BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives)The federal agency responsible for monitoring Federal Firearms Licensees and firearms businesses. http://www.atf.gov/firearms/
CA DOJ (California Department of Justice)The state agency responsible for monitoring Federal Firearms Licensees and firearms business. http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/
CFD (California Firearms Dealer)The CFD number is a unique number assigned by the CA DOJ to each firearms dealer location in California that the CA DOJ recognizes as fully licensed pursuant to PC Section 12071. The CFD number serves as the dealer's identifier for submitting DROS information and for other business dealings with the CA DOJ.
DROS (Dealer Record of Sale)The State of California requires all long gun and handgun transactions to be processed electronically through the CA DOJ. DROS fees for a single handgun transaction are $25. DROS fees for each additional handgun are $21. Long gun DROS fees are a $25 flat fee for one or more long guns.
FFL (Federal Firearms License or Licensee)The federal government requires all interstate firearms transactions to be processed through a FFL. UG Imports has a Class 01 FFL that enables them to receive and ship firearms over state lines. Private parties can ship firearms over state lines as long as the firearm is sent to a FFL dealer. Private parties cannot accept firearms from other states and must go through a FFL dealer.
FSD (Firearms Safety Device)The State of California in their infinite wisdom has determined that only certain "gun locks" are good enough to put on a firearm and as a result if you buy a "gun lock" in California, it has to be on the Roster of Firearms Safety Devices Certified for Sale.
HSC (Handgun Safety Certificate)The Handgun Safety Certificate is a state mandated program that was developed to make sure that individuals purchasing handguns demonstrate safe handgun handling and storage procedures. In order to purchase a handgun in California, you must have a HSC or meet an appropriate exemption classification. The HSC costs $25 and is valid for five years from the date of issuance. You must also demonstrate a "safe handling demonstration" in front of a CA DOJ certified instructor prior to taking possession of a handgun. View the CA DOJ HSC FAQ.
LPKs (Lower Parts Kits)For Stripped California Legal Self-Loading .223 Lower Receivers, you need a lower parts kit set so you can add the pins, springs, hammer, selector, and pistol grip to the rifle. They generally sell anywhere from $50-$60. See our Uppers Pages for more information.
OLL (Off List Lower)Off List Lower refers to a California Legal AR-15 or AK-47 receiver that is not listed on the Kasler List and therefore is legal for purchase in California. These lower receivers must still comply with the generic features ban of SB-23. See the Calguns.net A California AR/AK “Series” Assault Weapon FAQ for more information.
PPT (Private Party Transfer)A private party transfer is a firearm transfer from one unlicensed California resident to another unlicensed resident. A private party transfer fee is mandated by the state to be $35. Private party transfers are not transactions between UG Imports and any other individual or FFL holder.
