California residents will have to go to a licensed dealer and undergo a background check when buying ammunition.
According to CA Proposition 63, all ammunition purchased online or from a mail-order catalog must be shipped to a licensed vendor.
As a result of this legislation that starts taking effect on January 1, 2018, Ammo Sports-N-More will cease all ammunition direct sales to California residents
effective December 17, 2017. Ammunition will need to be sent to an approved ammunition vendor. Any and all additional costs for transfer from vendor to the consumer
is the responsibility of the consumer.
Proposition 63 supersedes AB 962 and applies to all ammunition sales and summarized as follows:
Effective January 1, 2018
•Licensed sellers will conduct and process all ammunition sales
•Unlicensed sellers will have to conduct ammunition sales through a licensed vendor much like private party firearms transactions
•Ammunition obtained from an out-of-state seller must initially ship to a licensed ammunition vendor for delivery to the purchaser upon completion of a background check
Effective July 1, 2019
•Sellers will not sell or transfer ammunition without conducting a background check on the buyer
•California law requires ammunition sellers to record, maintain, and report to the DOJ records of ammo sales in a manner similar to that of a firearm purchase
Proposition 63 does allow ammunition sales at shooting ranges without the purchaser undergoing a background check and without a sale record provided the ammo remains inside the facility.
