    call some local pawn shops or anyone else who sells guns retail and ask them if they can perform a transfer for you...

    go here and search for a local ffl...

    Since it has been "Registered" in PA, you need to go thru an FFL, probably just to save grief for your relative. In the states that aren't so communistic yet, that don't have registry, in which the two relatives, such as Daddy and Son as discussed had both been residents.......I would think it would be hard to prove that the transfer didn't take place years before when the son lived in the same state as Dad.

    $20 for a proper FFL transfer is reasonable, they have costs and liability too. If it was so easy, everyone would have one!

    You could always go for a visit and 'forget' to load it back into the car.

    In order to transfer a firearm to a resident of another state legally, it has to be done via a FFL in your state and a FFL in your fathers state. It doesn't matter who drives where. Now if you can find a FFL in Georgia willing to accept shipment directly from your father, he can send it directly to your FFL. There are only two exceptions; the gun was manufactured before 1898 is a replica of a gun manufactured before 1898 not chambered for modern ammunition, or one of you can move to the others state and meet the residency requirements. Then you can skip the FFL's provided there is no state law forbidding the transfer.
