My freind in idaho has a python that another bud here in cali wants. Can idaho gift the pistol to his dad here in cali, and then the bud can purchase from idahos dad?

I don't think the express goal of someone outside the family acquiring the Python in CA should be the thought here. If the relative in CA later decides to sell it, that should be uncoordinated decision and his alone.

Within CA, interfamiliar transfers between any of grandparent, parent or child (and no other relations allowed, including brother/sister, cousin, aunt/uncle, etc.) of non-Rostered handguns are legal. The recipient in CA needs to get an HSC card. Normally he'd also have to fill out a form available on DOJ website (Firearms Transfer by Operation of Law, I believe) - but this is a bit different since it crosses state lines.

Because this is happening across state lines between the two family members, it *must* go thru a CA FFL dealer to keep the Feds/BATF happy. The FFL dealer will have to run DROS and you will be exempt on family transfer basis - I don't think there will be a 10 day wait.

After that, a Californian now legally has a nice non-Rostered Colt Python.

Maybe he shoots it, maybe he decides to sell it, who knows?
