What the :cuss: and to top that off I tried to order some ammo online and they can't ship to my county, top that off with no local hunting stores in town, this state is officially :cuss: remember that you heard it here first......... oh and by the way I am not as crazy as I sound.......... am I?

    You just started to realize that California's gun laws (among other things) are ridiculous?

    I was born there. It changed slowly, but surely. At this point, the place has gone off the deep end.

    I say that with sadness in my heart, but I believe that it is the honest truth.

    He's coming around...;)

    There is no way you could get me to live, or possibly ever be in California again.

    I was there for a year on orders. That's the ONLY reason I would ever live there, and I left my guns at home.

    My husband grew up in California. He left in the early 1970s and never went back. He decided way back then that the state was heading in the wrong direction.

    California may stink now, but it wasn't a sudden change. Its decline has been in the works for a number of years.

    It's a shame. California could be a great place.

    I just turned 21 a in october so I was never really in tune with the magazine and handgun restrictions, I have always just been a duck/deer/turkey hunter but now that I am getting interested in competition shooting and performance rifles and handguns the laws that have been put in place are absolutely insane. I would leave cali in a heatrbeat but now that my dad is getting older I have been put in charge of one side of the family business which means I may never be able to see what a "free" state looks like:banghead: Also how much of a difference is there between the original XD and the new XDM and why has it been made illegal?

    I should probably move to another state where guns are allowed all the time, except of course during times like Katrina.

    No worries I dont think the XDm is all its hyped to be. Ya it stinks you can thave one but I like the plain ole XD a lot better. The XDm just felt way to much like a brick with a really bad handle on it (better than hi-point but no by much). But again Im a wheel gun addict so my opinion probably doesn't count.
    Sorry for you though, at least I have the choice of a XDm and id be really mad if I couldn't get one (a principle thing).

    Handguns sold by a CA FFL dealer need to be on the CA DOJ approved list.

    Handguns not on the approved list are legal to own and sold via Private Party Transfer (PPT).

    The Springfield Armory XDm is not on the CA DOJ approved list because it does not have a CA DOJ approved loaded chamber indicator, magazine disconnect and a 10 round magazine.

    Washington D.C. recently adopted the CA DOJ approved list.
    So, residents of Washington D.C. can only purchase/own/register handguns that are on the CA DOJ approved list.
    A lawsuit has been filed in D.C. "challenging a regulation by District of Columbia city government that arbitrarily bans handguns based on a roster of “acceptable” handguns approved by the State of California." The Calguns Foundation is assisting/supporting this lawsuit because if it is found unconsitutional in Washington D.C. it will effect CA as well.

    Goto the forums calguns.net to learn more.

    That's advice you won't regret following. GET OUT of The Peoples Republic of Kalifornistan while you still can! It's not going to get better there only worse. Be warned though, the Bovine Scatology that is Kalifornian legislation has been known to spread so choose your new homestead carefully.

    My dad is actually giving me an XDm as a gift thereby circumventing California's uber ridiculous laws. I don't know if your parents are still around but a parent or grandparent is allowed to give a child or grandchild a handgun that is not on CA DOJ list of handguns. To clarify I'm not advocating intentionally breaking California's laws, i'm only saying there are ways to make handungs not on CA's list to be exempt.

    The hell you say!!!

    Do you mean to say that an Eastern European made weapon is not welcome in the People's Republic of **********? What will our comrades in arms do on the left coast?

    What is meant by that statement?

    That's exactly when they are needed the most!

    Unless you are the type to depend on the government to keep you safe, feed you, supply you with potable water, etc. A nanny state is not what I want. If it comes to that, there won't be a state that guns are allowed all the time.

    jakemccoy was referring to the police taking the handguns of all citizens of New Orleans during Katrina. It was illegal seizure that took the courts to undo. The police had to give people their guns back.

    On the contrary, having to keep a business in the black is one of the top reasons people DO leave California these days.

    That's one of the reasons I say it has gone "off the deep end." Where will the next growth spurt come from, in a state that is rated the worst to do business in?

    It wasn't always that way. Now there are too many people who have done their best to kill the golden-egg-laying goose. I'm not too happy about it: we have property there. Where will our next tenants come from, if there are no jobs?

    damning with faint praise

    At least it doesn't (yet) require a permit to purchase or possess.

    need help

    first of all this is a great site. have been doing my homework for the past few days and the info here is the best. i read in previous posts that if a mom etc. had a xdm and then private party transferred it to (me) in cali it would be legal. but im confused on how this is still legal due to the mags being over 10 rounds. i have looked everywhere for some 10 rounders with no luck. any help/ideas would be appreciated.

    The Peoples Republic of California. I actually told my company I would not move there, period. I love my guns and freedom to much!

    You can get the pistol but not the magazines.
    Springfield Armory is currently not offering 10 round magazines for the XDm series.
    So, your mom can dissassemble the magazines and send you the parts. You then take the parts and make a permanent 10 round magazine.
    Or, you just own the pistol and no magazines.

    Go and join the forums at calguns.net for more information about intra-familial transfers.

    So, let's say you manage to acquire one in the state -- how will you shoot it? ....as I understand there are no 10 round mags available for it :scrutiny:
