The correct answer is I shouldn't wait. My CCW permit should exempt me from any waiting period. A few other states have waiting periods too, but those states are smarter than California.
I'll do a review when I get it in hand.
Congrats on your purchase! We'll need pics and a range report when you can, of course.
I agree about the waiting period thing. Here's my thoughts on it:
- If you have already purchased a firearm in CA, no waiting period at all.
- If this is your first firearm purchased in CA, if they really want a waiting period 2 days is more than enough.
- I'm not sure how I feel about exempting CCW holders. Looking at it from the enemy's point if view, I know they will say even CCW holders can "snap" and go and do thins in a rage.
- I'm done. I could go on and on about how much I hate this state's laws, but I'm tired and it'll put me in a bad mood.
