Also, I talked to the DOJ. And they said it was perfectly legal to cross state lines with a family members firearm. Even if it is not in my name yet. He also said I just need to fill out the form and make sure I put down my hand gun safety permit number on the form. He also said it will take around 6-8 weeks for paperwork to be complete and that I don't have to wait. I can go pick it up.
Now I'm confused.
you talked to CADOJ, not federal DOJ.
CADOJ only concerns itself with CA law
, not federal law. CADOJ told you correctly that it was not a violation of CA law for you to cross state lines with your mother's firearm that you want to do an intrafamily transfer to yourself. FIll out the CADOJ form with $19 and CA is happy. Their advice, even though it is CA-legal, is not federally legal when the transferor is a resident of another state. You'd need to check with NV and the feds to see if your mother is still a CA resident or is not an NV resident. Just because your ID is from your old state doesn't necessarily make you still a resident of that old state.
