Yes, Just bring your ammo. Calguns is the place for all your CA gun questions. Because here you'll just get a lot of CA bashing.

Btw, this San Diego November day it's very warm & sunny. Saw a LOT of beautiful women in Mission Beach this morning. We have more here than in any state.

And you out-of-staters cannot make that claim. Because we ALSO grow pretty women here just like other states do..........................but................... When a woman in Indiana, New Mexico, or what not happens to really REALLY hot, people don't tell her to move to Lansing. Or Akron.

They say "you gotta go to California to be a model/actress/singer"

And they do just that. So we have our home-grown hotties and get a ton of yours too.

Only London, NY, & Paris can somewhat complete with California (LA in particular) as a babe-magnet.

Hey, I'm happily married, but I do enjoy a nice view.

Met my wife right here in SD. She's 51. Here she is in a pic from 2 years ago.

The women here tend to stay in shape.

Found a real downside to moving to Northern California. Just came from Costco. Had a berry smoothie and the gave me a skinny paper straw. Didn't even make it out of the store before the straw collapsed on me. Oh the humanity.

When I read all of the disparaging comments about California I have to chuckle. Yes the politics suck
But it is absolutely the most diverse and gorgeous state in the lower 48. 8 National parks tied with Alaska for the most. The Highest Mt Whitney and lowest point Death Valley. The Coastal and Sequoia Redwoods. 840 miles of coast line stretching from Oregon to Baja. You can be snow skiing in the morning and water skiing in the afternoon. I live a few minutes from Yosemite and our current temperature is 72į. Yes we had forest fires the last few years and my heart goes out to those who lost their homes and loved ones
The same as my heart goes out to those who lost homes in recent Huricanes and tornadoes. Every state has it's good and bad points. As far as gun laws go. They are an absolute pain in the keester. But compliance regarding magazine capacity turning in AR.s not purchasing ammo from across state lines and bringing it into Ca. Is pretty small. I was at the Hogue Action Pistol range recently were a fellow took his AR from his car with drum magazine attached and proceeded to blaze away. Folks here act as if there are DOJ agents behind every rock. Just isn't the case. There are areas of the country where the Sherriff has stated publicly that their county is a sanctuary county. There are other areas where the Sherriff applies the law when it is applicable. As others have stated in response to the OPs question regarding ammo. Pack it away and bring it in. As far as the threaded bbl. I would cap it and only take the gun to the range after I was comfortable that secret agents weren't present checking to see if guns were in compliance.

The area itself wasnít bad. The climate was great, the location is great, but I really couldnít tolerate the people in general. Dana point had far too many liberal morons trying to tell me how to live. That level of pussification made my head explode. Lol

You mean online? Because people don't tell ME how to live when I'm out & about.

On that, I have one hardcore Vegan friend. She's All-In as far as that goes. She owns two vegan joints, one's a smoothie bar & the other is a restaurant.

So she was at my housewarming party the Sat before last. She brought a vegan hummus type dip & some mystery chips. Probably made from kelp & quinoa or whatever. I gave it a go and............. yuck! I gagged and quickly washed it down with a half can of Coke.

She just laughed and said I was way too redneck to appreciate healthy food. She's damn right! Took a pile of hot wings to kill the taste of that hippie stuff.

Point is, she thought it was funny. There isn't any uptightness in her at all.

PS, Thanks. gumbee.

Life long CA guy...60 years. NorCal Bay Area and up in Plumas Co.

If you are a few hours north of Bay Area...it is an entirely different world...

Your location in NorCal that you are considering will make a huge difference...farther north tends to get more conservative...

CalGuns, as mentioned, is a great group to join. They can be a bit rough at times...but there are several forums there that the mods are incredibly knowledgeable on...

On the law thingy, do your homework...the laws are not just screwy, they are intentionally written to be vague and confusing...all to circumvent 2A much of the time.

Good luck OP...
PM me with the location and I would be glad to share some thoughts...

My daughter moved to LA. Pays $400 a month for car insurance. For a VW Golf. It was $60 here in WI.

That entire state is an epic example is mismanagement.

I used to live there a s would never live there again. It’s not even a nice place to visit. Traffic, homeless, crime, filthy air...

I get dragged out there for work to deal with all the water mismanagement problems.

Do people actually worry about this stuff??? This falls into the category of SSS. Shoot, Shovel and Shut up.
OP was inquiring on what the laws were. Obviously breaking the law is always an option if one chose/chooses to do so. But thank you for stating the obvious...on a public forum.

DavT, you post has struck a nerve. Forgive the long epistle, but after 39 years of living in northern California, Walnut Creek near San Francisco to be specific, and raising a family, pursuing a succesful international career and enjoying the natural beauty and outdoor activities offered by the area, and having witnessed the profound changes that have occurred there ( as well as in most of our country) my most earnest, and sincere advice to anyone contemplating relocating to that part of the country is .........DON'T. Simply forget about California. Moving to California these days would be tantamount to booking passage on the Titanic after you've been informed that it hit the iceberg, and it wouldn't matter if you booked first class or steerage, that ship is going down. What I mean by that is that wherever in Calif. you choose to set up shop, it's still California and the same itchy blanket of insane politics, incomprehensible laws, prepostrous costs and un acceptable quality of life issues envelop the entire state.

