I'm looking a possible forced move to California with a new job I'm interviewing for. Can someone familiar with gun regulations there help me out on what I can and can't take with me?
BTW, Googling just makes it even more confusing... stale info, vague and complex legal-eze, etc... Any help would be appreciated.
AR-15 - Pretty sure this one has to go. Purchased new in 2000 (post-ban). It's a Colt Match Target Comp in pristine condition, so I really don't want to monkey it up, nor have to push limits proving legality even if there are things I could do to make it Cali Legal. Will either sell it or store with my brother back here in Georgia.
Mini-14 - This one I'm a little confused on. It's a stock Ranch model... don't know if anything on it other than hi-caps are a problem (no flash hider), but I don't really understand if I have to make the mag non-detachable. And, if so, am I likely to get hassled over it? Better to let it go or take it along? If it's okay with replaceable 10's can I still own hi-caps and just not use them?
1911's & Colt Mustang semi's - Any problems here? Drop-free mags matter?
Others - I don't think there's any problem with others... mostly 22's including a few lever rifles, a Ruger Mk1, a Colt Jr & a couple of NAA minis... plus one old 25 auto Baretta 418 pocket gun.
Mags - Have some stock of pre-ban hi-caps. Many are for guns I no longer own, other than those for the AR and Mini-14. Should I sell these before I move?
Airsoft - I know this one sounds silly, but my son and I both have some pretty nice AR type airsoft guns. Would hate to get in trouble over them. Any problems there?
