My son, who lives in Washington state has an off roster pistol that he wants to give me.
Questions:
What forms must I fill out?
I understand that he must submit a letter to the DOJ...where does my son have to send the letter?

Thanks for your help,

OG

I don't know anything abou a letter unless you're referring to the operation of law for with $19. That doesn't apply here.
Either he goes with you to an ffl with the gun in ca
or
and since it's off roster I don't think you can do this.
He sends it From a Washington ffl to your ffl in CA.

Things are more complicated than that.

See the Calguns Foundation Wiki articles on

Intrafamilial transfer - http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/Transferring_Firearms_Among_Some_Family_Members

Interstate transfer - http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/Transferring_firearms_Interstate

Basically, because the transfer is WA to CA, it is interstate, and Federal law requires that you use a CA FFL. The letter goes to the FFL.

1. You need to use a CA FFL for this transaction.
2. FFL must be smart enough to understand interstate intrafamily xfers.
3. Son delivers/sends the gun to your CA FFL with a 'gift letter'.
4. The gift letter says "I'm giving my dad, Joe Osogrande, my Colt Python
revolver, serial #123456. Signed, Junior Osogrande <date>"
5. The FFL DROSes this gun to you, and it's Roster exempt due to
12078PC intrafamily exemption. The FFL keeps the gift letter
or copy thereof, in his files as 'backup' material.
6. Ten days later, you pick your new gun up.
