New to this site...
Has anyone moved to California from another state recently and registered their handguns (and themselves) ? Any problems?

Welcome to Calguns. Here is a cut & paste from CA DOJ.:
I am moving into California and I own several handguns. What are the new-resident registration requirements?
You are considered to be a personal handgun importer as defined by California law. You may bring all of your otherwise California-legal firearms with you, but you must report all of your handguns to the DOJ within 60 days as required utilizing the New Resident Handgun Ownership Report, pdf. You are not required to report rifles or shotguns. You may not bring ammunition feeding devices with a capacity greater than ten rounds, machineguns, or assault weapons into California.
(PC sections 12001(n), 12072(f)(2))
Here is a link to their website, moving to CA is question 25.- http://oag.ca.gov/firearms/pubfaqs
Here is a link to the new resident handgun registration form: http://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/pdfs/firearms/forms/ab991frm.pdf?
You don't need to sell your magazines that hold over 10 rounds but you do need to take them apart prior to entering CA. You may be able to block some of them to only hold 10 rounds or less which will make them CA compliant.
