Effective July 1, 2019, ammunition purchases now require a background check. While there are a few exceptions to the required ammunition eligibility check (firearms dealers, law enforcement, etc.), almost all California residents are required to pass an eligibility check via one of three different methods.
The Standard Ammunition Eligibility Check
How do you know if you have an AFS record?
You should have an AFS record in the system if:
COE Verification Process
If you have a COE, you can use the COE Verification Process. This process is similar to the Standard Ammunition Eligibility Check. It also takes approximately 2-3 minutes and costs $1 to process.
What’s a COE and how do I know if I have one?
A Certificate of Eligibility (COE) is a background check that’s required of anyone that works with firearms in California (firearms dealers, ammunition vendors, instructors, gun show promoters, etc.).
A COE requires a special application and background check to be sent to and processed by the California DOJ. If you’re not sure if you have one, you most likely do not.
Basic Ammunition Eligibility Check
If you do not have an AFS or a COE, you’ll be required to use the Basic Ammunition Eligibility Check process. This process is very similar to the background check required to purchase a firearm. The fee is $19, though it’s difficult to say how long this process will take. Since it’s a full-scale background check, it may take hours or even days.
Do I have to go through this check every time I buy ammunition?
Yes. Because this check does not “create” an AFS record, you will have to go through this every time you buy ammunition. Or, at least until you purchase or register a firearm that does create a record with the DOJ.
When you are purchasing a firearm from a dealer, the required background check will suffice for any ammunition purchased as well. As a result, you can buy ammo at the same time without an additional fee or background check. You are also not limited to the caliber of the firearm you are buying. The only concern is eligibility, so you can buy any caliber ammunition.
In addition, since purchasing a firearm will create an AFS record, the next time you buy ammunition you should be able to do so using the Standard Ammunition Eligibility Check.
