    My Glock brothers,

    I am moving from Indy (pro-guns) to San Francisco (???) and would like to know if anybody could tell me if I need to sell my glock handguns and Remi shotguns due to legal issues. Indy is very open about carrying and whatnot, but I dont know much about cali. I dont expect to be able to carry out there, but what about ownership? Can I keep them in my house?

    Thanks,

    MDLP

    handguns and shotguns are not a problem, no magazine over ten rounds. No Semiauto rifles that look evil. Here is a link to the DOJ website.

    WTF? You can own handguns in San Francisco? Are you sure? I thought it was anti-gun capital?

    They already tried that and it was ruled unconstitutional.

    Not only can you own handguns in SF, there is actually one dealer in the City (Highbridge-great folks)!

    the NRA was able to stop the ban from taking place even thought the idiots, I mean voters passed it, being in conflict with the State laws (the same thing that defeated it the last time they tried).

    Thanks NRA!

    I live in the central valley and have only been to SF twice, once as a teen and once for a cruise. I took my G19 with me and carried concealed on the warf and other tourist areas. I didn't have a problem. If you keep it covered you should be ok. I wouldn't hold my breath if you want to get a ccw in SF. You would have to move to the valley and apply for one there. Pretty place to visit, but quite looney in their thinking.

    Ok so let me understand, if I live in a suburb of San Fran or whatever I'll unlikely be able to carry in the city, BUT if i live out away from San Fran I can get a ccw and then carry in the city? Or did u just carry illegally? I'm pretty sure ccw in the city is off limits right?

    San Fran is VERY VERY liberal as I understand. liberals are generally very squeamish and afraid of everything so I can see their misunderstanding with firearms. I too was afraid of glocks and such until i learned how to fire and handle one. They're good people in San Fran, just different...

    If you plan to carry just keep your mouth shut about it, even if by some chance you do get a CCW. The fruits there will ostracize you faster then a straight man in a lesbian bar.

    Don't get caught carrying illegally as they will make an example out of you.

    It is highly unlikely that you will be able to get a CCW permit anywhere around San Francisco--unless you are rich. famous or politically connected!

    Many of the Ga....excuse me, Bay Area cities and counties are very anti-gun and you'll have a better chance of getting hit by a "blue ice" dropped from a Quantas Airlines 747 while standing at the exact middle of the Golden Gate bridge than getting a CCW!

    For those of us who have a CCW permit here in CA., we can carry in any city/county jurisdiction, but I've been told that many of SFPD officers are anti-gun and will cause all kinds of hell and will confiscate your gun on the spot if we're caught "in their city".

    You don't have to sell your guns, but you should be prepared to forfeit your ability so speak freely on conservative subjects, your aversion to the smell of feces and urine, and your testes.

    If you were to move a few hours out of the city to a county with a pro ccw sheriff, you could get a ccw that would be valid in the city of San Fran. Many of the northern California Counties are pretty pro gun and ccw's are not hard to get. But like I said it would take living 3-4 hours outside the city. I have heard Mendocino County to the north is pretty good.

    Have you checked out San Francisco? Real Estate, overall cost of living? VERY Different cost of living between Indy and SF. To put things into perspective, eight years ago (1998) I lived outside San Jose (which is south of San Francisco) and paid almost $1900 a month rent for a 1 bedroom apartment. The same apartment in the city of SF probably would have two times or more as much.

    I have heard the SF DA say on the radio that your CCW permit is not valid in SF, but he is blowing smoke.
