case TFR!

Question on a revolver: I just went and filled out the paperwork for the S&W Model 10 .38 Special revolver that I bought from J&G Sales. Since it's apparently a police turn-in, should I go ahead and have a gunsmith look it over before I fire it? From a quick glance / handling, it looks to be in pretty good shape.

If it locks up properly it's probably just fine to shoot. I can't imagine J&G would sell a gun that has an obvious problem without saying anything.

This is a pretty solid guide for checking out your new revolver, if you are really concerned about it.

From what I can recall, he hung himself out to dry when he admitted that he knew that it would bust fire and I believed he bragged about it and said that he wasn't going to get it fixed. Or something to that effect.

Police revolvers are usually the opposite of police cars: horrid exteriors, yet under the hood everything is pristine.

Also, in other news, I just had a deal on a police issue revolver that was issued in '63 and being sold by the original owner fall through. :doom:

The guy was a douchebag who pretty much purposely "broke" his AR in a specific way, and then instructed his buddy that he loaned it to exactly how to get it to "malfunction" whenever he wanted it to.

It's the "no, really doctor, I slipped in the shower and landed EXACTLY on top of that shampoo bottle which is now stuck up my rear end" of the gun world.

Not bad. Nothing at all like the original story, but it wasn't intended to be, it's as though they said, "We'll buy the RED name, and use the idea of a retired, bald CIA dude" and then just did their own thing.

The gun stuff is actually as well done as any recent movie in memory, they change mags, they have a limited number of shots, etc etc.

I got some ammo in a few days ago, and UPS just left it. Actually, I was even home at the time and the driver was gone before I even got to the door. It doesn't bother me because of where I live, but if I lived in an apartment or in the city I might take issue with it.

You've got to know the rules before you can break 'em. Otherwise, it's no fun.

I couldn't get signature required on ammo when I specifically asked for it from Cabellas. This is after someone stole 2200 rounds of .22 off my doorstep. They left the replacement on the doorstep with no signature either.

Joke's on them though, they stole Remington rimfire ammo, good luck with all the duds!

Sort of a weird topic, but I have a friend who is going overseas to Svalbard, Norway for a few months. Residents are required to carry a rifle in certain areas due to polar bears. I would like to lend her my Enfield since really all I do is dick around with it and if it's good enough for Nunavut rangers, it should be good enough for Svalbard.

Is anyone familiar with the process for a) lending someone a rifle b) shipping a rifle overseas c) shipping a rifle overseas to lend to someone? :pwn: If it makes any difference, I'm in California and she's in Washington (state).

I handled a Beretta PX4 for the first time today, and I fell in love with the grip. The one I checked out was the "constant action" version, which is sort of a light DAO akin to SIG's DAK. And since it's at the shop that's going out of business, it's marked down to $475, which is not a phenomenal price (he says it's his dealer cost), but I bet I could talk the owner into throwing in a holster or some ammo.

I sure as hell don't need another gun, but it is a Beretta, and I really like it. And by buying it, I'd be helping the guy out. And he's cool as hell and needs the money.
