maybe i shoulda been more detailed on that.
you can give them as gifts but it is a big risk since your leaving interpretation of bona fide gift up to the district attorney where you are buying. in the middle part of the country its generally not an issue but on the coasts in liberal havens DAs slobber at the chance to put law abiders in jail.
consider what would occur to you if an accident occurs or the recipient uses it to defend themselves and the prosecuter happens to be a liberal asshat, digs into the chain of ownership. its just another piece of info they can twist around to use against you and your loved one so a lawyer can put another notch in the belt.
anytime "intent" comes up it can be twisted however the DA chooses.
the two guns ive bought for my wife ive given her the money and let her fill out the papers for her ar15 and her bersa.
