Hi all,
First time poster long time reader. (2 weeks now)
I've been on the market for a new gun for about a year now. After going back and forth between a Bushmaster Carbon 15 and another brand I nearly gave up. Finding a good multi use rifle is hard in California...yes I'm from Cali but please don't hate me. I have Nevada in my heart.

...long story short, after browsing youtube for Spikes tactical video I found Variablebinary's video and I was reeled in. The search began...but ended with very negative results. None of my local dealers will help me out with a FFL transfer. Mainly in fear of flack from the gov.

So for now I'm doing more research and trying to hold on to my funds. Just wanted to say hello and thanks for all the great info here with out all the drama of other sites.

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear you are from Kalifornia.... I used to live outside Riverside. F* that, I moved to Alabama where Guns is not a cuss word. Hope you come to your senses and move..... :2cents:

There is a lot of good info here, good luck finding a dealer that order you one, if you cant send Aussie Arms a PM and he can probably help you I got my XCR from him and he took good care of me and is a great guy to work with.

You have some good options for getting an XCR shipped to cali:

Chris At Lanworldinc

Metroshot

Robarms Direct

I'm glad you liked the video. It was fun making it.

Post pics once you join the family. We love our Cali cousins just fine :p

Thanks for the welcome. That video is great VB.

Well I visited another gun store.I brought my LE buddy of mine to his store and they are also not willing to take my money. He said they will not touch anything with a bullet tool.

He did say he would be willing to transfer just a stripped down receiver and I would have to build it from there. Very frustrating at this point.

I know, Kali does sucks but I've been here all my life and its what I have to deal with. At least I moved out of San Francisco.

Is there a thread here with transfer information and guidelines details? Not too sure how it works as far as moving between states. I've been the buy over the counter guy so far and I am green in that sense.

Thanks again...my quest continues.

Man I feel bad for you. You guys in cali get hosed worse than us Canadians. I would have no problem in Canada getting someone to sell me a XCR or AR or anything provided I carried the appropriate license. In fact most rifles including the XCR I could walk in to a gun shop and walk out in 15 mins with the XCR in my hands. Rifles like the AR15 and handguns though would take 2 days to get.

thanks Mr Smitty, that makes me feel sooo much better! j/k


UPDATE!!! I finally found a (local) dealer today that will work with me. I knew of them from the past but I thought they were closed down. Just happened upon the name here last night.

So, I will be making a call soon...and to think I was going to drive to Lan world.
