So my grandfather wants to give me his .45cal handgun he used in WWII. It is truly an honor for him to besot such a gift to me. He had never registered it. When he got back from the war, he said they did not require that he register it and just let him keep it. So the gun is unregistered.

Can it be registered?
If so, how does this process work?
If it cannot, what "should" happen to the gun?
Is there any way to remedy the situation?
Do we have to go through a DROS?
Any additional information I should know?

If there is an article or such that explains this, lead me there :)

Thanks

Since its from WWII i would assume it falls under C&R right?

If your grandfather lives in CA...

...You need to have a HSC or be qualified for an exemption for having a HSC.
...He gives you the handgun.
...You fill out this document http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/forms/pdf/oplaw.pdf and mail $19 to CA DOJ.
...Enjoy your gift.

Thank you so much! I was thinking of the worst...

Precise and to the point, 100% correct!
