    Glad I live in Missouri and picked up my XDS at Ultimate Defense range in O'Fallon yesterday. Shot it, love it! I noticed on the box it is illegal in California, why is that? Magazine capacity is less than 10.

    For the other folks who said "huh"? when they read this...

    The Safe Handgun List - Calguns Foundation Wiki

    Short version... an annual tax on gun manufacturers for EVERY variant of any gun they want to sell in the state, disguised as a "safety" regulation.

    Wow! I had no idea how "Restricted" Kalifornians really were! I'm glad I don't have to worry about that here in Florida! :cool:

    Noncentsical, Thanks for the link, It was an eye opener! :shock:

    I believe it wont be in kommiefornia as it has no mag disconnect feature that that state requires.

    I live in Nevada and even being next door to California bothers me. That's one place that has its priorities all screwed up.

    Even if it meets the requirements, it takes time to get on the list. And as already stated, every variant. The bi tone might not make the list on the same pass.

    And it probably has to say something on it about causing cancer. Everything causes cancer in Cali... ;)

    As to the mag safety. Isn't a Glock Cali legal? 1911s?

    I think in Kali they require an internal lock with a "key" also not just a thumb safety.

    Winner! You're correct.

    To be on the list and not have a mag disconnect, you had to be on that list before they added the requirement. It doesn't matter to the anti-gun hacks in Sacramento that the XD and XDm are functionally identical.

    Exactly.

    That said, I am enjoying my California-legal XDm 4.5 .45. ;)

    Oh my California almost makes it impossible to own a handgun!
    That stinks, glad I'm a long way away....

    Which is precisely the motive behind all gun laws here.

    I'm still waiting for a savvy lawyer to really challenge the state on their gun laws and regulations.
