State Laws to be aware of: Check State Laws: www.ag.ca.gov/firearms/
*No detachable box magazines may be brought into state with capacity exceeding ten rounds. Unless you owned them prior to Jan1, 2000; then it's OK. All Tubular-magazine 22s are OK.
*“Assault weapons” ban- If you’re registered with CA DOJ already, you’re fine and can shoot your AK, AR15, G3 etc. with no problem. Might want to Xerox the DOJ document and keep it in the rifle case. Do not bring an unregistered “assault weapon” into the state. Do not bring an unregistered “assault weapon” to the range. Similarly, unregistered 50 BMG is not legal.
Out of state shooters, don’t bring military-pattern semiautomatics as they’re almost sure to fall under the “assault weapon” ban. M1 Garand and most 10-shot fixed-magazine SKS' are OK, however.
There is one SKS exception: Zastava SKS Carbines 59/66 are considered destructive devices in California and therefore may not be purchased, possessed, imported, or kept for sale without a permit.
(Having said all that about “assault rifles”, there is provision in state law for out-of-state shooters to bring “assault rifles” to CA shooting events; anybody wants to try that out might want to read the statute for themselves and consult a lawyer-welcome to California.
Transport rifles and pistols unloaded. Pistols and “assault rifles” go in padlocked containers. Car trunk is considered a locked container, but glove compartment, even if it locks, is not OK. (I go the extra mile and padlock everything: firearms in one padlocked container, ammunition in another padlocked container. More th
Ammunition Required: Approximately 400 rounds
50 positions available at 25 meters. Bring your 22s out and gain valuable marksmanship skills and save money. Center Fire ok.
