Default FFL FAQ Master Thread (all dealer questions look here first!)

Ok, for simplicity's sake, here are all of the most commonly asked questions that dealers need to know. A master thread of all of our pooled Calguns information.

#1, here is the CA DOJ FAQ. http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/dlrfaqs.php

#2, here is the BATFE FAQ. http://www.atf.gov/firearms/industry/

#3, here is the CFLC FAQ (out of state dealers, it is too easy to use to stop selling to CA!). http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/cflcfaqs.php

#4, when to collect Sales Tax. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=366781

#5, proof of residency requirements. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=327217

#6, how do I handle PPTs? http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=117004

#7, how do I handle the lock (FSD) requirements? http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=254024

#8, do I have to send my FFL to non-licensees? http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=381561

#9, as an out of state dealer, what can I ship into CA? http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?p=6755729

#10, what are the shipping rules in general for firearms? http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...4#post10218124

#11, What are the perks of being an FFL in CA? http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?p=6949087

For these next two answers, they are still a debatable topic. I would advise any dealer not comfortable doing either of these two things, simply not do them. The key is to create a policy and have it in writing for customers to know before hand. Communication is the key.

#12, can you add long guns to a DROS? http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=425903

#13, Can you add long guns to a handgun DROS? http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=230841

As we decide that there are anymore questions that need a sticky, we will add them here. If you have a new question not covered here, please ask in a new thread. If it is a common one, we will reference that thread here.

Thank you everyone.
