    Need some help, does gun....

    A friend of mine would really like to join us on the 15th in san Diego and he would like to carry. So my question is, does the gun you carry have to be registered in your name in order to be able to carry it. His grandfather passed away and he inherited his guns. But they haven't been transferred into his name yet.

    I don't believe there is any legal code saying it has to be registered to you.

    If it is a "loaner" you can have it for 30 days as long as you have a HSC.

    They aren't allowed to search for the serial number and run it, so odds are this would not even come up as an issue.

    The only problem that could crop up is if he is somehow prosecuted for Unlawful Concealed Carry. This moves the punishment from a misdemeanor first offense to a "wobbler" - aka could be prosecuted as a felony.

    Note that he could avoid the wobbler status if he didn't carry ammo for it...

    12025. (a) A person is guilty of carrying a concealed firearm when
    he or she does any of the following:
    ...
    (6) By imprisonment in the state prison, or by imprisonment in a
    county jail not to exceed one year, by a fine not to exceed one
    thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment if
    both of the following conditions are met:
    (A) Both the pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of being
    concealed upon the person and the unexpended ammunition capable of
    being discharged from that firearm are either in the immediate
    possession of the person or readily accessible to that person, or the
    pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of being concealed upon
    the person is loaded as defined in subdivision (g) of Section 12031.
    (B) The person is not listed with the Department of Justice
    pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (c) of Section 11106, as the
    registered owner of that pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable
    of being concealed upon the person.

    That sounds like a slippery slope he would probably rather not risk going down. Thanks.

    Just incase your friend doesn't have the info handy and he desires to register anything, he can use this form from the CA DoJ http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/forms/pdf/oplaw.pdf

    He was going to attend anyway, but just a few hours ago he got called into work for tomorrow. He is trying to get out of, and if he does I know he would be down to be the camera guy.

    No requirement to have the gun registered to you to carry.
