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.

#2, here is the BATFE FAQ.

#3, here is the CFLC FAQ (out of state dealers, it is too easy to use to stop selling to CA!).

#4, when to collect Sales Tax.

#5, proof of residency requirements.

#6, how do I handle PPTs?

#7, how do I handle the lock (FSD) requirements?

#8, do I have to send my FFL to non-licensees?

#9, as an out of state dealer, what can I ship into CA?

#10, what are the shipping rules in general for firearms?

#11, What are the perks of being an FFL in CA?

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?

#13, Can you add long guns to a handgun DROS?

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.
