I know that Ca is a messed up state but trying to figure out some of the laws and wtf were people thinking when they wrote this junk.
I have owned guns since i was a kid but haven't shot much in the last 25 years, but a little while ago i went with a friend to the shooting range, rented couple of guns and just had a fun day.
I decided that it was time for a new gun so ended up wanting to get a Desert Eagle.( they are now made in the USA )
now the silly laws come into play,
What i want to get is a chrome 44 or 50. and from what i can figure out at is that i can buy a new blue 44 but not the 50 or 357. but then you can get a new 50 or 357 barrel and put them on and that is legal. The chrome gun isn't a banned gun you just can't buy a new one. ( if i find one that is already in California that is ok)
The only way i can figure out to get it now is to have a friend buy one in az then transfer it here ( he has a residence in both az and ca) then transfer it to me.
Any other options? It's not like i am trying to get an illegal gun or one that is on the banned list.
