California Law Question

I have a 9mm handgun in my possession that was given to me by my father some time in the 1990 time frame. It's likely he bought it (legally) in another state but he gave it to me in California and it has remained in California ever since. It has two original 15 round magazines. It is unregistered. He has since passed away.

I've tried to find this circumstance in California law but haven't had any luck. Can anyone tell me if I am required to register this firearm in California? Also, if I declare it and pack it in my checked luggage to attend an out-of-state firearms training course, am I guilty of importing it illegally when I return to California?

And yes, I do realize this is a forum and that I should seek advise of counsel. Just looking for informed opinions. Thanks!
