That sounds like a problem.

Inheritance is exempt from using an FFL on an interstate transfer. If your grandfather came to CA and handed you the revolver, he clearly was still around (and long may he be so!) and 'inheritance' does not apply.

Should have both gone to a CA FFL and done the interstate transfer there. But shipment from WI to a CA FFL (who understood what was happening and was expecting the gun) would also have worked.

Sometimes I forget: anything I post relative to CA law is in the light of current law, as of the date of the post.

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.
