If you are a California resident, you probably already realize that Prop 63 will impact your subscription. We’ve had a ton of questions about this....

Here's the Short Version:

Starting in January 2018 you’ll need to buy ammunition face-to-face.

What this means is that we will no longer be able to ship ammo to your door and will instead need to ship to an intermediary (gun store or ammunition dealer).

The only question for you really is how burdensome the “fee” charged by receiving dealers will be and whether this will offset the cost of buying ammo locally. According to the text of the law, the ammunition vendor can charge a fee that will be set by the California DOJ (the fee is still unknown at this point).


*Below is the text of the applicable law that changed: *

*SEC. 8.6. Section 30312 of the Penal Code is amended to read:*

*30312. (1) Commencing January 1, 2018, the sale of ammunition by any party
shall be conducted by or processed through a licensed ammunition vendor.(2)
When neither party to an ammunition sale is a licensed ammunition vendor,
the seller shall deliver the ammunition to a vendor to process the
transaction. The ammunition vendor shall then promptly and properly deliver
the ammunition to the purchaser, if the sale is not prohibited, as if the
ammunition were the vendor’s own merchandise. If the ammunition vendor
cannot legally deliver the ammunition to the purchaser, the vendor shall
forthwith return the ammunition to the seller. The ammunition vendor may
charge the purchaser an administrative fee to process the transaction, in
an amount to be set by the Department of Justice, in addition to any
applicable fees that may be charged pursuant to the provisions of this
title.(b) Commencing January 1, 2018, the sale, delivery or transfer of
ownership of ammunition by any party may only occur in a face-to-face
transaction with the seller, deliverer, or transferor, provided, however,
that ammunition may be purchased or acquired over the Internet or through
other means of remote ordering if a licensed ammunition vendor initially
receives the ammunition and processes the transaction in compliance with
this section and Article 3 (commencing with Section 30342) of Chapter 1 of
Division 10 of Title 4 of this part.*
