    Groomsmen's Gifts!

    This is a first for me. We're taking our son out for lunch and he invites one of his fellow teachers to join us. At the table the guy shares that he went to a wedding of his best friend in Iowa and guess what each groomsmen got for a gift? No, not a money clip, or a bottle of booze, they each got Walther P22's! Are you kidding me? They all went to the range the day before the wedding for a turkey shoot, sort of. I couldn't believe it. Anyone ever hear of something like that? Now that is some kind of friend!!

    Very cool.

    BTW ... I'm available (for "groomsman" duty).

    One problem with that idea,unless he had them fill out the 4473,then he bought those guns knowing thatthey were going to be given away.That is called a "Straw Purchase" and could get him in deep kimshee if the ATF checks his FFL's book and sees multiple purchases of the same gun,he then shows up and asks to see the guns

    Yeah, I was thinking along those lines too. What if one of the guys given a gun, wouldn't pass his own background check? It's too bad the world has come to this. I personally think its an awesome idea... But it isnt 1850 anymore

    This is true. The out-of-staters all had to ship them home to an FFL.

    According to the ATF, unless this is out-of-date and inapplicable, presuming the purchaser filled out his own 4473 at time of purchase indicating he was the actual purchaser:

    General Information

    15. ... Where a person purchases a firearm with the intent of making a gift of the firearm to another person, the person making the purchase is indeed the true purchaser. There is no straw purchaser in these instances.
