    what could i use as proof of residency? my car registration is under company name, all the utilities are under my parents names since i am currently living at home. i asked if a credit card bill would work, they said no. would a letter/notice from my college work? or a cellphone bill?

    i just purchased a subcompace xd40 and they're just waiting for me to show my proof of residency so i can begin my wait period. any suggestions?

    If a cc bill didnt work, then I doubt a cell phone bill would work.

    How'd you purchase a handgun w/o an ID?

    They must have shown an Identification Card when the order was placed. Don't know what the waiting period is if there is any at their state. Having just a drivers License won't do you much good. You need a state issued ID and a proof of residency such as Car registration. U might want to try a PayCheck Stub or an insurance card. You could only buy a handgun in the state you claim residence. Say you live in California. You can't go to Nevada an legally buy a handgun at a firearms store over there. They could run your background check, fill out all your papework, vice versa without showing your proof of residency. They won't release the gun till you show proof of residency though.
