The gun, shipping, whatever your FFL of choice wants to charge you to receive it, California sales tax and DROS.

You have to pay Ca Sales tax on a used gun not bought in CA?

thx Ted

Over the years I've bought maybe 20 used handguns from out of state dealers, shipped them in through a local FFL, and never been charged CA sales tax. You should clarify this point with your FFL before you start the transaction.

It's not a sales tax, it's a use tax.
Either you pay it at the dealer or pay it when you claim your state taxes.

Legally, you are required to pay use tax on ANY item that you bring into this state. Now, with the state so broke, they are cracking down on FFLs and other bussinesses and requiring them to collect the tax,
