Faher’s Day is just around the corner. As hunters, shooters, collectors or just plain plinkers, it’s a natural instinct to want to share our enjoyment of firearms with others. What better way to do that than to give a gift of a firearm to Dad?
There’s no federal law that prohibits a gift of a firearm to a relative or friend that lives in your home state and can legally possess one.
It IS illegal to give a firearm to someone you know or believe unable to legally own one.
The ATF recommends that if you want to give someone a new firearm, rather than going to a gun store, buying it on your own and giving it to, say your father, consider instead purchasing a gift certificate from that retailer and giving it to Dad as his present. That way he’ll get the exact gun he wants, and there’s no question about who is “the actual buyer of the firearm,” which is a question any purchaser must certify on the Federal Form 4473 at the time of purchase.
