    With an intrafamiliar(?) hand gun transfer through cal doj you can have a registered handgun at 18 yrs old.

    Correct! as long as its being transfered from immediate family you are in the clear. Use the REPORT OF OPERATION OF LAW OR
    INTRA-FAMILIAL HANDGUN TRANSACTION form.

    I believe it is immediate family up or down, i.e. Parent to Child, Grandparent to Child, Child to Parent, Child to Grandparent.

    I don't think itcovers Sibling to Sibling however.

    Thank you for the info. If I do this transfer will my parent be responsible for the gun still or would I assume full responsibility?



    By the way. Whens the next SoCal meet?

    The last part.

    For instance, if I were to offer you a Glock or a Sig and you like Sigs, you would prefer the latter choice to the former.

    In saying "the latter" I was mentioning that yes, you will assume full responsibility for the firearm. It is in your name at that point.

    18 to own, 21 to purchase from a dealer.

    They don't issue a firearm to you? I would check into that thoroughly.

    Not through academy. When I am a sworn officer I will be issued 2 and can legally carry it loaded. I want to roll with you guys so I will keep them empty. Now, Where would you recomend buying inexpensive guns... JUST to last me until academy is over. 6 months.

    Calguns.net. Check the for sale area.

    Get a gun you will actually like though, there is no sense in buying a crappy gun for a few months. Besides, you just get issued a Beretta 92 or some crap like that.

    You say that now, but wait until you go to find ammo for it.

    Would a 9mm be better for me?

    You must weigh the pros and cons for yourself. Go to a range and rent out a few handguns to see what you like and make a decision from there.

    My personal favorites are as follows (no order, except the Hi Power is NUMBER 1, BABY!):

    Hi-Power
    FNP-9/40
    CZ-75
    Glocks
    S&W M&P

    I bought a S&W .40 Cal on the recomendation of the gun dealer. He said a .40 cal has 50% more knock down power than a 9mm. But what ever you are comfortable with.

    I have and recommend the glock 22. It's a .40 cal which gives you way more stopping power than a 9mm and it is easier to control than a .45 so your follow up shots will be more accurate. Another advantage for you is that lots of PDs use glock, so it won't be unfimiliar to you.

    If you have a good idea which agency you want to work for, find out what they issue and buy that.



    You can always buy what you really want later, but best to practice with what you will be carrying on the job.

    Here in CA, I recommend the largest caliber you're comfortable with, due to magazine capacity restrictions.

    I'd rather carry a 9mm with 16 rounds, than a .45 with 8, but since 10 rounds is our maximum in this state, might as well make them count. That was the intent of the law, right, to insure larger caliber handguns on the street?
