So a family member of mine got 2 pistols from one of their friends storage lockers. He went to jail and can no longer own firearms. One of the pistols was offered to me. However, the person who is in jail now is a questionable character. I have no idea if the pistols were stolen or obtained illegally. What I also don't know is if I go to the Sheriff with this story and in possession of a potentially stolen firearm, how do I know I will be safe from any charges? I would like to own this pistol, but if the risk it too great I'd rather keep my record clean. Any suggestions?
