Hello, I am an owner of an LWRC Rifle and I wanted to purchase a Glock 22. I went to my local gun dealer and we started the paper work, before I left, he notified me that before taking home the gun I would need to supply a Proof Of Residency because my CA ID is not valid for some reason.

Anyways, I did some reasearch and the easiest way it seems is to have a Rental Agreement signed by your Landlord or whoever you rent from. It then says to take it and get it Notirized, I have no idea how to do that or what it takes?

How do i go about the rest of this? Thanks Calguns.net!! :chris:

Rental agreements do NOT have to be notarized.

The most typical POR is vehicle registration or any land locked utility bill.

Water or Electric bill that is within 30 days works, Vehicle Registration works. Any Mailbox Etc, can notarize a document for about $10. just look up public notary in your yellow pages or internet search.

So using the rental agreement form, having that signed by the other party is all I need to get a notirization? Do i need to have the other people accompany or any other documents?

does your drivers license address match the address you put on the 4473?

It is a California ID, not a Drivers License, but yes the address is the same.

Your lease or rental agreement does not need to be notarized. Just bring the lease agreement, a utility bill, or auto registration that matches the address on your license/ID and you're good to go.

While we are on the same topic:

Can I use my paycheck stub or a letter mailed from San Diego County Courts in regard to a civil suit? What about a Vote by mail Ballot for voting?

vehicle registration or land locked utility bills (water, gas, electric, some shops will even accept a cable bill) with an address that matches what you put on the dros. 99 percent of the time you will need one of these to walk out.

You need a second Proof of Residency for a handgun purchase. That is why your CA ID is not sufficient.

Some may accept those documents. If it's from a government agency, and it has your address on it, I will accept it...Other FFLs are much more strict when it comes to documents not specifically mentioned in the code or not 100% matching criteria (your documentation is supposed to have an expiration date for example, and court papers may or may not)

Cool thanks man, I'll give my FFL a call and verify.
