This form is used when a DROS is not required but a person is required to regiser a firearm transfer with the DOJ. An instances would be for an intrafamilial transfer - i.e. father to son. It could also be used to register a handugn aquired by any other LEGAL means, such as before registration was required, that did not had a DROS asociated with it. I am not sure why you would want to do that, except in the case of a handgun that you were going to illegally CCW and wanted to make sure it was registered to you if you got busted. A very similar form is "New Resident Handgun Ownership Report" for someone who moves into CA with the intent of becoming a resident and is brining handguns from out of state with them.
