NCGV will handle Intra-Familial Transfers when the firearm is being SHIPPED directly to us from out-of-state (P.C.16720).  If the firearm has already been acquired by the new family member then they must complete the Intra-Familial Transfer Paper Form or complete online in CFARS and register directly with CA DOJ within 30 days (P.C. 27875).

​These are the ONLY family relationships that qualify:

  • Parent > Child
  • Child > Parent
  • Grandparent > Grandchild
  • Grandchild > Grandparent

​Intra-Familial Transfers are EXEMPT from the CA DOJ Handgun Roster.

​Intra-Familial Transfers are EXEMPT from the One Handgun/Rifle Per 30 Day Limit.
