    FNP-45 California Legal?

    Hey Everybody,

    I'm new to the forum, and am considering purchasing an FNP-45. However my FFL dealer said that they aren't legal in CA. I checked the list of approved handguns, and while the FNP-9 and the FNP-40 are on there, the .45 is not.

    Does anyone know if there is a way for me to purchase this firearm in my state, or why it might be illegal?

    Thanks for the help.

    - Cyrus

    It's not legal there. Not sure why (I think there was a cut off date for approval of pistols or something. Can't remember right off hand).

    Didn't Cali approve a microstamp thing on all new pistols sold there (starts when???)?

    The .45 isn't "illegal" in California, it's just not on the approved roster. California FFL dealer's are only allowed to sell "civilians" models listed on the roster at the date of sale. They can sell off roster models to LEOs.

    People may legally keep handgun models that fall off the roster. Someone moving to California may bring their legally owned "off roster" handguns with them.

    Private Party Transfers aren't subject to the roster, so if you can find someone in CA with a legally owned FNP-45 you could perform a PPT at a CA FFL dealer. Both parties must be California residents, otherwise it's a state to state sale.

    Sales from outside CA have to be sold through a CA FFL per federal law and roster applies.

    Hope that helps...

    Please don't give them any ideas. I really don't want to go to a public hearing to explain how 10 rounds isn't "high capacity" for guns that normally come with a 16 to 30 round magazine.
