Was left to me after my dad passed away a few years ago, I had no idea how/when he aquired it. I kinda had doubts on if he possesed it legally if ya get my drift. I took a gamble and registered it via the CALDOJ Interfamily transfer form. (cost me $19 but remains in my possesion) Took almost 2 months but I got a letter stating it's official registered to me. So My new pistol. It's in .25 and completely useless, but so am I. Cliffs: Pops died, unsure if gun was legal, registered it to me, no problems.
