Buying a used Ruger LCP .380 ACP; not on approved list..........
I'm sure this topic has been beaten to death, but I couldn't find any previous discussions and I promise to keep it short.
I want to buy a Ruger LCP .380, but it’s not on the CA DOJ approved list and according to Ruger, it never will be. My sources tell me that although one can’t buy a NEW Ruger from an FFL, it’s legal to do a PPT of a used one in CA. Can anyone verify this?
I looked at a Beretta Bobcat, but that’s not on their list. I then focused on the Ruger, but that’s not on Big Brother’s list either. I may have found a used one and don’t want to commit until I’m sure I can follow-through with the transfer. Apparently the Ruger is only available to LEO’s or military (?) in CA; the rest of us must choose from what’s so graciously been offered to us by the DOJ. Does anyone have any thoughts on the legal issues of the transfer? :confused:
