All you need is your department ID and driver license.

They are correct and a request please. Please do not use CAPS as it is considered "yelling" on the internet. Thanks for your cooperation; now go out and buy that gun.;)

Policy Change Regarding State Exemptions for Authorized Peace Officers

Effective immediately, peace officers who have legislative authority to carry and use firearms may, without a letter signed by the head of their agency or the agency head's designee, purchase non-rostered handguns and/or large capacity magazines. The peace officer must present a valid peace officer identification card and the dealer must retain a copy of the identification card on file. (PC 12132 & 12133). A letter is still required from the head of the agency to exempt the peace officer from the ten day waiting period. (PC 12078).

Great info, thanks. Unfortunately I had a FFL telling me that my off list pistol would require a department letter. This was after the gun was shipped to him by the seller, I was pretty sure he was wrong but was having a hard time finding the info.

The dealer is dead wrong. Go to ProForce where they know what they are doing with Leo transfers.
