No Dean you can't. Spend some time researching the stickies here. Lots of info.
Your fathers peace officer exemptions apply to him and him alone. You also posted this in the wrong forum. Lots of reading "here" and attention to details will help you navigate the site.

Just a note...

If it's in your fathers name, then it's his. It's an important legal point. Till your of legal age you can't own a handgun. Your father is not a "straw buyer" on your behalf.

He, being a leo can shoot it with the mags of his choice. If you go with him to the range you can shoot the gun with him using whatever you have available.

Till your 21 I'd be hecka cautious about shooting your father's pistol in any way that might reflect poorly on him. Talk it over with him some.

A person can not buy a handgun until they are 21, but their parents can buy them one and transfer it to them using the intrafamilial transfer form from the CA DOJ. An HSC card is needed. This means that a person 18-21 can actually own a handgun.

dean93,

Check with your local FFL and discuss it with your father.

A FFL is not required to transfer a firearm from father to son.

Kemasa,

Excuse me if I don't know the latest deals.

I was suggesting that the dean93 work together with his father on the questions regarding the paperwork involved in the ownership matter as well as the magazine issue. It would give them an opportunity to discuss the question he raised here as well as work together on it.

As you pointed out an HSC card may be needed so I was suggesting that a good place to do that is at your local gun store. Both to pick up the pamphlet to study the questions prior to taking the test and to take the test. Far as I know you can't take the test or show the safe gun handling part online or by sending in a video or going to the DMV. So the local gunatorium (FFL) is, in my opinion a good place for that. It also gives a person a chance to get more familiar with the folks who work there which is always useful in my experience. Maybe there is a way to do those things by mail or online, I frankly don't know.

I do think that dean93 has already been working with his folks closely on these things, getting his first handgun, and that continuing to do so is a good course of action. Whenever I went to a gun store with my father it was a good experience, I believe it has been and hope it will continue to be for dean93 as well.

But on the other hand if it can all be done by mail or online then a fella could avoid the time with his father or the being at a gun store.

Yes, the HSC needs to be done at a FFL, but the FFL may not be familiar with the intrafamilial form and due to that, they may get incorrect information.

The pamphlet can be downloaded for free from the CA DOJ web site, which is better option. Yes, they would have to take the test at a FFL, but some FFLs won't issue the HSC unless they are selling a firearm or doing a transfer.

An intrafamlial transfer does not require the safe handling demonstration. For all you know, he might already have a HSC card.

No, you were being stupid and trying to attack, but you don't have enough of a clue to know when to keep quiet and you don't know what you are talking about.
