    Penna. gift handgun law help wanted

    I am fishing for help here, guys and gals. Can anyone in Pennsylvania bring me up to speed on the laws regarding residents giving a handgun to a family member as a gift? (Correctly assume that the recipient would have no problem qualifying for his/her own purchase.)

    Thanks!

    Subject to confirmation - I have understood that immediate family is OK. Spousal is in particular acceptable. My wife has my Bersa for instance - it is still ''technically'' mine - but she has custody. The Bersa my step daughter has - she in fact did her own paperwork even tho I bought it for her.

    These days tho much care has to be taken to avoid any purchase being seen as a straw purchase - which makes me think that the safest way of all is actually having the intended owner fill out the paperwork.

    QK usually has the full skinny on these things and hopefully will add his 2c later.
