I searched and came up empty, must have not had the right keyword.:confused: Anyway, I purchased a gun 10 days ago today; but alas I didn't have any utility bills to show I've been at the same address.
I'm 19 and of course I keep no credit card/cell phone bill statements for more than the time it takes to either shred it, or toss it.

So today at 3:31 I'm going to go pick up my gun, I was just wondering if anyone knew if I could just use my rent reciepts? Its the only thing I hold onto, and of course its from my parents. They're just some cheap reciepts I bought so I could remember if I paid rent or not lol. TIA for any replies.


***EDIT - I am a California resident***

Is this a California thing? Here in NC, a driver's license is sufficient to show your residency.

If youve already filled out the paperwork you should be good to go as far as residency.

The clerk @ Big 5 wrote on the invoice to pick the gun up " Must show 3 months utility bills"

Can you get your utility to send you a record of the utility bills? They ought to help you out with that. Or pay your bills online so you have a record of the ebills.

93EJ1,

Since you are nineteen, I assume you are buying a long gun. The residency requirement applies to handguns. Your dealer should have Internet connection and can go to this webpage: DOJ Frequently Asked Questions. (http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/dlrfaqs.htm#General)

What documentation is acceptable to demonstrate proof of residency for handgun purchasers?

* Utility bill from within the past three months that bears on its face the individual's name and either of the following:
1. The individual's current residential address as declared on the Dealer's Record of Sale (DROS) form

2. or The individual's residential address as it appears on his or her California Driver License or California Identification Card, or change of address attachment thereto.
"Utility bill" means a statement of charges for providing service to the individual's residence by either a physical connection (i.e., hard wired telephone connection or cable connection, or a water or gas pipeline connection) or a telemetric connection (i.e., satellite television or radio broadcast service) to a non-mobile, fixed antenna reception device.

* Residential lease that bears the individual's name and either of the following:
1. The individual's current residential address as declared on the Dealer's Record of Sale (DROS) form
