Is it possible that new Contenders and Encores will be allowed to be sold in CA? In the past, T/C refused to test their pistols with every possible barrel combination in CA so new frames were outlawed. Here is what I found in the new laws in CA for 2007.
Anyone have any more info on this and Thompson/Center?SB 269 (Dutton) – Exempts certain firearms from mandatory safety testing of handguns sold in California. An exemption from safety testing already exists for single-action, long-barrel revolvers, which are types of firearms owned mostly by hobbyists and collectors. This bill adds a similar exemption for single-shot, long-barrel pistols, which proponents of the measure assert are rare in general circulation and also used mostly by hobbyists.
