Welcome to The Firing Line, Kip!
Good luck! Please don't take this to be rude, but: Go find a lawyer and quit posting facts about your case on the internet. What you discuss with your lawyer is confidential, and protected by law. What you post on the internet is not. Besides, very few of us are licensed to practice law in California, and you have no way of judging our credentials.
A gunfight is not the time to learn new skills.
If you ever have a real need for more than a couple of magazines, your problem is not a shortage of magazines. It's a shortage of people on your side of the argument. -- Art Eatman
