View Full Version : 1 Person will not go to FFL, can you still PPT?

I just replied to this thread in the Gun section, and wanted some feedback.

Nope, not legal.

The statute doesn't require presence of both people but the way the DROS software is written does require both people to be present. I don't think any FFL will do a PPT involving a seller who isn't present.

Other than FFL-exempt situations (C&R rifles, intrafamily, inheritance/ or operation-of-law transfers) the transferor has to show up at the CA FFL for a PPT. That is, unless he shipped the gun to the CA FFL, and the FFL was able to sell it as an dealer-inventoried item (i.e, Roster applicable or exempt) as a non-PPT xfer.

Otherwise, he may not have to show up at the FFL at same time as the buyer (i.e., deal structured as a 'consignment sale') but he has to show up.
