So i was really excited when i bought my first safe a week ago, but i failed to check if the safe was DOJ approved. I picked up a First Alert 6742DF Fire Resistant Executive Gun Safe http://www.firstalert.com/safes-cash-boxes/executive-gun/gun-safes/6742df

So the safe is not on the roster of DOJ approved safes, but appears to meet the regulatory gun safe standards. So this is where I'm confused, in the sticky thread Basic safe information for beginners the moderator wrote, "If it's a safe-sized box, it does not have to be on that Roster. DOJ says safes can be acceptable unlisted:" So by "acceptable" does that mean i could present the serial number of my recently bought safe to my FFL and not need to buy a new gun lock with the purchase of a firearm? Any input is appreciated thanks.

Make, model and the rest of the info required by the safe affidavit, yes.

Remember, works by itself for long guns only; Feds require a 'safety device' for handguns - see the wiki http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/Buying_and_selling_firearms_in_California#Locks.2C _Safes.2C_and_Laws
