Question about the "CA Approved List"
I was looking through the list and notice that most of the approvals expire at various times in 2008, some in 2009. I suppose the approvals are only good for a couple of years before the guns have to be re-tested and certified.
Here's the question. Does anyone know if the guns currently on the list, since they are currently approved, be re-approved after their expirations if they are without magazine disconnects?
I mean, unless most of the manufacturers add this, which it doesn't look like they are interested in doing, there is going to be a drastic drop-off in the number of guns approved for sale in California. I'm talking a HUGE drop-off.
Also, say you have a CCW and currently have approved for carry a gun without a magazine disconnect. When your license comes up for renewal, will the gun now not be approved?
BTW, for those interested, here's a link to the list:
Notice how many expire in 2008. Example: I'm looking at the Kahr PM9093 and 90904. They expire in June and August of 2008. I do not know that Kahr is going to add a mag disconnect to these guns. Without mag disconnects, almost every gun will be illegal for sale within a year or so. This sucks! Essentially this would amount to a defacto abolishment of handguns.
Has anyone heard about the industry as a whole either planning on adding the disconnect, or is the industry more or less just writing off California as a market?
