Are out of state handgun purchases from private persons who shipped the handguns to my FFL considered PPT's?

I recently purchased two handguns from two different out of state private persons, both shipped to the same CA FFL. Long story short, FFL says I have to wait 41 days from 1st DROS to get 2nd gun. Here is timeline:

- 4/17/09: Complete HG #1 DROS paperwork
- 4/24/09: HG #2 arrives at FFL
- 4/28/09: Pick up HG #1 from FFL. Get to fondle HG#2 but obviously have to leave it there
- FFL says 31 days from HG #1 pickup until HG #2 DROS paperwork can be started so...
- 5/29/09: Complete HG #2 DROS paperwork
- 6/8/08: Pick up HG #2 from FFL

Is this correct? Do I really have to wait 31 days from HG #1 pickup to complete DROS paperwork on HG #2?

Teaser... Here is HG #2!

Not a PPT if it was shipped in to your FFL. 30 days between DROS. 40 days from the start of the first DROS to when you pick up the second handgun.

Is this on the CA approved handgun list??

Bummer on the 40 days:(:(

Yes it is on the "safe" list. It is a S&W 629 Stealth Hunter from the Performance Center.

The wait is most brutal!!!

It's not as bad as it sounds. Handgun pick up to handgun pick up is still 30 days in between, if you discount the first 10 day wait. Oh and congrats on that monster.

Yes sadly , if its being shippd in, even if its from an individual, its still counts for the 30 days.

FFL is wrong.

You can start your second DROS 30 days after the first DROS is submitted. So, if first DROS was on 4/17 at 1PM, then on 5/17 after 1PM, you can do the next DROS. Since that time may be hard to lock in, may be easier to just wait until the 18th.

12072. (a)(9)(A) No person shall make an application to purchase more than one pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of being concealed upon the person within any 30-day period.

The application is made when the DROS is submitted. The pickup, after teh 10-day wait, does not "make an application".
