I bought two rifles last week, a Browning Custom Trophy with Trijicon variable and a custom built on a pre-64 action with a Zeiss variable for less than the price of the scopes. I am waiting for a Fox C ejector gun that I bought for a bit less than a Plain Jane Elsie would sell for around here, to arrive Monday or Tuesday.
California's legislators have created a true buyers' mart for those of us living elsewhere.
Google is your friend, Junnie. Google CA gun shops and check out their websites and classified ads in city papers around the state, particularly L.A., San Fran. and San Diego.
