On the applicable form, the question "DATE ACQUIRED" -- is this the date I left the deposit/filled out the paperwork or the date when I actually picked up the firearm after the 10-day waiting period?

It would be the day you actually picked it up.

If you actually filled out paperwork, and went through a 10-day wait, your firearm is already registered. Am I missing something?

+1

If you ran the purchase through DROS, the VOLREG form is not necessary.

The 'official' date that matters is the date in which you filled up the DROS paperwork, (starting from which your 10 days began to count down). You know that's the one because that's the date to use to count the 30 days it takes before you can buy a new toy. :)

As others have mentioned, the DROS paperwork is already registering it, so no need to register it any further.

Perhaps he did not purchase it in California? Perhaps just moved here with handguns? Perhaps he wants to voluntarly reg a long gun?If you actually filled out paperwork, and went through a 10-day wait, your firearm is already registered. Am I missing something?

Could be, but "picked up the firearm after the 10-day waiting period" certainly triggers thoughts of 'California purchase' on a CA gun forum.

I thought the DROS fee was to confirm or deny purchasing eligibility. So, upon full payment of all fees and costs, my handgun is registered to my name available for LEO viewing via CA DOJ?
