This is the question I have posed on my thread about Handguns showing up in AFS on routine traffic stops etc. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...80#post9479880
It seems that if someone established an NFA trust and put you in it, then went ahead and DROS'd a pistol (or in this case any gun after Jan. 2014) you wouldn't be in the California registry but still a legal owner of a registered pistol in California.
