CA's got a "Roster of Certified Handguns". In addition to the stupid 10 round mag rule, in order to purchase, sell, or import a handgun into the state - it's got to be on the list. Vendors' handguns need to meet certain qualifications and they have to pay money to have each model certified in order to appear on the list. There are handguns out there that meet all the qualifications, but the vendors refuse to pay extra money just to have them listed. Sucks for us.Welcome from Indiana! Why are the XDM-40's illegal in CA.My XD-45 service bi-tone said on the box that it was not ca. legal but it had 10 round mags?
