Is Super Blackhawk Hunter 7.5" California legal?

Does anyone know if the Super Blackhawk Hunter 7.5" is legal to purchase in California? I thought that it was but was informed by a local shop that it isn't on the list of approved handguns for CA DOJ.

Also, the Ruger website states that it IS legal.

Kind of confused.

Since the Super blackhawk hunter is a single action revolver, it is legal in CA. Single action revolvers are exempt from having to be safety tested and put on the list. You can confirm this by going to the "roster of handguns approved for sale" at the CA. Dept. of Justice website.

Because single action revolver are not required to be tested first and approved, they will not appear on the list as being approved. There is a paragraph that states they are exempt.

I know there is some beautiful country in Cali and some temperate weather, but all those idiotic gun restrictions make no sense at all.

He is 100% correct. SA's are exempt.
