Default Are LEO's exempt from DROS?

An LEO friend of mine wants to purchase a handgun from me. But neither of us know if LEO's are exempt from DROS.

We know he's exempt from the Handgun Safety Certificate requirement, but not DROS.

Anyone know?

Thanks!

There's no special exemption from DROS or PPT for LEOs. We get an exemption from the HSC and 1 in 30 by virtue of employment. With certification from the agency, we can get exemption from the 10 day wait.

If you're both California residents, you need to go through the PPT process.

If LE brings a letter from their Supervisor, stating that the particular gun is intended for duty use, then the 10 day wait does not apply. Some department require the letter to state the make, model, ser #. He should check with his dept policy for the particulars.

Either way, the DROS will happen.

Another "back in the day...." story:

Used to be about 20+ years ago, just a badge and ID card and the gun went home the same day you picked it out from the glass counter.

"Hope and Change" wasn't just an Obama scheme. Other administrations have also wrecked good things we used to have.
