Default California Gun Registration

I am new to the forum and have a few questions. What year did California start requiring private party sales of handguns to be registered? I am curious if my aquisitions years ago pre-date the state requirements.
Thanks - Snaproll

1991 was the year it was started.

Default California Gun Registration

Appreciate the response.. My handguns pre-date 1991. Last question, I recently applied for a CCW and listed two of my old S&W Model 36's I aquired in the 70's. Neither are registered. Do they need to be registered for the CCW Permit. Thanks...

That depends on the county you apply in. In Orange County yes they must be registered.

You can register your guns using this form:

Default California Gun Laws

I appreciate the warm welcome. A CCW Instructor in Oxnard suggested I join CALCCW due to the knowledge of it's many members. I recently applied for a CCW Permit in Ventura County and hope it will be granted. Appears to be a long process from what I gather taking 4 to 12 months. Appreciate the support.

Welcome aboard snaproll. Great question. Are'nt these guys and gals just great. You're CCW instructor sent you to the right place. I'd like to expand on this question. What year did CA start to register handgun purchases, other than private sales? I assume it was well before 1991.

Dealer Sales for registered guns was started in the late 1960's for handguns only. Rifles and Shotguns was in the late 80's

I just registered one a couple of months ago and I do not recall reading anything about sending in my weapon. I sent only the paperwork and the $19. I received a confirmation letter a couple of weeks ago saying that the handgun was now registered. No muss, no fuss.

You just send in the paperwork with the firearm information filled out, along with a check for $19 (per firearm, I believe) and they'll send you back a confirmation letter. You do NOT have to send the firearm itself to Sacramento, and indeed you should not send it to Sacramento.
