    I went into a gun shop today to buy a XD-M 45 and was told they do not sell them in California. I also spend much of my time in Parker, AZ and I am thinking about buying it in Parker, AZ. Here area a few questions.

    1) Can I legally bring the XD-M in CA if I buy in AZ?
    2) What are taxes in AZ if I buy a gun? (State, county, additional gun taxes ect...)
    3) What is needed for ID? (I just renewed my passport and do not have it back yet)

    I would hate to get all of the way out there only to find out I forgot something or they will not sell me the gun.

    The next time you get to Parker ... Don't turn around, and never head West again.
    Problem solved, and you'll then be living in a free State :p

    I'm not sure about California law,
    But you'd probably be in violation of their laws, if you were still a resident of California when you made the purchase ... Then when you were caught with the gun, they'd take your gun, and lock you up for a long time ... Then when you got out, you'd have a felony on your record, and might never be able to legally own another firearm.

    Leave the State or leave the idea of ever owning an XDm-45 in a box full of wishes ... I doubt they'll ever approve one in that liberalized, socialized, communist place called California.

    But I'm no specialist in California law, so ... Join calguns.net (as suggested) and ask other people who live in Cali

    When I bought my .45 XDm, the salesman told me I cannot bring it to California. There is also a label on the outside of the case saying it is not legal there. I don't know the laws there or if there is a way around it.

    Thank you everyone and it really pisses me off that as a tax paying citizen and a life long NRA Member that I need to abide by these ****** rules. The state of California sucks! I will go over to California Gun Laws and see if there might be an option for dual residency but it sounds like they got that covered too.

    Is it because its a .45? I just bought a XDm 9mm in CA with no problems. Because the gun is not on the legal guns list in CA, they have to put a 10" barrel on it and a 1 round mag to make it a legal purchase. I leave the store, then bring my gun back in to get worked on and they replace the factory parts. It will have a 10 round mag, but other than that its exactly the same.

    I really want the XDm45 but I think am just going to throw in the towel and get the Glock Model 21 4th generation.

    Check out the S&W M&P 45acp, they are great handguns. I like the feel and the trigger IMO is much smoother then a glock. I just got back from the range and tried both XDm, Glock, and M&P all back to back and the XDm is my first choice and then the M&P comes in 2nd. The glock was fine I have no complaints just felt like the 1st two were much better IMO. Sorry you can't own a XDm45, maybe you can get it thru a private party in Az and then just keep it there in your 2nd home. Good luck and whatever you choice make sure its what feels and shoots the best to you.

    Why, find a gun shop that will do the single shot long barrel thing and get the gun you really want.

    +1 I would like to understand who and where to go to get this done. If it is straight forward I will get the XDm45. It is the gun I really want.

    Tracy Rifle & Pistol in Tracy, CA. They seem legit to me, I watched some guy do it when I was there ordering the gun. He bought it with a long barrel and 1 round mag, walked out, shut the door, turned around, walked back in, replaced the factory parts, tah dah!!!
