DROS Requirements for WBT

DROS stands for Dealer Record Of Sale. Its the background check for California gun purchases. It also manages the 10 day wait and registeres the gun to you upon pick up. Its managed by the CA department of justice. More info can be found here: https://oag.ca.gov/firearms

All firearms stores are slightly different. These requirements are what we require:

Documents Needed for DROS:

FOR ALL RIFLES & PISTOLS:

  • A valid CA issued ID or Driver’s license. 

(MUST PRESENT ACTUAL CARD, NO COPIES OR INTERIM DOCUMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED)

If you have a “Federal Limits Apply”  ID or DL, you must present proof of citizenship such as a valid passport of birth certificate. 

If your address is INCORRECT on the CA ID or DL, you MUST provide one of the following with the correct address before we can submit the DROS:

  • DMV Vehicle Registration (Must be Current)
  • Guard Card/Firearms Card/CCW

Additional Document for PISTOLS:

In addition to the above requirements, customers wishing to purchase a pistol must also provide a 2nd proof of residence in addition to their CA Issued Driver’s License or ID Card. Only the following are acceptable:

  • Utility Bill for a “Hard Wired” service. Example: Electric/Gas/Water/Internet (Must be current within 2 months)
  • DMV Vehicle Registration (Must be Current)
  • Signed Lease Agreement

For Active Duty Military, you will need your ID card and a copy of your orders. You must be stationed in CA. NO TDY/TAD!

In addition to the above, you will need a Firearms Safety Card. If you do not have an FSC, WBT can issue you one. Please Read the following study guide and be prepared to take a 30-question test. The cost for an FSC is $25. The card is good for 5 years.
