Legal advice from us is worth every penny you paid for it. In MOST of the US, there IS no registration of ordinary firearms.

If your friend bought a handgun from another state without going thru an FFL, he has a problem.

Do you REALLY want to become part of his problem?

Federal law (18 US Code, Section 922) says you may not acquire a handgun outside your state of residence. IF he bought it when he lived in WV, and brought the gun with him when he moved- not a problem.

Right. if the firearm cross state lines in the process of a sale, then there had better be an FFL dealer involved. If the firearm crossed state lines in the process of the owner moving/relocating to a new state, and after he became a resident of a new state sold the gun, then there's no need for an FFL to be involved.
