Hello I'm 19 years old. I'm a security Guard in California. I would like to get a Glock 19. My Parents are alright with me getting one but they do not like guns and they will not buy it. My Uncle with the same last name as me is willing to buy it. Can we use the INTRA-FAMILIAL HANDGUN TRANSACTION form to transfer the ownership to my name? Am I legaly allowed to do this since I'm under 21? everyone has a clean record and a California HSC. Please let me know the best way to go about this.

Erm, My parents don't want to buy it. Can My uncle buy it and I can just use it any time I want then we can transfer it to my name when I'm 21. Does he have to be with me when I use it or can I just pick it up and go to the range by myself?

Can he do a PPT transfer to me? or do you have to be 21 in california for ppt also?

You may infrequently borrow it for up to 30 days at a time.

He may PPT it to you once you have reached 21 years old, but not before.

Great, they would not know how frequently I did because no paper work is needed but I will just borrow it for the day every few weeks or so to go to the range. Thanks

Because you are borrowing it. I believe you will need a Handgun Safety Card in Possession. I may be wrong.

Another thing to keep in mind: must be 21 to buy handgun ammunition.
