but it makes no sense to buy a gun that you have to change from the start in order for it to be comfortable to shoot.

Simple, then don't buy it. Find one that's comfortable and that you're familiar with and go for it.

I liked that old colt myself. The sights on it were a lot better, all around just a much better gun. I shot a lot better with the colt than the kimber.

I see nothing wrong with that. We went to this teachers house to shoot some of his guns one day for fun, I shot 3. I did not like the kimber but my brother did.(which was the entire purpose of this thread) so I decided that I would let him have that one since he doesnt have the freedom to go to a gun store and pick out any gun he wants to buy it. where is the harm in that?
Yes, please draw me a picture. Since it is paifully obvious that you have superior cognitive reasoning, please enlighten me on how the felony is not a big deal since you see nothing wrong with the crime. I suppose it is less ammo for the Brady's because a teacher bought a gun for a student who travels around with a firearm the student is not legal to own or posess. I find it hard to believe that a teacher would put his/her retirement future in jeopardy for a 20 year old student. I imagine that is a healthy student/teacher relationship.

Which tech school is your brother attending?

Straw purchases are illegal and the FTF Community DOES NOT condone such behavior!

Any further mention of crayons, intelligence or lack there of is going to result in me asking Ineffable to stop by and discuss the finer points of Shame & Humiliation on the Interwebz, of which he happens to have a PhD Accreditation.

Both of my handguns have been straw-purchased by my dad and transferred to me immediately after. Both times, we've explicitly informed the police of what we were doing, to make sure it was legal, and they've reassured us that it was fine.

EDIT: Although, I guess there's an exemption for firearms purchased as a gift (Wikipedia says so, can't find it anywhere official), so I guess I fall under that.

Dillinger, you being the moderator, perhaps you should bump this thread to the forum called "Illegal firearms"...

A purchase by your father and gifted to you, or handed down, is not a straw purchase violation. There are conditions in the law that address that ( Where are Robo and Scubie and glasshartt ?). In the case of pistol, I do not think you can legally be handed down said firearm if you are not of age, but I might be wrong on that. I am not a lawyer, nor do I have any formal law training. LEO's???

However, if you and I were to go to the gun store, and you did not have legal right to own said weapon ( felon, under indictment, illegal alien ) and I purchase the weapon for you, or with your money and my name on the paperwork, then turn around and hand it over to you, that is a Straw Purchase and is definitely illegal.

This website is about the LAWFUL OWNERSHIP of all firearms, no matter the class, caliber or type.

Firearmstalk DOES NOT condone illegal ownership of ANY weapon, regardless of the intention behind said ownership.

god forbid a 20 year old shoot or even look at a handgun without firey spikes coming from hell and impaling him.
