Yeah, I walked into a store for information on what I needed to know, they stuck a test in my hand and I passed... Hadn't touched a firearm in over 25 years. I can pick it up on the 12th lol. So much for information gathering.

All this is funny, and it's not. It has gotten to the point where gun owners need an attorney on retainer in California. Yes, handgun with current hsc, if you are taller then 4ft 4, and no taller than 6ft 8 inches, You weigh in at 110 lbs, but but no more than 315lbs. Vision must be 20 20 or corrected, unless it's greater than 20 40. Purchase must be completed on a day that the temperature did not exceed 100 degrees (hot days known to cause anger). Purchase cannot be completed <24hrs prior to a full moon, or after a full moon. Purchased weapon must have a minimum trigger pull of 6lbs, but no greater than 10lbs. Purchaser cannot have a domestic violence 6 months prior to purchase, exemption for this includes, elected public officials, celebrities and current NFL players.

Can an FFL charge more than $25 for the test and card?

Bad question.

The question should be is it legal for a FSC instructor to charge more than $25 for the test and card, to which the answer is no.

Your question the answer is obviously yes because people violate the law.

See the CA PC. You can also call the CA DOJ. I don't have time right now to look up the law for you, unless you want to hire me to do so.

CA PC 31650 says the fee is $25
http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/fa...ctionNum=31650.

Is there a criminal penalty for violation? I am not sure. But repeated violations would probably result in certification being revoked, and open oneself up to civil proceedings by those aggrieved, perhaps even a class action. Sounds like fun, amiright?

I know little about CA gun laws, being mainly a Nevada resident and I only missed one question on my CA Safety Certificate. The one I missed was could I sell a gun I owned direct to a brother without the FFL. I assumed CA would be much like Q1 here in NV, but I should have known that's not the case, as CA gun laws are ridiculous, IMO.

Right now, I am one of the few people who can legally buy guns in two states. CA & NV. I have an old NV Driver's license (and NV CCW) and a new CA Real ID, so neither are marked as "federal restrictions apply". I recently purchased a new Kimber .45 ACP Stainless 2 at Bass Pro Shops in Rocklin, CA to keep at my house in Auburn, CA.

I will probably buy a few more CA guns to keep in CA.

Most of the guns I own here in Reno are illegal in CA, or at least cannot be purchased new in CA. I own many scary looking rifles, such as my PS90, AR57 with the 50 round magazines. And my FN FiveseveN with 30 round mags. And a Calico 9MM with 100 round magazines. And my Zero Round magazine 9MM Freedom Ordnance pistol.

If it's legal in CA, I don't want it here in NV!

I'm a little behind the times, since my HSC expired more than a decade ago, and I do not need one at present.

Someone I know has decided to buy a handgun. They completed a hunter's safety course and have the certificate from that. Down here in SoCal/OC, there is a chain which used to do the HSC-- I assume they may still do that-- but where should my friend go to get the new FSC?

I looked on the AG's site, but it's not like they have a list of approved providers like with LiveScan. Clue a fellow shooter in?

Most gun stores will give the test. See https://oag.ca.gov/firearms/fscinfo

By repute, some stores are biased toward giving the test to buyers, which should not be a problem in the situation you describe.

The Hunting license exemption is only valid for long guns, not handguns. For long guns, they would need a hunting license, not just have taken the safety course.

Any dealer should be able to issue the test and the FSC. All dealers have to have a FSC instructor since it is required to do the FSC safety demo unless the person is exempt and most people are not exempt.

The cost total is $25, $15 to the state and $10 to the dealer.

Appreciate the clarification, because-- what a shocker-- when you read the AG's page, it is about as clear as mud. I'm sure that is not an accident.

I figured the hunter safety course certificate would not be of use, no harm in erring on the side of caution and having it handy, but I was wrong.

I've known the guy who'll buy the gun for a while. He resisted a number of invitations to come shooting over the years, finally came with me to the range recently, and is now buying a handgun for home defensive use.

Thanks for the quick replies

Hey

To DOJ instructors or anyone in the know

I have an FSC that has a typo in my name and I was wondering if I have to go and get a new FSC to fix that type or can I go back to the DOJ instructor to get the error fixed?

Thanks!
