View Full Version : Moving out of state, AW questions....

07-31-2007, 4:03 PM
Friend has a few registered AWs and is planning to move out-of-state. Will moving to a new state of primary residence automatically void the CA AW registrations or otherwise disqualify him from possessing them in CA again or is there a way to maintain these the registrations without his actually living here anymore?

He's thinking he may need to move back someday and doesn't want to close the AW door if at all possible.

Thanks guys.

Tell him to make sure he has copies of all his registration paperwork, and perhaps to keep is CA DL active if possible. The latter is unsubstantiated though, I just remember reading on here once that the AW registrations are tied to your DL.

With the copies of his AW reg paperwork he'd be fine to return to CA with his already registered AWs, but he will not be able to bring any new AWs into the state should he return.

AW registration can only be ended by request of the registrant or death of the registrant and maybe if the registrant becomes disqualified to own firearms.
