So I am being PCS'd to Commiefornia!

Yeah their gun laws read like a bad novel. Can anyone break it down what I can take with and can't in Texan terms? I guess I will have to get a Cali CHL?

LOL! Good luck!

err... I mean, sorry about your bad luck

On top of the fact that they just don't approve a whole lot of them, on the application there is an essay portion. You have to give "good cause" for your request... apparently self defense is just not enough.

Do the research into any areas that really concern your particular situation, but for me, I've been here for about 3 years. I came from Abilene and this was the absolute last place in the world I wanted to be stationed at because of their politics and their gun laws.

The biggest areas for them out here are removable magazines and magazine capacity. Any thing over 10 rounds here (handguns included) is a no-go. I had to buy new mags for XD when I got here. They also hate removable magazines for your Assault Weapon type guns to include SKS's. I was doing the research to see about bringing out my SKS when I moved and I believe that would have been ok, as long as it was pretty much original.

You can also get AR & possibly AK's here as long as they have the "bullet button magazines" on them depending on which lower you went with.

Some of these areas might have changed, so don't quote me on it. Do some research before you get here and you should get ok. When I get the need to buy some toys, I just go back home to Tx.
