What do I need to do to buy ammunition in California?
All ammunition purchases require a background check. Choose which statement best fits your situation:
I have purchased a firearm or had a firearm registered in my name within the last five years.
My address is the same as when I purchased my firearm.
You should be eligible for the Standard Background Check.
It costs $1 and the approval should be immediate.
My address has changed since I last purchased a firearm.
You must update your address in the California Firearm Application Reporting System (CFARS) before you are eligible for the Standard Background Check.
I have not purchased a firearm or had a firearm registered in my name within the last five years.
If you are a California resident, you may purchase ammunition using the Basic Background Check.
It costs $19. You must wait until DOJ approves the background check before you may take your ammunition with you. It may take 20 minutes. It may take 2 weeks. We will notify you once DOJ has given us a determination of your background check status.
You must bring a valid California Real ID (golden bear stamped in the top right corner of the ID)
What if my driver license says “Federal Limits Apply”?
You must also provide a certified copy of your birth certificate or a valid U.S. passport before the firearm is released to you.
If your current legal name does not match the birth certificate, you must also bring a proof of your legal name change (i.e. marriage certificate, divorce decree, court order, etc.)
