The law does not affect what you can own, only what you can buy in a store. You can get an LCP in a Private Party Transfer, no problem. Old guns you have had for years? No problem.

"The Roster" is intended to enhance safety. Gotta have a magazine safety, loaded chamber indicator, etc. But guns that were approved on the previous versions of the list, and kept on the list, remain OK even after the list changes. So, older 1911s are fine, but new models (Ruger, etc) are not.

The list is random, arbitrary, and discriminatory. It is supposed to keep "unsafe" handguns out of the state, but LEOs can buy whatever they want. Once a LEO uses an "unsafe" handgun to shoot someone, the lawsuits against CA will begin. My guess is that "the roster" will not be around forever.

I guess the 6" trigger pull doesn't qualify.

A-freakin'-men! That's the one thing I really don't like about my LCP. That trigger pull is ridiculous.

No, you can't take my gun. I'm gonna need it when you try to take my truck...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the list doesn't exclude, only include. Meaning, the LCP isn't being kept OFF the list because of some characteristic. It is not yet ON the list because Ruger hasn't gone through the process to get it on the list.

Since I don't know if Ruger failed any of the CA tests, I don't know about that side of things. It could be a firearm that WOULD pass, but just hasn't gone through the extortion process, yet.

Who knows why in California?
Putting all that aside for the moment
I can say the Ruger LCP 380 is one
little powerful handgun, which I use
as a backup, but have been carrying
it now as a primary because of the
comfortability of its size.
