When I buy a rifle in this state, how long does "the man" keep that record? I know the 4473 that I fill out is kept with the dealer, but when the background check is run, how long do they keep a record that I purchased a firearm? I have heard it must be destroyed within 48 hours, and other have said 30 days. Whats the deal and where can I find it in writing?

Once they have your records, they assign an agent to you, to do local phone taps, case your place out, and tail you for the first year. After that their activities slow down to a once a month thing, and after 10 years they reduce it to a once a year suprise check-up. The problem right now is that they don't have enough agents, each agents is assigned 10 suspects. As their suspects move to the once a year check up, they are assigned a new one to replace him. You have to understand after ten years their case load keeps on growing, and growing. At the rate that Caifornians are buying guns they cannot keep up this pace. There is not enough money in the budget to continue to hire at this pace, I have heard that some guys are trying to track fifty people at once. All the agents complain about is that we are spending too much money on the education system, and not enough on tracking possible criminals. See, once you buy a gun in Cali, you are now considered a potential criminal.

I'm not sure if all this info is correct, I pulled this from a website, called the blackhelicopterfiles.com

I find that hard to believe.

FWIW, and it may not be worth anything--but a fella who worked at the Gun Shop in Lancaster told me Kali DOJ keeps the DROS for 30 years.

I told them the 4473 was enough for me, I'll let NC get some sales tax money from me when I left kali.

30 days for rifle only my friend.Hanguns in Cali are registered so they stay on file until you sell it to someone else.
