I was looking into purchasing a pistol from another member and I noticed that the info on my Drivers license was incorrect. I filed the change of address with the DMV a few days ago, and I was wondering how long I should wait before I purchase the pistol? I don't want to have any problems with the transfer.

As far as I know you can purchase one immediately and as long as you have a utility bill verifying your current address with you at the Point of Sale you should pass the Federal background check without a problem. As to what your State DOJ will do, that's a different ball of wax.

I updated my address in the DMV system but I never requested a new driver license. So my driver license still has my old address while my car registration has my new address. I never had any problems buying guns even though the addresses don't match.

I still use my old address from 5 years ago cause that's what's on my license that the ffl makes a copy of. Never had a problem in 20+ transactions. I changed my address with dmv a long time ago and its never come up.

No problem as long as your secondary identification has the same address that you put on the DRO form and your ID is not expired.

CA DL/ID for federal verification and registration/utility bill for CA verification.

Depends on the FFl. When I moved the local ffl wanted something from the government with my new address, but my registration also had old address.

am I reading you correct? You list an old address that you no longer live at on your DROS and 4473 as your current address? not worried about picking up a felony charge for lying on a federal form?