Obsessing over minutae, such as empty brass,bringing in and / or purchasing ammo or threaded barrels is a total and utter waste of time & is all little more than worrying about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. It simply doesn't matter because whatever the laws are today, you can be most certain that things are only going to get worse and become more and more restrictive, and that Californians will only loose more and more of their rights and have to pay more and more for the 'privilege' of living in that cesspool, and that their fanatical responses to every new mass shooting will only tighten gun-control regulations even further. To my eyes, the obvious and much greater problem is that the all-pervasive, wildly liberal, party-dominated political attitude there is so strong, unchallenged and ingrained that any normal, responsible, logical (and desperately needed) ideas that might actually contribute measurable improvement to the quality of life and be of benefit to the citizens of California are always dead on arrival, never are even discussed in depth and just don't ever make it to a vote in the state legislature, which itself is increasingly under the relentless control of the most irresponsible, partisan, extreme left-wing 'progressives'.

Only you can decide if the situation you're offered is attractive enough on all levels that may be important to you to make the move worthwhile, but allow me to suggest that if you choose to relocate in California it will come at great cost to your happiness, contentment, confidence and most importantly, your ability to raise your family according to your hopes and values. Also bear in mind that any finacial advantages your new position offers, these will be quickly eaten up by the ridiculously bloated cost of living in the "Golden State". 9 to 10% sales taxes, the highest tax on gasoline in the nation, state income taxes, city taxes, an unsustainable 'homeless' situation, you might take the time and read about and educate yourself about Proposition #47, housing costs that defy logic and reason, the illegal alien problems, a public education system that is an embarrassment ..........all these factors have made living in modern California an absolutly toxic mix of hopelessness, frustration and anger.

Personally, in retrospect I am convinced I waited entirely too long to sever all ties to that socialist insane asylum, but I'm glad I finally woke up and got my family the Hell out of there. I've never been happier, now that I'm no longer in California.

Whoís law?? Since Cal decides they can just make crap up that goes against Federal law........yeah, no one here has that kind of money to fight it, but whatís the fine for an unknowing person moving there? Iíd say itís worth it to stick it to them.

English is also spoken by nearly everyone you will have contact with IN MEXICO! Cab drivers, cops, hotel & restaurant staff, etc.

To imagine that communication here is some kind of daily, or even monthly, problem is like thinking that alligators are a daily problem in Miami.

Now concerning cops on the borders between CA and neighboring states:

There are agricultural checkpoints where they ASK (not search) if you have any fruit or veggies in your car. This is to prevent pests that create huge problems in our farm industry that feeds a lot of you guys who live outta state.

Funny thing to do is to look at the other cars waiting in line, to watch all the folks hurriedly speed-eating apples & bananas
Oh címon man, thatís not at all accurate. Perhaps at the places you frequent, but not in the bowels of the community. As 4110mm mentioned earlier, he did the research of the public schools before he made a move. Dismal English rate. The company I work for owns 12 hotels. Not a darn one of the housekeepers speak English. For that matter, many of the businesses that have factory jobs are full of non English speaking folks. It would be an amazing thing if SD was 90% English speaking. Iím not complaining about it, but I think your numbers are waaay off, especially if you spend most of your time amongst the professional crowd.

I buy & sell old cars. This involves meeting all kinds of buyers & sellers, dealing with junkyards, and mechanical, paint, & upholstery guys. A huge segment of these cats are Mexican.

I drive the seedier parts of town looking for dead cars in yards, garages & driveways. Then I knock the door & try to make a purchase.

As a landlord I deal with Hispanic applicants, tenants, and tradesmen.

Almost everyone speaks English. At least enough to conduct the business at hand & some related small talk.

Way better than most of the folks working call centers in India.

Many of the cream-of-the-crop, very most gorgeous of your corn-fed farm girls will move to California to pursue their careers in acting/modeling/music video work.

Because this is one of the world epicenters of those industries.

Nobody moves to Ohio to become a movie star!

So yeah, we have our own homegrown hotties AND get a large portion of every other state's (and countries!) beauties too!

Are you claiming that Akron has the worldwide lure of Hollywood?

There are plenty of corn fed cowgirls out here.

Quote:
Top Producing Counties Ė California produces 19 percent of the nation's sweet corn, ranking number two in the U.S. In 2015, California harvested 60,000 acres of corn for grain, valued at $33 million. The same year, the state harvested 365,000 acres of corn for silage.
https://learnaboutag.org/resources/fact/corn.pdf

I know the Gillespie sisters in Shasta Co. Each one over 240 pds. Each one can take an ear of corn, stick it in their mouths for a second or two, take it out, and not a kernel of corn on that cob. Their mother can do the same but with her dentures out.

So come and see fellas. In a little bit you won't worry about the threads on the end of a barrel.

If you're ever in calif in the fall there are a lot of places that'll knock your eyes out for beauty.
Get away from the arm pits of the state & it's a whole different place.

There are places here I don't want to go to again also. There are good & bad in every state.
