New California Compliant Ruger SR22 Available Through Sports South

The Ruger SR22 is an affordable and fun little 22-caliber plinker that’s been around for over a decade now. However, the residents of California have not typically been able to purchase these fun little handguns due to not being on the infamous California Roster – something that pretty much never changes. However, for all of my fellow firearms friends directly to my south, I’m happy to report that this has just changed – the Ruger SR22 has finally made its way onto the approved list of handguns that can be sold in California. This new California Compliant Ruger SR22 will be available exclusively through Sports South, a fairly large online firearms wholesale and distributor that serves the nation through its home base in Shreveport, Louisiana.

According to the product page on the Ruger website, the California compliant Ruger SR22 is virtually identical in every way to the standard version of the SR22, it’s literally the same exact gun. The Cali Compliant version even has the exact same MSRP as nearly every other standard variant of the SR22. The one major difference is that this one just happens to be approved on California’s handgun roster, meaning those in the Golden State can finally pick up one of these neat little rimfire plinkers. You can typically find them for about $450 at most local gun stores and big box outlets but they occasionally go on sale online elsewhere.
