I ask this because I already know of DC residents who own guns---they owned them before moving to DC and keep them stored at a friend's house in Virginia. Makes for a long drive every time they need to pick up the guns before an IDPA match, but hey, it's what works.
So this means it is possible for a DC resident to be the owner of a handgun, so long as it is not kept within the District as an unregistered (illegal) handgun.
I am trying to figure out if there is anyway to transfer a gun to a current DC resident, so long as the gun will not be brought into DC in violation of current law.
Yes, I know (and hope!) all of this will change eventually after Heller comes out, but I am wondering if there is any way to do this now. The problem I keep coming up with is that even a person-to-person transfer out of state requires an FFL in the receiving location (please, correct me if I am wrong), and I am thinking it'd be kind of hard to find a transfer dealer in DC.
