My daughter lives in Nevada and I live in California. Can she buy a handgun in Nevada from a FFL dealer and give it to me as a gift? Is there any paperwork that needs to be done?

Thanks for all of the work you are doing on our behalf.

Welcome :)

Here's the paperwork:
http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/forms/pdf/oplaw.pdf see next post

I'm not certain the regs regarding how she can get it to you, (I think NV FFL to CA FFL, but someone will likely chime in and correct me).

While bonafide gifts up or down (not across) the family tree are legal for off roster firearms that are otherwise not illegal configurations, please bear in mind that if you give her the $ for the gun it could be considered a straw purchase which wouldn't be legal.

edit...

What firearm did she say she wanted to get you anyway?

You may also need to have the magazines permanetly altered to accept no more than 10 rounds if the standard ones are >10, or shipped disassembled as "parts kits".

yes she can, but the paperwork has to be done at a CA FFL. They will take possession of the handgun from your daughter and then do a transfer to you.

You don't use that form when it is an interstate transfer. I guess you could use it if you just wanted to comply with CA law while you violated federal law.

Ah good catch. :)

The wiki link I initially followed was just to the form. The but as it points out on the bottom of the intrafamilial transfer page:
Interstate Intrafamily transfers need FFL located in CA

Thanks for pointing this out, I hadn't noticed it prior.

Welcome aboard! You might be better served asking in one of the other subforums. Not too many folks look in the new-here area for questions.

And I'm pretty sure this question has been asked quite a bit. Try searching for similar questions. I don't know the answer or I'd offer it up, lol.
