I will however be there this week for vacation.
Enjoy your vacation. Im going with the P229 for now but I might get a gen 4 glock 19 later.

It is code for "move to a different State". The State Legislature, run by SoCal idiots does not want you to live there anyway, just accomodate them

As said before single shot exemption requires the gun to be made to receive one round at a time. Shops that do single shot deals will generally revert it back as long as you cross the threshold of the the store. At that point the deal is considered to be done and the shop is no longer responsible for the firearm and its your gun so you turn around and have them revert it back to full function. You will find shops that will not deal with this because they believe it is a gray area of legality and feel they will receive extra scrutiny from the DOJ if word gets around that they do this practice. Even some of the shops that do it like to keep it somewhat low key because you never know who is standing next to you in the shop. It's just one more of the Bay Area wusses trying to make things "safer" for everyone by not having those dangerous guns that fire without magazines all on there own.

California's gun laws may suck but the weather's great and the booze and cigarettes are cheap. At least compared to Washington. I just got in to temecula yesterday and I never want to leave.

a friend of mine has done this a couple times already,the only thing we are not sure of is getting caught with the gun after converting it back.

Yes that's the question ..but I'm not going to carry a pistol,I'd have one for home defense and range,if I find a gen 4 glock 19 I'm probably gonna do it.

I might be dumb but I think I'm still missing what exactly it means.

Only load one round at a time? Does that mean only one round in the chamber at a time? Cuz I thought that's generally how it worked period.

Does it mean a one round limit in the magazine? I could actually see Kalifornia doing that.

I just... really don't get it. Single shot exemption...
