Hi Everyone:
A friend of mine's brother lives in Arizona and owns a Taurus Millenium .40 S&W. The brother wants to get it out of the house as he has new baby and wife is an idiot. He'll sell it for a very reasonable price to my friend/his brother (whom lives here in California). What kind of paperwork do they need to do the transfer? ie HSC, Approved list qualifications, etc.? Brother from Arizona will be coming to California in a week and will bring the Taurus with him for the transaction. No Mag problems as it only holds 10 rounds. I've heard of the Intrafamilial transfer? Just don't know any details. Thanks for any input on this. c good

there's no special exemptions for transfers between brothers. It'd be like getting a gun from anyone else, which means you go through a FFL...

now if the guy gave the gun to his DAD, and the DAD decided to give it to his other SON, that's a little different...

either way, a HSC *IS* required

And because this is an interstate transaction, the transfer is going to have to be done through a California Dealer. This would also be the case if the gun was coming from the father from out of state. This is a Federal requirement, so the California intrafamilial exemption doesn't apply here.

So the handgun transfer is going to be treated just like a regular Dealer sale.

The gun has to be on the approved list.
Your friend needs an HSC.
He needs proof of residency that meets DOJ's requirements for handgun purchases.
The gun will have to be DROS'd.
There will be a 10 day wait to pick it up.
He will have to comply with the gunlock/safe requirements.
The Dealer can charge what ever price he wants for the transfer.

Maybe the Dealer will go easy on them if he knows it is a family transfer and only charge $50.
