Default No confirmation of transfer from DOJ

Just after Thanksgiving (so 11/2017) I filled out the OpLaw form for Intra-familial Firearm Transfer form to transfer about 5 long guns from my father to myself. I mailed it that weekend, along with a $19 check. Although I didn't make a photocopy of the form I filled out by hand (which I'm now regretting), I'm fairly certain I completed it properly.

I've been waiting to actually take possession of the weapons until I get DOJ confirmation that they acknowledge the transfer has occurred and I am good to go. I know I didn't have to wait, but I just want to play it safe, plus I'm in no rush. I highly doubt that I would be denied in taking possession, since I had done a Federal records request (Livescan), followed by a CA PFEC which confirmed that I am eligible to both purchase and possess firearms, and this was at most a month before I sent in the form (have had no incidents with LE since then, except a warning with no ticket for not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign).

One caveat is that I didn't have $19 in my checking account when they cashed the check (don't ask) and it withdrew the $19 anyway, plus a $34 overdraft fee. This happened on December 7, which means that they cashed my check over a month ago. Is there any chance the insufficient funds caused an issue? I wouldn't think so since the money got taken out of my account anyway.

Part of me is thinking they're super backed up because of everyone scrambling to register their AWs. Maybe I'm just overthinking it. Any help is much appreciated!



TL;DR DOJ cashed a check for a OpLaw transfer on 12/7/2017 and I have yet to receive a letter confirmation. Is there a way other than just waiting that I can get a confirmation that I'm good to go ?

If you want the acknowledgement, you just have to wait.

But the paperwork documents an action already taken. Your obligation is to properly submit the info and fee; once you drop it in the mailbox, you have met the requirement.

It could be 100 days to receive those confirmation letters. One will arrive for each individual gun.

Be well
Bob.

Typically takes 3-4 months (after the check is cashed) for the CA DOJ confirmation letter to arrive.

Good to know. I've been checking the mailbox everyday hoping it will arrive. I'll stop holding my breath then
