    A few years ago our local Walmart opened (it was during the 8 years of Ohblahblahma), there was a run on ammo at the time. When they finally opened the front door on the south end of the store, there was a rush in that was crazy. I got a cart and watched the ceremony of grand opening of the store. I noticed that there was not many around me, and I shook the hands of some of the local dignitaries and others. Then I went to shop, there was a 3 wide line all the way across the store to the sporting goods section, they were waiting for it to officially open to buy ammo. I think it was cleaned out in about 30 seconds of everything ammo...….Jetspray

    I think every bullet should have your DNA on it, so spit on them when you load them, that way they can find our who shot the bullet, everywhere in California, unless your residence is in LA or SF, then they can only identify them if your crap on them...….Jetspray

    This information is spot on. I think the biggest problem is goin to be when waterfowl hunters come into California and either don’t bring ammo or don’t bring enough. On a multi day hunt a duck hunter can shoot up a bunch of boxes of shells. It is also illegal to give ammo to someone else but would be almost impossible to bust someone for doing so.
    So Hooks you can bring ammo into California and hunt to your hearts content. Remember though no lead is allowed for any hunting in California. Non lead cartridges is going to change the ballistics you are use to with lead. Until hunters get use to the ballistic characteristics of non lead there is going to be less 1 shot kills and more wounding and crippling.

    So as a Nevada resident I can’t buy ammo in California nor transport ammo into California?

    So much for my lifetime California hunting license and big game package.

    Archery only I guess?...for now.

I am sure there is more than one source of info out there that explains it all. The gun shop should have been able to explain it to you. Either way you will have to spend some money to get it done.
    If you are not a California resident you cannot buy ammo in California.

    Oh and you cannot import ammo from another state if you are a resident.

    Re: Tried to buy a box of 22 ammo

    This is what an FFL at a gun store explained to me a week ago. If you are buying ammo for a caliber gun that there is a record of you buying or owning, the background check costs $1.00. If there is no record of you buying or owning the caliber gun that you want to buy ammo for then the background check costs $19. If the background check is clean then you can buy as much ammo as you want. If you are rejected from the purchase there is a procedure that you can find out from the DOJ the reason.
    Every time you buy ammo a background check is required. So if you bought it today and again tomorrow another background check would be required tomorrow.
    So unless there is something that showed up in the background check CDK you can buy your 22 ammo. I think probably the store you tried to buy from doesn’t know what they are doing. Try another store that sells guns and has a FFL present.
    I of course am not advising anyone to do this but if you drive to Reno Nv. You can buy all the ammo you want, no problem, no hassle. It is of course illegal to bring it back into California. I took a nice Saturday drive to Cabelas last Saturday and all I can say is they had a lot of ammo on sale at great prices. Not that I bought any of course.
