I am a trapshooter at a club in California. My trap gun is old (not registered). I have had it since the 70’s. I needed ammo and complete the initial $19 background check, passed and went back to purchase shells. No problem. A few weeks later, I returned, paid the $1 fee and my purchase was denied. No reason. I was told to contact DOJ/CFARS. It is impossible to contact them. If you call the number on the website, it’s a huge phone queue and lots of referrals to other numbers/websites. Believe me, I tried them all. A FFL person at my club told me that I needed to have a record/registered firearm on record in order to buy ammo, so I filled out the form, sent in $19 check on 8/29/19 and waited. The check was cashed on 9/5/19. On 9/28/19, I received a letter asking me to clarify where I got the 12 ga Beretta (from 1970’s). I indicated “spouse” and returned by mail the same day. It is now 2/13/20 and I haven’t heard anything. I can’t contact them by phone. You can’t talk to a person or email them to inquire. Basically, they took my money. I am so frustrated and don’t know what to do. I am just a recreational trap shooter, squeaky clean record, model citizen. I cannot buy ammo, except at my club. Any suggestions? Does anyone have a direct line to Sacramento? I have a feeling this has happened to others.
