    Question for FFLs

    I believe what I am planning to do is legal, but want to double check first. I have a B-day coming up and my wife said she will buy me a new handgun for a gift. If I fill out the purchase form and have a permit to acquire as the gun is going to be mine, is there any legal problem with her actually paying for the gun with a credit card in her name? Any conflict with the question on the form about :Are you the actual buyer of the gun?
    Thanks!

    There is no problem with your wife paying for the gun.

    It's a non-issue. Enjoy your birthday present.

    Is she holding you to a budget?


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I do have an annual budget, but blew right thru it this year.

    Am actually planning to buy two new 442s with a net price each of $295. But to do so, I need her to buy one for a gift for me so she can use her Cabelas Visa card and get $85 off the sale price of $380---CLub Card days coming up tomorrow. COnvenient that my B-day is in 10 days and she suggested the gift idea. Can't beat that.

    You should be good to go. She is basically giving you a monetary present and you are using that to buy the gun for you. She isn't giving you money to buy a gun for her.

    The other legal way to do it is for her to fill out the paperwork and then gift the actual gun to you.
