    Firearm as a Gift

    My old lady who rocks might I add is going to buy me a handgun for Christmas/Hanukkah (we celebrate both since our families differ on the religion thing). Anyways, if she was to purchase it how do I go about getting it in my name besides the obvious bill of sale between us? Is there a way she can buy it and have it put in my name or would I have to be there? I gave her a list of what I wanted, so I kinda wanted it to be a surprise if it's at all possible.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    not sure about KY, you could either go with her to purchase or go have it transferred after the fact.....

    Well, kinda sucks then, but I guess I'll just transfer it after the fact. Thanks for the help!

    She wanted to know what I wanted and wanted to pick it out. I'm not ever going to interfere with her interest in firearms. I'm already very lucky that she likes to shoot and carries.

    We're giving handguns this year. Here's how we handled it...

    First, Texas is a bad example because if I want to sell a gun, our laws work as they should. You give me the cash or the thing I'm trading for, I give you the gun, we shake hands, done.

    So the SP101 I'm getting for my brother, I bought it, I give it to him, no muss no fuss.

    But the one I'm getting, my would be givers simply gave me $$$ for it and I went and bought it myself and it was easier on everybody. Yeah it takes the surprise factor out of it, but it was just a lot easier.

    I've suggested this to my wife before as she does not have an AFL, which you need for a firearms purchase in WA State if you are an immigrant alien (we have our Green cards), I however do have my AFL, so that work out just right in our case.

    as you could prove it was a gift from your wife and your sending in the warranty card in your name shouldn't be a problem at all

    Kentucky is the same way. Since it's a new firearm, I might just do that. Kinda just wanted to make sure the ATF knew, but I guess it doesn't matter.
