View Full Version : .50bmg registration info

I sent in my reg card for my .50 with payment and I got it back pretty fast (just a few days). Is it because they don't have to do a background check like they do when I purchase a firearm?

Also, I got a copy of my other reg'd AW's along with the letter about my .50 being reg'd. Don't know why, but oh well.

Has anyone also experienced these two situations?

They may run a backround check just to check for disqualifying events (felony/domestic violence misdemeanor, etc.)

It may be quick. The 10day waiting period in CA is just a politically-imposed waiting period, I believe the DROS records check can actually happen quickly. Removal of the 10 day wait in CA - not that it'd ever happen! - should not affect, whatsoever, ability to screen gun buyers for prohibiting disabilities, and same system minus the wait could still be used.

You got a copy of your other reg'd AWs because 50BMG regs and AW regs are stored in the same registry/database.
