Go fill out the paperwork and see. The worst they can do is say no.

Move out of California and your chances improve 100%.

Make sure you fill out the paperwork better than you post.

Way beyond my knowledge. Contact your major local gun groups, or if you're feeling ballsy the NRA, for a good answer. Do NOT rely on any branch of law enforcement to give you an answer.

From the ATF site-

Q: May aliens legally in the United States buy firearms?
An alien legally in the U.S. may acquire firearms if he has a State of residence. An alien has a State of residence only if he is residing in that State and has resided in a State continuously for at least 90 days prior to the purchase. An alien acquiring firearms from a licensee is required to prove both his identity, by presenting a government-issued photo identification, and his residency with substantiating documentation showing that he has resided in the State continuously for the 90-day period prior to the purchase. Examples of qualifying documentation to prove residency include: utility bills, lease agreements, credit card statements, and pay stubs from the purchaser’s place of employment, if such documents include residential addresses.
See also Item 5, “Sales to Aliens in the United States,” in the General Information section of this publication.
[18 U.S.C. 921, 922(b)(3), (d) and (g), 27 CFR 478.11 and 478.99(a)]

Remember, California may (and likely does) have stricter restrictions than the ATF imposes.

True...but this is a long gun, so maybe the planets may align for him in Cali.

Yes in CA you can purchase a weapon as a perminate resident... Just need ID and 2-3 months utility bills to prove residence.

Not to derail the thread, but is there any reason why you haven't become a citizen after 25 years?
