Hello, I have been reading for a few months and finally decided to register. I was looking at some guns last week seeing what I might want as the first gun I buy myself and the salesmen said that a drivers license is required to buy a gun in california, and that an ID would not work. Is this true? From what i have read on the attorney generals website all that is needed is proof of age either a DL, ID, or Military ID. Thanks.

A CA-issued DL or a CA-issued ID will work. Military ID should also work.

For buying a handgun, you need a HSC card, which is obtainable at any gun store, and proof of CA residency (utility bill or car registration, among others).

You will run into ALL KINDS of intrepretations of the law at gun shops. Some of them will not bat an eye at the regulations and bend the laws, some go the other direction and make up stuff to try to protect themselves from the JBTs at the DOJ. If your local gunshop is giving you grief, find another. A great way to find FFLs are through the auction sites like gunbroker.com, shotgunnews.com, gunsamerica.com. Spend a little time looking at prices, and try to find a dealer that will work with you. Vote with your dollars!!

I used my pay stub, which has my address, as my POR.

The HSC is a $25 fee and is a "lifetime" card.

Yes, but only if you plan on living only five years.

smokey, you must have confused the HSC with the old BFSC.

Yeah I started to say... Also you are exempted from if you're serving in any part of the military.

A pay stub will work? I've been at two that wouldn't even accept a paystub with my address on it as a second form of ID on top of my DL.

Car registration works for mine, assuming your drive to your FFL and you own your car and your registration is up to date. And your DL, of course.
