Just curious because well Im in california...
Bravo. Politically incorrect rant on....You folks need to stop putting communist gun grabbers in office and maybe the Golden State might lose its tarnish. Things have been pathetic in Cali for years and it just seems to get worse as time goes on. Their crazy gun policies are the biggest reason I'll never move back. You'll be lucky if the HK45 gets approved.
So my best friend is a California Correction Officer. Does that qualify as a LEO? So I could do number 1? Also, I live in California and with my girlfriend in Texas. So I could buy it here...and...then what. When I go home...take it home?OK - having personally read all the relevent statutes, here is it.
It is NOT illegal to own or possess a pistol not on the CA approved list. You simply cannot "import it for sale". Two legal ways exist. 1. Of course get a LEO to buy one and then have them conduct a private party transfer to you. (Private transfers are explicitly exempted from the rule 2. Personally buy the gun in another state (assuming you qualify for residency there etc ) then bring it in for personal use. You will have to fill out a "new resident handgun report". Again the fact that your gun is not on the list is immaterial. You are not importing it for sale. However, what remains to be seen in the second instance is what the criteria are for being a"new resident". No details provided in the statute. The form simply asks for your CA address, CA drivers lic. or utility bill etc. and when and where you got the gun and the make model SN etc.
I will be curious if anyone goes this route. Feel free to check in.
if your GF buys it in texas with the knowledge/intent of it for you specifically, technically she is commiting a felony. 1st question is is the gun for you are purchasing for you... she would ahve to move to CA, get an ID or CDL and then transfer it over to you, since she didnt like the HK45 since she bought it for herself and just ended up not liking it... get it?So my best friend is a California Correction Officer.

Or could my GF buy it in Texas. When she moves to CA register it. Then PPT to me? Would that work?
So in summary, if I do #1 or #2, I could own the HK without a magzine disconnect and it not being on the approved list?
You can check it in with your luggage on an airplane with you (not carry on), drive it home, send it UPS... whatever u want.I am trying to do some research on this. I am a California Resident. I live in Texas also with my GF because of work. Can I get a Texas State ID? If so, I can purchase it. How do I get it to California?
Not exactly. If she is a Texas resident, she can buy the gun there. BUT she will have to move to California and declare the guns she brought in and file for residency (typically 6 months). Once she is a resident of California, she can then transfer the guns through a FFL over to you. If she isn't a CA resident, no FFL will do the transfer. PPT will require both CA residents to be present at the FFL at the time of transfer.if your GF buys it in texas with the knowledge/intent of it for you specifically, technically she is commiting a felony.
So let me get this straight... the guns and babes are in Texas and you want to go back to California....for what?I live in Texas also with my GF because of work. Can I get a Texas State ID? If so, I can purchase it. How do I get it to California?
