View Full Version : Prob already asked

This might have been asked already. I tried to search but nothing came up. So here it goes.

For proof of California residency an ID and a utility bill will work but do they have to have the same address?

I havent updated my id and want to buy a handgun.

Also will my credit score be part of the decision if I get approval from the DOJ? All I have on my record is a DUI.

I'm not too sure how strict things are now but if someone has some insight that would be great. Thank You !!:)

All address have to match. Your DL/ID has to match your current address and your utility bill has to match that to.(pretty sure about that).
I doubt credit scores is a factor, as long as you can pay for it.

If your address on your CDL/ID is not current, you will need some official document that shows your current address (I believe a utility bill or car registration will work).

My address on my CDL is not current (I moved recently) and I needed to show my voter registration card and my utility bill from PG&E and I was good to go.

Call your FFL to be sure.

Welcome to CalGuns, Credit score does not factor. DOJ checks criminal background, so depending on the DUI level you might be denied.
I had a DUI that was reduced to Reckless driving and was able to buy a handgun, but that's because the criminal case was tossed, and I did not have enough money to take on the DMV.

Welcome aboard. Call your local FFL to confirm, depending on what else you may use. I know a passport is also a possibility. I believe you can also go to DMV and get an identification card. I don't know if those ship out faster than a DL, doubt it though.

Welcome aboard!

Looks like your Qs been A'd. Just for future reference, most folks don't look into the "new here" areas for Qs to A. This topic has come up quite a bit in the general gun discussions area.
