    I live in CA and one of my parental units lives in a non-occupied state. Said parental unit has some amazing firearms that are not on the CA-approved list... I hope to someday inherit these weapons.

    I've heard it is possible to get around the 'approved-list' in CA in situations such as this? Is this true?
    One of the guns is a beauty:

    ...namely, a GI-issued (1917) 1911 .45 with all numbers intact. Would this fall into the C&R status bin, anyhow?

    Thanks,

    -s

    Transfers that are a bequests from an estate are exempt from the FFL transfer requirements in both Federal and California law. However, you can't receive any evil "assault weapons" or magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds. You also have to be legally qualified to possess the firearms and must have the new handgun safety certificate in order to receive handguns.

    Sven: You can't inherit any non CA legal weapons, period.

    Further, even if your parental units lived in CA and owned all of the now banned weapons legally; ie had registered them, you STILL would not be able to inheret them.

    CA has, in effect, banned ALL evil weapons; it just won't come to fruition until the final "legal" owner has passed away.

    Sven,

    I'd suggest you call the DOJ firearms division at 916) 227-3703. Or you sould seach Calif. statues here http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/statute.html and see what you come up with.

    Get a copy of "How to own a gun and stay out of jail" California 2003 edition. It should answer all your questions.
