    Hop you are right...we just went out to a fancy shmancy restaurant on Saturday, at 40 bucks a plate..that was about 1/5 the cost of a gun for her. Going to definitely start making some cuts in our spending.

    Sadly, she already has a toothbrush for me, and my manhood.

    Lending a gun is a bad idea, for the reasons stated in previous posts (Ramrods in particular).

    Do you both live in the same state? If so you can do a private sale - you may want a bill of sale for proof of the transfer. Of course if you do that you will lose title to the gun and you can't "ask" for it back.

    Things go south, including relationships. One of the last thing you want is for her to be in possession of the loaner if you break up, and then when you ask for it back she says "Oh, THAT gun...yeah, I sold/gave/lost it...

    Or, as another poster suggested, just marry her. That will get rid of all of your problems!

    I don't know what the law is in the OP's state but to address your statement for MI, that is false. A CPL holder in MI can be in possession of any legal, registered pistol with permission from the owner. Without a CPL in MI, it is illegal to be in possession of any pistol that is not registered to you.

    OP, if you do decide to loan a gun to your lady friend (which I strongly discourage for the reasons previously listed) definitely make sure you are within the law while doing so.

    Sell it to her for a dollar (then buy her a Coke) and just do the transfer at an FFL. She's safe, you're not liable.

    At first I was thinking face to face was alright for handguns because that's how I took possession of my firearms from my parents (I'm a PA resident) when I was old enough, but then I remembered that it only applied to families, or something like that.

    rules from state to state vary Florida is very reserved on gun laws as long as it is in the possession of the parents and neither of them is a felon




    And as to the girlfriend would you loan her out to a motorcycle gang NO same with a gun. You are responsible for anything that happens with that gun, if you are going to give it to her you need to do a transfer letter both sign both have copies with copies of pa drivers license. Pa is like florida in this regard no registration

    Rifles and shotguns are loanable to anyone that is allowed to pocess in Michigan. You can loan a handgun to someone if they have a Concealed Pistol License in Michigan. I wouldn't do it.

    Lawyers always seek the deepest pockets. If you lend your GF a gun and she uses it, you may be confident that you will lose a heck of a lot of money when the lawyers come after you. (You don't have to be guilty of anything or have broken any law; it is simply about the money.)

    Give or sell her a gun, with the legal paperwork showing that she now owns the gun, not you.

    Lots of speculation in this thread.

    My feeling is this...

    LOAN her the gun. Loan her one that you don't ever expect to see again. That way if you don't, no big deal.

    If it is legal for you to loan it to her, then don't worry about the hype. Its just a piece of personal property that you loaned her and if it does happen to save her life if she has to use it, then it has done its job.

    When you loan it to her, be sure that she is competent with it, so some training is in order here. It would be irresponsible of you to not ensure that she can safely handle it. You need to also coach her on when to or not to use it and make sure that is knows the lethal force laws where you live.

    Personally, I wouldn't loan anyone a gun except my wife in the event her's was broken. You're better off lending them your dog because it can provide a reasonable degree of protection, it can't be easily used to commit a felony, most likely won't be stolen, and it can find its own way home.
