Moving To CA With Firearms
A guy in the NFA Forum posted:
"I've research my options, and so far plan to do the following:
--Highcap mags (over 10rds) - disassembled and coming with me
--HK94, 93, NFA etc. - either storage locally (about $50-100/month) or hopefully at a relative's in my own separate safe, covered in Triple Blox bags with 5yr CLP (free) A place like Scottsdale Gunclub is $35/month per gun, so it's just too much for something worth only $4k like an HK94.
--Handguns - all coming (but buying what I want now)
--Ar15's - thankfully I bought mostly LMT's (offlist), so they get bulletbuttons and come with me (the KAC ones and SBR's are banned and staying, sadly)
--Ak47's - I may bulletbutton these, but the Arsenals are staying and going into storage
--Bolt guns - coming
--Masada, SCAR - will likely never get to own
Despite having a "collection" - I try to view guns as simple tools and view this as an opportunity to reduce some of the extra ones that I own.
You can actually take quite a bit with you (just not have it assembled), and a trip to Frontsite or another nice range for training is a relatively quick trip. There is a risk more items get banned, but that's a risk nationally you face as well."
In his first point "--Highcap mags (over 10rds) - disassembled and coming with me", how can that be? It is my understanding that mags over 10 rds are only legal in CA if you personally owned them in CA before the ban. If you sell them, it needs to be out of state and is illegal to import them even if they were made before the CA ban. If you move to CA you are not "Grandfathered" in. As I recall from the National AWB the mag body was the controlled part. Is that the way it is?
I live in Las Vegas which is only a few miles from the boarder. Is there a link to the regulations? I didn't see it as a sticky. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
