Default Need/How to register

Hi Folks...I apologize for the length of this post...I hope you all can help me.
Back in 1977/78 I took the 832 P.C. course with SFPD. Because of Prop.13 we had to provide our own guns. At that time a friend on the PD told me his friend, a Sheriff, was selling his .357 service revolver and would I want to buy it. Sure I needed my own gun and I felt safe buying it from an officer. The gun was never registered and I don't remember ever getting a receipt. I have shot at the range many times however it has been locked and stored away now for years. My son is almost 18 and I want to teach him how to shoot. Can I take my gun to the range without it being registered? If not how do I go about registering it? Can I purchase ammo to shoot at the range (is it still called wad cutters)? Also would I be able to take him to shoot at a range if he is under 21? I am in Roseville and really don't know where a good range is located. Any help you all can provide would be really appreciated. Thanks so much!

Hi, IMO, you are OK to take the gun shooting at the range. You are the legal owner. However, I am not sure what the process was back then (dros/no dros, waiting period, registration, etc.). I am sure someone will interject and enlighten us.

As far as a range to shoot, I always recommend Lincoln Rifle Club aka Dillman range. It is off the old hey 65 just past downtown Lincoln (now Lincoln way). It is $10 per person to shoot for non members and the people are very friendly. Since it is your son, he is ok to shoot with you. Just follow the range rules and you will be fine. You have to bring your own ammo, eye and ear protection. Ammo will be a pain for you to find if you already don't have any. Not much out there.

You can register your handgun via mail to DOJ. There is a form to fill out and you mail in some $ as well. Not sure if this is necessary until you find out more information.

May see you there one day.

Found this on Wiki:

.32 ACP*full metal jacket,*.32 S&W Long*wadcutter,*.380 ACP*jacketedhollow point*(L-R)

A*wadcutter*is a special-purpose flat-fronted*bullet*specially designed for shooting paper targets, usually at close range and at subsonic velocities typically under approximately 900*ft/s (274*m/s). Wadcutters have also found favor for use in self-defense guns, such as .38 calibersnub-nosed revolvers, where due to short barrel lengths, maximum bullet velocities are usually low, typically under 900*ft/s (274*m/s), and improved lethality is desired. Wadcutters are often used inhandgun*and*airgun*competitions.

+1 for the Dillman range in lincoln.Very friendly to newcomers. Im am not sure of the laws on that gun, however, i would advise that you follow all the laws transporting the gun... unloaded in a locked container, in the trunk if u have one. No one at the range will question your gun as long as you are safe.

As far as getting ammo, a gun store would be your best bet, as all walmarts big 5 and other big chains have sold out of regular handgun ammo.

Good luck!

Registration of Handguns is not required by law in CA. You bought the firearm legally before CA law required that all handgun sales go through a FFL and be recorded by the CA DOJ. There is no requirement that you have a receipt or proof of ownership. No one will ask to see your "Gun Registration."

# 26 How do I know if my firearms need to be registered?

There is no firearm registration requirement in California except for assault weapon owners and personal handgun importers. However, you may submit a Firearm Ownership Record to the DOJ for any firearm you own. Having a Firearm Ownership Record on file with the DOJ may help in the return of your firearm if it is lost or stolen. With very few and specific exceptions, all firearm transactions must be conducted through a firearms dealer.

It is unlawful for a minor to possess a handgun unless one of the following circumstances exists:
the minor is accompanied by his or her parent or legal guardian and the minor is actively engaged in a lawful recreational sporting, ranching, or hunting activity, or a motion picture, television, or other entertainment event;
the minor is accompanied by a responsible adult and has prior written consent of his or her parent or legal guardian and is involved in one of the activities cited above; and
the minor is at least 16 years of age, has prior written consent of his or her parent or legal guardian, and the minor is involved in one of the activities cited above.
It is unlawful for a minor to possess live ammunition unless one of the following circumstances exists:
the minor has the written consent of his or her parent or legal guardian to possess live ammunition;
the minor is accompanied by his or her parent or legal guardian;
the minor is actively engaged in, or is going to or from, a lawful recreational sport,
including, but not limited to, competitive shooting, or agricultural, ranching, or hunting activity, the nature of which involves the use of a firearm. (Penal Code 12101.)


We are in the midst of the Second Great Obama Gun and Ammo Buying Frenzy. Normal supplies of ammunition are presently disrupted. Walmart is sometimes a good bet. Call your local Gun Shop to see what they have. If you spend a good deal of time online you might find something. Wadcutters might be more difficult to find than regular FMJ.

Good Luck!

If you can't find any ammo please drop me a PM. I may have a box or two of .357 lying around here somewhere.
