He has to DROS it to you. I guess he could also loan it to you every 30 day indefinitely. ;)

He could gift it to his mother or father thats related to your mother or father then from there it could be gifted to your mother or father that's related then they could gift it to you. All without dros

as long as they're all "on board" with it there shouldn't be any issue.

This is what I don't get. There is no paper trail... how would they prove otherwise?

If his cousin gave him the gun... in theory, all the OP would have to say is that it was a gift from his cousin to his aunt to his grandma to his mom to him.

This is one more reason intrafamilial transfer laws in CA are retarded.

being someone who can legally possess a gun and having a gun in your possession that is completely legal but never having it dros'ed will not be a problem unless you get caught carrying it in an illegal fashion. it also wont be a gun you can ccw even if you have a ccw

someone please correct me if i am wrong in any way

Yes, there does not need to be a paper trail, but it can be self registered with this: http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/forms/pdf/volreg.pdf

Actually, although some jurisdictions reportedly require that CCW permit guns be registered, carrying an unregistered handgun LEGALLY is legal...........if ya know what I mean. If you carry it illegally (violating 12025) the penalty is enhanced, it isn't a separate violation.

seeing as how the gun in question is a savage in 300 win mag with a bull barrel and the rifle is almost 4 feet long and heavy as all heck i dont think me not being able to use it for my ccw is going to be a problem ;)
