Do I need an FFL dealer to own a gun given to me by my father?

if it is a handgun, your father just hands it to you and you need to only submit the transfer form from the DOJ and pay $19. If it's a long gun, your father just hands it to you. All rules and laws apply as in if you can legally own a gun and of age. I'm sure someone with more knowledge will chime in.

^ isnt the AR techinally considered a "long gun" . I thought as long as there are serial numbers on the rifle/gun you need to do the transfer

where did you hear that?

long gun(non AW): hand it to the kid, the kid says thank you, do you want me to mow the lawn now or take out the trash.

pistol(non AW): fill out intra-familiar transfer form, send in with check, done.

any sort of registered AW: son may never own the AW. The AW must leave the state when the father passes away.

assuming that both you and your father both live in CA, your father can give you a gun without needing to use an FFL. If it is a handgun, then you would need to submit the intrafamily/oplaw form with the $19. You would need to be 18 in order to receive the handgun.

Now, if you father lives out of state, then you must use a CA FFL to facilitate the transfer to comply with federal law. The FFL can charge whatever fee he wishes. Where it gets interesting is tht your father can give you a non-rostered handgun because CA exempts intrafamily handgun transfers from needing to be rostered.

and the above is right about if your Dad is outside of CA.
