Robo, trying to make sense about CA's gun laws will make you crazy. All you need to know about how CA's gun laws are designed can be summed up in two words: fear and stupidity.

Logic, respect and common sense aren't anywhere in the mix.

So...could I buy one here in AZ, and then do a private party sale/transfer it to a Calif resident?
Not without going to jail.

A private citizen may not sell a handgun except to another resident of his own state, or to a FFL holder in any state. A private citizen may not purchase a handgun other than in his own state- from a private citizen or from a dealer. 18 USC 922- Federal law. You would BOTH be committing an illegal act. No, will not send you a carton of Newports.

You forgot paranoia. Probably a couple of other complexes too.

They probably think the LCP is an all-plastic gun the size of a thimble that only fires cop-killer hollow-points.

I know this isnt on topic but since somebody said cop killer. I just thought it was funny that the guy we call Ice-T had a song called cop killer. But he plays cops in all sorts of tv shows and movies. just another problem with CA. Just saying

You guys are weird. I mostly enjoyed this thread reading what each of you would rather do than live in Cali. As far as I'm concerned, only C3 had the right idea. Living on a beach is much better than sawing your foot off or dragging your bare a$$ through broken glass.........

So, if I buy a handgun and hold it for one year then gift the unfired NGIB to my 30 year old son for Christmas; are we going to jail?

Just asking...

Do you live in the same state? If not, than you've violated federal law.

If you live in the same state, you can gift it to him immediately and be perfectly legal.

Handguns get transferred across state lines only via FFLs.
