IANAL but I have read what I can find about CA gun laws and the way I read it if you establish residency in CA within 60 days you need to register your handguns as an importer.
I personally don't UOC in CA because I am a resident of ID and go back and forth between ID & CA and do not intend to register my handguns here. If during an eCheck they ran your weapons serial it changes some of the possible penalties if the gun is not registered in CA and they charged you.
Do not bring hi cap magazines into CA - get 10 round mags for use during your visit.
