Thanks for the info cs4160, and I am definitely gonna look into that rainbow shooting range, I heard there's a nice place in jacumba off of the 8 but don't look foward to the drive since I don't have exact directions, I think you shouldn't have to pay to fire your weapon just for plinking but I guess this isnt burger king I can't always have it my way...

I just wanted to comment on my previous post regarding using a pre ban hi cap magazine with a newly purchased california compliant AR, specifically the 516, but this would apply to any "bullet button" rifle.
Calguns has a great flowchart that can help you navigate the maze of rules,
but bottom line, PC 12276.1 (a) lists 3 tests to determine if your weapon has the characteristics of an assault weapon. Our bullet button gets us passed section (1), the length of weapon gets us past (3), but (2) is the kicker.
(2) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.
By my read, once you put a legal pre ban hi cap magazine in your California compliant SIG AR, its now designated as an Assault Rifle. Go straight to jail, do not collect 200 dollars...
By the way, finally gotten around to shooting my 2 week old Sig 516....very very nice. The tool to release the mag was no big deal, the rifle shot far better than my skill level. Not a big fan of the scope, but the actual weapon was exceptional. Very happy with my purchase.

I also live in San Diego and they just said these things when i was buying my rifles.
1) the rifle cannot be under 30" long i think it is for the high caliber rifles that's included with the folding stock folded.
2) It has to have a bullet button instead of a quick mag release/ambi mag release.
3) it can only be semi automatic
4) you cannot hold more that 10rds per mag (this sucks). you could get the larger Pmag's but they are capped at 10rds as well.
here a pic of my toys:

Okay so if I buy a California compliment ar15 and I wanted to put a 30 round mag in it if I moved out of California or something would it work?
