I don't know about other states but here in Ky.. It is pretty common to give a gun to your son. Also guns get purchased and then sold for any number of reasons no paper work for a sale individual to individual. One guy needs money....sale.......guy buys it cheap just to make money......sale............guy buys it shoots it.......someone sees it likes it...........trade............give it son..............needs money..........sale

Not exactly. An ATF Guntrace traces the gun from the manufacturer, through the wholesaler and dealer, then to the ORIGINAL purchaser. If you sell or trade the gun to a dealer, there is a record of that transaction, but not a link to the previouos dealer. The gun could bounce in and out of FFL dealer's hands multiple times, but there is no easy way to trace those transactions.

I request a trace through ATF. A couple of weeks later they send me a letter explaining who bought it FIRST from the dealer. I try to find that person. He tells me "I traded it to Joe's guns shop about 3 years ago". I contact Joe's. Joe tells me he sold it to customer #2 and the process starts all over again. It is sometimes very complicated and time consuming to find the last owner.

BTW, Texas has no gun registration and the CHL does not indicate what gun you are allowed to carry, just the class of gun (SA for Semi-auto and anything else. NSA for anything BUT a semi-auto).

I can "run" the serial number of a gun and find out if it is reported stolen, that is it. It may be stolen, but not reported. I have no clue who it actually belongs to.

As long as you took the concealed carry course with a semi-auto handgun, you can carry any handgun you want in Texas as long as it's concealed.

Talent,

Most state laws that are reciprocity states with Texas. They normally state as long as the person carrying and traveling has a valid CCW. And they are legal as long as the weapon in their possession is legally in their possession. As stated however if you do a lot of traveling you need to check each individual states regulations. *You have states like Illinois and others who are serious exceptions.
