    I didn't check the o p date, but my reply still applies.
    Pack your bags, pack your guns, head for the border son.

    old thread resurrection, i hope.
    ;)


    live in ca.
    brother recently passed away.
    inherited his gun/rifle collection.
    about 20 firearms. finally identified them all with help at this forum.
    variety of antiques, black powder, WWI-II carbines, and many modern handguns.
    (not to mention a collection of daggers/knives/swords/bayonettes)

    loved the one guy's earlier response in this thread "guns, what guns ?"
    still laughing.
    but probably good advice, considering CA's apparently ridiculous gun laws.

    will try let you all know how it goes with the legal stuff/registration/etc.
    (unless i decide to just "hide" them, lol)
    any CURRENT advice from those that know would be greatly appreciated.
    otherwise i'm likely off the the local FFL/Gunshop to get edumacated.

    That would be quite expensive going through a dealer with 20. If it were me I'd use the money for ammo, but if you insist on registering them you might consider registering them yourself. Go online and print out the docs you need. Fill them out and send the 20 bucks I think it is to the DOJ. You may have to do this 1 or 2 at a time or whatever, I don't know how all that works. There is a limmit on how many can be purchased over given periods of time. It's complicated here, the cops don't even know half the gun laws.
    Welcome to the forum krig.

    My post above should answer your question. It's on page 42 and on.
