It is legal for out of state residents to purchase a firearm in your state of residence from a licensed firearm retailer that you intend to give as a gift to your parent or child in California. However, whether you purchase a new firearm or want to gift a gun you already own, keep in mind that California requires you to transfer a firearm through a California licensed firearm retailer. A background check will be performed to make sure the recipient is not legally prohibited from owning the gun. There are limitations, so it’s important to check with the FFL local to the California recipient.
California law requires all ammunition sales in California must be processed by or through a California licensed firearms dealer or licensed ammunition vendor beginning January 1, 2018.
Sales between two non-licensees must be conducted through a licensed vendor (similar to California’s firearm private party transfer requirement).
For purposes of these restrictions “ammunition” refers only to the complete cartridge, not components of ammunition and/or blanks. So, reloading components remain unaffected.
While ammunition may still be purchased over the internet, the transfer to the Buyer must be conducted by a licensed vendor. This means out-of-state sellers of ammunition will be prohibited from sending ammunition directly to non-licensed customers in California.
Buyers ARE liable for sales tax therefore the Buyer must pay the sales tax for the ammunition. Buyer must show the original invoice for the order showing sales tax has been collected, or Sierra Shield will charge sales tax based on current retail pricing. Sierra Shield is not liable for sales tax on your order.
Per law a vendor may charge no more than $5 Transfer Fee if the purchaser of the ammunition is present for immediate delivery of ammunition. But, as the purchaser is never present for immediate delivery off the shipper vehicle, Sierra Shield charges a Storage Fee except for face to face private party transfers.
Sierra Shield charges Fees per the following schedule
1. TRANSFER FEE - $5 per shipment/delivery
2. STORAGE/HANDLING FEE – 10% of vendor invoice total covers up to 29 days beginning date shipment is received.
3. WAREHOUSING FEE – Purchaser will be notified the day shipment is received. In addition to TRANSFER FEE and STORAGE FEE, starting 30 days after customer notification, a Warehousing Fee of $20/day per parcel will accrue ( A shipment of 2 parcels picked up 32 days after notification will accrue a storage fee of $80 (2 days X 2 parcels X $20 = $80).
4. FORFEIT - Shipments not picked up by day 90 after delivery will be considered abandoned and will become the unemcumbered property of Sierra Shield.
5. LOSS/WARRANTY - Sierra Shield is not responsible for loss, theft or damage of the transferred ammunition while in shipment or in our possession. Sierra Shield does not warranty or guarantee the condition or reliability of any ammunition transferred.
