Minimum age for gifting a long gun to immediate family?

I've looked through MD criminal law explaining firearms laws and tried searching the forum, but wasn't able to find the answer to my question.

What's the minimum age for gifting a long gun?

Can someone point me to the code, if it exists?

Thanks

And I've got a follow-on to that question:
Can I gift ownership of a firearm to someone too young to possess it, if they do not take actual possession until they are of legal age?

When my Father gave me guns and I gave my kids guns and when my son gave his step-daughter a Savage Rascal, we never even thought about involving the state or their stupid bullshit rules.

Other than your kids/Grandkids I would imagine they would have to be 18 and not prohibited.

I bought a 22 revolver from a neighbor when I was 17. The background check consisted of the neighbor asking me whether my Mother knew I was buying it and approved of it! (she did by the way)
LOL!

I created a "bill of sale" for my daughter to "prove" ownership... sounds like that may save her training requirements if this list of horse manure passes this year.

I have to look it up, but one can gift a long gun to your children that are 16 and older. For under 16, only if they've successfully passed hunter's safety training.

FROM GUNS.COM

A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN GIFTING A GUN FOR CHRISTMAS
12/17/18 6:30 AM | by GDC Staff
Considering gifting a gun this Christmas? Guns.com rounded up a few important tips to prevent you from breaking any state or federal laws in the process.

Is it illegal to give a gun as a gift?

Buying a gun for someone else is tricky. Even in cases in which the recipient can legally buy and own a firearm, the transaction could still be considered a straw purchase. While the 2014 Supreme Court case Abramski v. United States found that gifting firearms is legally permitted, the caveat is the recipient cannot know about the purchase beforehand.

Therefore, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives along with gun industry trade groups recommend giving a gift card from a federally licensed dealer instead of an actual gun. This helps avoid the thorny issue of completing Form 4473 for a firearm that will ultimately end up in someone else’s hands.

It’s also important to consider the age of the recipient as well as their eligibility to own a firearm in your state. Many states restrict handgun transfers to those under 18, while others require permits or licenses for legal ownership.

Out-of-state transfers

When it comes to gifting guns to out-of-state friends and relatives, federal law mandates the transfer occur at an FFL in the state where the recipient lives. Handguns can be shipped through common carrier only, while long guns can travel through U.S. mail. All firearms must ship unloaded and clearly marked, though common carriers can require additional regulations.

Instate transfers

There’s no federal law prohibiting you from giving a gun as a present to a friend or relative who lives in the same state. However, residents of California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington and the District of Columbia must complete such transfers through a local FFL. Maryland and Pennsylvania residents must complete background checks for private party transfers of handguns only.

Heirlooms and antique guns

Transferring heirloom guns from one relative to the next within the same state usually doesn’t require a background check — though some states are an exception to this rule. Transferring firearms to a resident of another state typically mandates the involvement of an FFL. The National Shooting Sports Foundation said pre-1889 antique firearms should be exempt from this requirement, but check with local law enforcement to be sure.

When in doubt, just remember gift cards and gun stores, and double check your state’s laws before wrapping up that special gift this holiday season.
