California law

In California am I allowed to lend my pistol to my son who lives 150 miles from me in California?

What does California law say about lending pistols to other relatives?

Yes, with the proper paperwork and $19

Can I give a firearm to my adult child? Can he/she give it back to me later?
Yes, as long as the adult child receiving the firearm is not in a prohibited category [PDF 10 kb / 1 pg] and the firearm is a legal firearm to possess, the transfer of a firearm between a parent and child or a grandparent and grandchild is exempt from the dealer transfer requirement. However, if the firearm is a handgun, you must submit a Report of Operation of Law or Intra-Familial Handgun Transaction [PDF 481 kb / 2 pg] and $19 fee to the DOJ within 30 days. Assault weapons may not be transferred in this fashion. See Penal Code section 12285, subdivision (b).

(PC section 12078(c))

Neither the form or the instructions tell me if the data to be entered on the form are for the father(current owner) or the son(new owner). Does anyone know the answer to this question?

If the loan is for less than 30 days, no paperwork at all is required.
