Legally yes that should still work just dandy. Just remember if things fall apart and she splits, she has full ownership of them.. i would consult a lawyer first but i've seen many friends (some with aggressive criminal backgrounds) weasel their way out of trouble for weapons in their houses simply from transferred paper ownership.

I am NOT a lawyer- am gun collector. YOU, sir, need to talk with a lawyer.

Federal law (18 US Code 922) says a felon cannot POSSESS a firearm. Own- sure. Possess- no. That includes have unrestricted access to the same.

Ball and cap- MAYBE. Under Federal law, they are antiques (even if made yesterday) and not firearms. HOWEVER- some states restrict THOSE from felons. Ammo- including 209 primers, is forbidden under Federal law.

If I were in your place, I would be appealing the CRAP out of that conviction. A felony is going to impact you in MANY other ways beyond gun ownership. Time (past time, really) to lawyer up.

Different states have different views on felons and gun ownership, some have a 5 year wait after the sentence or parole has been completed such as okla. and Texas. But they also say that you can not be in the proximity of a gun such as a vehicle or your house during that time. Consult at least 2 different lawyers to make sure your getting your best shot at restoring your rights to gun ownership.

That sucks man...important thing is to appeal that conviction and get another Judge to rule on it. After that worry about the guns, that felony conviction can screw you for the rest of your life.

Thanks guys, and I do have another attorney trying to sort this all out and try to have it heard infront of a different judge buy florida law is strict and crap from what I'm understanding. It may cost me so much time and money that it may drain me. But we shall see.

Its one of those things that may well be worth bankruptcy. As someone else mentioned, look into suing the ex too.

He does live in Illinois, and while our "political climate" isn't gun friendly his offense was in Florida.

MaxdogVF213, here is some info on Illinois law - if I am interpreting this correctly, it would not be legal for you to have any firearm (including muzzle-loaders) in your house -
