Calguns Foundation Wiki FAQ: Can I BUY A GUN OUTSIDE CALIFORNIA?

Simple answers for simple questions

Discussion: Interstate sales or transfers to California residents

If you do not have any kind of FFL, NO.

Federal law requires interstate transfers to go through a CA FFL for CA residents.

It is illegal for either a FFL or a private person to sell a firearm to someone who does not live in the same state as the seller.

It is illegal for a person to somehow acquire a firearm outside his state of residence and bring it back to his state.

You CAN select a firearm from out of state and have it shipped to a California FFL to complete the transaction.

Geography is not relevant; the current location of the gun does not determine whether the transfer is interstate – the state of residence of the current owner does.
