In the new numbering, the law is PC 27535. Indeed, it does say 'purchase'

(6) Any motion picture, television, or video production company or

pursuant to Article 1 (commencing with Section 26700) of Chapter 2.
(10) The exchange of a handgun where the dealer purchased that
firearm from the person seeking the exchange within the 30-day period
immediately preceding the date of exchange or replacement.
(11) The replacement of a handgun when the person's handgun was

which the person resides.
(12) The return of any handgun to its owner.
(13) A community college that is certified by the Commission on
Peace Officer Standards and Training to present the law enforcement
academy basic course or other commission-certified law enforcement
However, you're missing something: an 'application to purchase' is a legal term, from PC 16190
As used in Article 2 (commencing with Section 26800) of
Chapter 2 of Division 6 of Title 4, and in Article 1 (commencing with
Section 27500) of Chapter 4 of Division 6 of Title 4, "application
to purchase"
means either of the following:
(a) The initial completion of the register by the purchaser,
transferee, or person being loaned a firearm, as required by Section
(b) The initial completion and transmission to the Department of
Justice of the record of electronic or telephonic transfer by the
dealer on the purchaser, transferee, or person being loaned a
firearm, as required by Section 28215.
Feds require interstate to go through FFL.

CA FFL must use DROS. (PC 28100)

DROS is legally the same as 'application to purchase'.

It's illegal to submit more than one 'application to purchase' for a handgun in 30 days, unless the transaction is on the list of exceptions in 27535.

Intrafamilial handgun transfer is not on the list of exceptions there, nor in the list of transactions which are exempt from the 10-day wait and therefore exempt from 1-in-30 as specified in 27535(b)(7), nor in the PPT exception of 28050.

Therefore, interstate intrafamilial handgun transfer is subject to 1 in 30 days.
No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems - of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.

I've been saying that for years ...

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.
