Going to California from Texas for job.

I have a question my job is taking me to California for a while till I can get back to Texas maybe a year.
I have no plans of becoming a part of that commie state mind you. My mom lives out there and she is getting up in her years and wants to buy a firearm for her.
She will do all the red tape BS you have to buy one in that crazy state but has asked me to bring one of my pistols so she can learn. I was thinking my Beretta 92fs not a lot of kick but a good gun to learn on.
My question is can I do this? I know that as soon as I cross the state lne it will have to be locked up in a box in the trunk.
Can I as a Texas resident even bring my gun to California? My carry permit means nothing in that state.
Will I have to get a 10 round commie magazine? I will be staying at her house to save some cash and help her with getting her own gun.
Thanks any advice is really needed.
 

No just the standard 92 fs 15 round magazine is what I have. Guess I have to leave it in Texas and get a 10 round POS California style what a joke.
I am glad I moved to Texas in 1989.
 
If your concern is only for having a gun that she can practice with, I'd suggest going to a range out there and renting a gun for that purpose. Heck, they'll have plenty for her to choose from so she can see what she likes. Best suggestion I can make regarding your Beretta is to leave it at home and buy a Commie Kompliant one when you get there. I left that state after they stopped having a long list of guns you couldn't buy and replaced it with a very short list of guns you could. I'd hate to see you lose your legal and proper Beretta to the Feinstein machine. Besides, when you return from the Reality-Free-Zone to Texas, you can show your friends what a pathetic excuse for self-defense passes for in Kalifornia.
 
Ya the mags a nogo in Cali. Also I thought I'd point out that I've discovered my 92fs is very prone to limp wristing with new shooters. Just something to watch for while you're teaching her.

Hello from an unhappy resident of the Illegal's Republic of California. Right now a ten round clip is the limit unless you have had it prior to when the limit was set (which I believe was the early'90s). I have a Ruger 10-22 that I have had for almost 30 years so my 30 round clip is "grandfathered" in. However our delusional legislature is looking to ban even the grandfather clause. Best stick with 10 rounds. Welcome to hell.

Didn't think you could buy a handgun out of state without having it shipped to a FFL in your home state. Would you have to buy it, ship it to home state FFL, pick up at home FFL and take it back to CA? What am I missing?

I agree with the suggestion of leaving your firearms home. I'd rent them in California to avoid the possibility of losing your personal guns.
 
I also travel to kalifornia for work, what I was told by the AG office was that as long as I wasn't a resident and didn't have any magazines that were more than 10 rounds I was fine. The mag disconnect didn't apply to a non-resident.

What about barrel length? I was told both my Sig 238 and xds are illegal in California due to size. (Recently told and haven't had time or motivation to research California laws) Is the magazine restriction the only ban that is for non residents?
 
Really? Only restriction for residents?

Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale - Firearms Division - California Dept. of Justice - Office of the Attorney General

"Effective January 1, 2001, no handgun may be manufactured within California, imported into California for sale, lent, given, kept for sale, or offered/exposed for sale unless that handgun model has passed firing, safety, and drop tests and is certified for sale in California by the Department of Justice. Private party transfers, curio/relic handguns, certain single-action revolvers, and pawn/consignment returns are exempt from this requirement."

A handgun brought into the state by a "personal handgun importer" for their private possession and/or use does not have to meet the requirements of California's "safe handgun list".

My understanding also is you can buy a gun not on the list from someone who legally possesses it (going through and FFL of course).
