About all you can do is move.
Hey guys, I spent the last few days researching on pocket pistols and had decided pretty much to get a kel tec...until today I found that they are not legal in CA, argh! Any Californians on here share their thoughts on good CA legal pocket pistols? Thanks.
Ohhhhh. Ok. That makes a little sense now.
With no external safety I guess that'd outlaw most if not all snubbies right?
I hear that they cause "lead poisoning" too I
No, they are legal in California because the safety is the trigger safety on the glocks and the trigger safety + grip safety on the XDs. It doesn't have to be an old school safety, just some sort of safety from what I understand. Every gun store in CA sells a ton of glocks and XDs (purchased one last week) so they are definitely legal.
I just bought a very nice SP101, no safety. I am surprised I can buy ANY handgun in this messed up State.
Not really impressed with my P3-AT. I guess a Kahr would also be out of the question. I do like my P40.
Do like Tommy Lee Jones says,"get yourself a Glock, and get rid of that nickle plated sissy pistol."
I'd like to see a list of five good pocket pistols that are California legal. I don't want to spend time bashing California, it's a great State and other than the limited selection of guns to purchase, I love the State. I can wait ten days to pick up a weapon, I just wish I had more choices. I'm certainly not going to move so I can buy a Ruger LCP.
Everyone is missing the biggest reason why a some handguns cannot be sold in KA. Manufacturers decline to submit a handgun for testing. If you want to sell it in KA, you must submit several samples of each model for testing. XD's are legal for sale, XDM's are not. All Glocks are legal, as are most Sigs. External safties are not an issue, internal safties are. Alot of manufacturers have just written off KA. I can't say I blame them.
We spell California with a "C". I sometimes think that people are jealous of California and all it's natural beauty. If these gun manufacturers want to write California off, that's their business. I wish it didn't have to be that way, but I can roll with it. I can only buy so many guns anyway.
