I am sure this has been covered here at this site before.
I am new.
Who is contacted in the 10 day waiting period?
What is the information they are looking for?

The DROS process is run by CA DOJ. The do a basic criminal background check and query NICS I believe. They are looking for any felonies or any of the prohibiting misdemeanors. Procedurally, they also check to make sure your DL or ID is valid so it can pick up driver's license issues as a practical matter.

FYI, if you want to do a "dry run" of the check, you can choose to do a Personal Firearms Eligibility Check (http://www.ag.ca.gov/firearms/pfecfaqs.php) with DOJ. Note that if it came back with you being ineligible to purchase or possess, you would have to relinquish the guns you already own (http://www.ag.ca.gov/firearms/pfecfaqs.php#29).
