I am not completely up to date on California law but if I were you I would google CDNN. They give about the best price available on firearms. Write or call and ask if they send to Cali. On top of the guns being priced well, shipping is a flat rate of $10 so after that price you just need a ffl holder to do the transfer. Transfer price is usually around $20 or so. In case you don't know how this works you just get a copy of a gun stores FFl license and when you order the gun you give them this info. They ship the gun overnight to the dealer and then you pay a transfer fee to do the paperwork and have to gun put in your name. Hope this helps! The USP .45 is a great firearm! Good luck and keep us posted!
