Theoretical question regarding divorce and firearms

Hi All,

Theoretical question here. Lets say you acquired several firearms while married, and are now getting divorced. Your wife asks you for one, but it's a 80%. I'm thinking the right thing to do in that situation would be to have it serialized and transferred via MSP. Theoretically you "could" just give it to the other party, but would that leave you with some responsibility for what they do with it?

Thank you!

Are ALL your firearms your own personal creations ?

A. Give her a store bought one instead .

B. Thru your lawyer of course , but retain the actual things that go bang , and adjust the other property divisions such as to maintain the ( agreed upon split percentage ) .

I was like all the longaberger baskets are yours...
The guns are mine...

That was the deal.

Btw, She kept a gun. I kept a basket.

What 80% ? They really arent that much. Since they are 80% really arent a firearm till finished even then dont need to be serialized. Squabbling over a piece of metal is ridiculous. Just give her cash for it or order another.

I'm assuming the 80% is now a 100%. If she machined it to 100% then she can keep it without any further interaction MSP. I am also assuming that only you and her know who machined it.

I’ve never been divorced, but something about handing an ex a gun is unsettling to me.

Good thing I only have one gun.

As long as I keep the Truck, Boat and the Dog.
