Also, is the FFL the same as for concealed carry?---I don't want to carry on my body, just in the car to target practice with.---Thanks
to purchase a handgun you will need a handgun safety certificate which you can get at a gun store or shooting range that offers the test. Then you go through the same DROS procedure and wait the 10 days, etc.
FFL = Federal Firearms License, has nothing to do with CCW (concealed carry). Permits for CCW will depend on your county, and as far as I know it's still not very easy to get one in CA.
