Q: Regarding military personnel with PCS orders for handguns in CA. I am clear on the procedure outlined in Help Desk Solution# 00004180. My question is, in the past, CA DOJ training sessions stated that Military orders ARE secondary proof of residency if they live ON base. Now we are being told by the last field inspector that it must state on the orders the barracks or building number that they live in to be able to use the orders for that. Not all orders have much detail and all Military Services have different order formats, some more detailed than others. And some special units don’t have any information on them. Also, for example a sailor stationed on a ship just has the ship as his address and it is stated as such on his orders but we have been told he needs more than just the ship and base, even though there is no such thing that tells us what deck or bunk number he is in. For almost all service members, those that live on base have no other documents that are acceptable according to published guidelines on the DOJ website. Are there any other written guidelines on this subject from DOJ?
