Good luck.EOD Guy said:In California, it is legal for a grandparent to give a grandchild a handgun without transferring it through a dealer. If the pistol was bought in California in the 60's, it should not be registered unless your grandfather voluntarily registered it.
If you want to register the pistol, go to the California DOJ Firearms web site and download a firearm registration form, fill it out, and send it along with $14.00 to the California DOJ.
You must be legally eligible to posses the handgun.

Yes, legally you must inform the DOJ within 30 days of taking possession of any handguns and you must have a Handgun Safety Certificate. You do not have to notify them of any rifle or shotgun transfers.Meka said:I have inherited some guns from my grandfather. My question is leagally must I inform the DOJ? I live in California. If so where do I get the forms? And where do I send them? Thanks
