The DROS is submitted under the "curio/relic/olympic pistol/EXEMPT". There is no "other" on that button in the DROS system. I was told by the CA DOJ to use the comment "SB15 exempt". The fact that it is a gift does not matter since what matters is that it is an intrafamilial transfer.
As said, you need to document it, so a letter from your father, saying that he is your father, is needed. The last name is not enough since it could be from an uncle or brother, which would not qualify for the exemption. I copy of his ID is also a good idea.
