Gifting a long gun

I am planning to purchase a holiday gift of a long gun for a member of my immediate family. I will fill out the form with his information, and have the product shipped in his mane to the residence we both share. The only occurrence of my name on the transaction is my credit card information. Please concur this is not a straw purchase.

I believe it should be done in your name. You are the actual buyer and you are going to then be giving the gift to your relative. What is the form will you be filling out with his name? How will this be shipped to your residence? Wont it go through a FFL?

Is it from CMP? I think the government is the only one who sends firearms to someones home.

I would have it shipped in my name to avoid the appearance of a straw purchase. These days, sellers are likely to refuse the sale if it even remotely appears to be a straw purchase.

The two long guns that I have gifted in the past were purchased and brought into the home by me, and then given as gifts to a member of my immediate family.

I would only suggest that you make absolutely sure the family member shares your interest. My family member seemed to and went hunting with me every year until it came time to get his Hunter's Safety course training so he could actually do the shooting. He never took the course and when I had to stop hunting, he lost all interest. He never fired either of the guns and sold them to a pawn shop when times got tough. I must admit that I was disappointed to learn this, but he was able to get through it on his own and that, I must respect and am very proud.

These days, I hold onto one build that has been designated as "his" in case the SHTF.

Look into a Curio and Relics 03 FFL. Guns are regularly shipped by licensed dealers to these 03 FFL holder's homes anywhere in the country and are not affiliated in any way with the gooberment.

Nothing nicer than Fedex bringing a new toy to my door.

You can give your relative money to apply to the purchase of a gun. In this instance he would be able to fill out the forms. Maybe you could use a gift card, or money order, or cashiers check if he dosen't have a credit card.

so a 25 yo AR-15 can be shipped to your house? Still has to be HB in MD? Nevermind. I see. 50 YO.

You are the purchaser so your name should appear otherwise strong grounds for “straw” purchase. If gifting YOU are also responsible for verifying receiver is not prohibited from owning it. Also if ordering I believe it must be sent to a FFL for transfer and not individual address.
