View Full Version : Handgun registration status
08-02-2009, 9:09 PM
Hey, does anybody know how to check on the status of a firearm registration in the state of CA? I was given my first handgun by my dad for my 21st birthday back in the 80's. I don't know what the laws were then regarding the registered owner's name. There was a 15 day wait, but I'm not sure about the rest. I'd like to ensure that the weapon is in my name and not my dad's. Thanks in advance.
This will report which firearms are registered to you.
27.Can I get a list of the firearms for which I am listed as the purchaser, transferee, or owner?
Yes. To obtain a list of firearms listed in your name, complete and submit an Automated Firearms System Records Request [PDF 21 kb / 1 pg] form to the Automated Firearms Unit, P.O. Box 820200, Sacramento, CA 94203-0200. The letter must be signed, notarized, and include a photocopy of your photo ID card (ie., driver's license or DMV ID).

Thank you very much. I looked on that same website and obviously missed that link. Sometime one can go cross-eyed on that DOJ website. I appreciate your help.
