I am going to buy a handgun from my Uncle. We both live in California. Do we need to go to an FFL for a family transfer?

Yep.

Bummer. I found a federal Intra-Family transfer form that you just sent to the DOJ directly with a small processing fee but it apparently only works for parent>child and spouse>spouse transfers. I called a gun dealer and they verified the need to go through an FFL holder. They charge $35 which seems reasonable compared to some other fees I've been quoted.

Thanks for the help.

for a transfer like that does it have to be on the californias approved handgun list?

No. Private party transfers are exempt from the list.

That's a California DOJ form, not a Federal form.

The cost is regulated by state law.

In California you are supposed to turn the gun in to the local gun store (to hold) and file the California DOJ paperwork (about $35) and go back a gets ya gun is 15 days.
