Buying a gun off the "Approved List"?
First off, I am not looking for a way to "illegally" purchase a weapon. I'm just unclear on the law and was wondering if it is legal to buy a gun from an out-of-state dealer that is not on the approved list.
I realize that a California FFL can only sell guns that are on the approved list. Got it. What I was wondering is can my local California FFL receive and do the paperwork on a gun purchased from an out-of-state dealer if the gun in question is not on the approved list? I'm not talking about anything exotic, but for example, there are zero Keltec's on the CA. Approved List.
The answer is probably no, but I'm just not clear from what I've read of the statutes. I would assume that if the answer is indeed no that someone here would have encountered it. I'm not sure that everyone that has purchased a firearm over the internet would have thought to check the approved list in advance. That would be a bummer when your dealer tells you your package has arrived, you go down there all excited, then he opens the box and says "Sorry, pal, this guns not on the list and I've got to ship it back".
Anyone encounter this or can otherwise shed some light?
