California’s Narrows List of Legal Handguns
Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” ~ Oscar Wilde
CA, “leading the way,” once more!
CA’s AG maintains a “Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale.” As you might imagine, the list of handguns that may be legally purchased in CA is continuously shrinking!
The state, through its justice department, has functionary established the goal of phasing-out the lawful purchase of all autoloading pistols (regardless of capacity) by citizens, including retired LEOs. No timetable has been officially set, but most believe the list of “decertified” handguns will include all autoloaders by the end of 2019.
Ultimate status of existing handguns in private possession, that have been subsequently dropped from the “List,” is currently unknown, but forced confiscation is a safe bet!
Thus before long, CA residents may be looking to 7/8-shot 38/357 revolvers currently manufactured by S&W and Ruger for home defense, and 5/6-shot revolvers for carrying, such as the Kimber K6, new Colt Cobra, Ruger LCR, and S&W’s 340PD 5-shot snubby
It may be no coincidence that Colt is currently re-introducing its 6-shot Cobra revolver (38Spl), Kimber came out with their excellent K6 revolver (357Mg), and Ruger has recently introduced its eight-shot Redhawk (357Mg)!
Before it is all over, the Supremes may rule, in five years, maybe twenty. In the interim, down here in peon-land, all we can do is prepare and otherwise look after our own best interests, a strategy which may include moving to another state!
