Hello law enforcement officers

Someday my father will pass on, like all fathers.(he's 74)
My question is when he does pass on he wants the firearms left to me. The firearms are old, one is 1894 model Winchester made about 1906. The other is old Winchester pump shotgun, sorry I haven't researched that one. The last one is a 1911 Colt .45 made about 1938 to 1945. All firearms were given to him from his father.

Do I have to go to an FFL dealer and pay to transfer and wait ten days for firearms?
Or skip the FFL dealer and take them and put them in my safe ?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for all the hard work all you law enforcement officers do !

From father to son (both CA residents) none of the guns need to go through an FFL. The rifles and shotguns he can just give to you without any paperwork, and the pistols you need to fill out an intrafamilial handgun transfer, and send it in with $19, then the handgun is yours.

Wow thank you for that application !!!

Maybe someday I can figure out how you all find this great info and put the links up. Gov. web sights are very hard to navigate for me.

Thanks
