I am a non-resident, but I’m also here on military orders. That’s what I found ironic about my situation. I can walk into any store here in California, present my military ID card, my military travel orders, and my drivers license and buy a gun legally. However, everyone keeps telling me I can’t buy ammo here! LOL
I also am allowed to buy a resident hunting license here by providing my orders to the licensed agent.
Fortunately under all the new screwy CA ammo laws I’m legally allowed to drive out of state, purchase as much ammo as I want, and bring it back to my house here in California. That’s something that even a California resident can’t do legally. It’s just a hassle for me to do so since it’s 3.5 hours to the Cabelas in Nevada from my house and currently the Coast Guard isn’t letting us travel more than 100 miles from our base. Guess I could always send the wife to pick it up but that just wouldn’t be very chivalrous of me!
