Default PPT Inherited Handguns

Hello friends,

I am a new CA FFL and something has come up. A friend of mine received several handguns and long guns from his brother's estate after his brother died. The guns are not old, having been legally bought by the brother after the year 2000. My friend would like to transfer one of the handguns to one of his loyal employees. Does my friend have to register an inherited handgun to his own name before he can transfer it to someone else? Or can I just do a normal PPT for them through DROS?

At the risk of complicating matters, the man who wishes to acquire the handgun is not a US citizen, but does have a Green Card and has lived in California for many years and has a verified address and a CA drivers license.

Can anyone help me muddle through this process? I would certainly appreciate the help!

--Malcolm

Legally...
Within in 30 days of acquiring the handguns from his brother's estate, your friend needed to file a Report of Operation of Law with CA DOJ, in order to report the transfer of the handguns. However, there is no penalty for filing after the 30 day time period.

Your friend would conduct a PPT in order to sell it to another person.

The DOJ does not run the seller's ID unless the buyer is delayed or denied. Further, the DOJ does not care who had the gun before.

So although the brother should have legally registered those handguns in the allotted time, there is no practical consequence of simply taking the handgun in to PPT. Just be sure to use a resident alien friendly gun shop and don't talk about who the gun really belonged to. Talking too much at a gun store can turn your fairly lawful business into a "we don't want to handle that".

Thank you Quiet and TenPercentFirearms for your responses. I am an FFL so we won't need to visit a gun store. I'll just run the buyer through DROS and leave it at that. Thanks again!
