Default Can I buy a Ruger LCP .380 from a cop buddy?

I have a hunting buddy who is a cop. He has an LCP he bought in CA as a backup but he doesn't like it and wants to get rid of it. Nothing to do with the gun, he just has giant hands and I don't, so I want it.

So the LCP is legally in CA and he wants to legally sell it. Can I just go to my local FFL and do the deal? I don't want to break any gun laws and jeopardize my own permit. I'm in Ventura if anyone knows an FFL locally who will handle this transaction.

I know this has been covered before but it seemed to center on transfers from relatives.

As long as the gun is legally in the state, it can be transferred to anyone via PPT and transerred and transferred again. Any FFL will handle that for you.

there was one here locally, it was featured in Auction Arms,

some lucky local soul now has it, albeit slighty used

with about 40 or so rounds "test" fired through it
When in doubt empty the magazine

"Test" fired....... I know, it is something what this state has turned into.
"If you don't shoot, you can't score"
"The movement of the prey, stimulates the predator" not become prey.
'The universe favors the prepared mind"

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." -Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria.
