My mom has a Ruger M77 .270 rifle that she wants to give me as she doesn't shoot it and she and her boyfriend are moving out of the state and traveling the country by RV.

Obviously, I'm not about to turn down a free rifle, but how do I go about doing it within the bounds of the law?

Thanks!

I believe from your mom, and with a rifle, you'd say thanks and give her a hug.

Immediate intrafamilial transfers are OK with no paperwork, IIRC. I'd say Mother to son is pretty immediate, so you're GTG. Give her a great big hug and a kiss. Don't forget to say, "Thank You!". :thumbsup:

Would your mom like to adopt me? I could use a spare rifle also (or handgun... or BB-gun... or slingshot...). :D

easy as a "Thank You Mom".

Make sure they have other firearms for protection and researched laws about such before heading off on their great adventure.

Yah, they're up on it. He has a couple of handguns and a shotgun, they're good to go :).

I was hoping it would be that easy.

Guess I'll post a pic of it when I pick it up this weekend :).

Yes, same thing. This assumes that both parties are residents of California. If one party is a resident of a different State then the transfer has to go through an FFL.

what about father in-law? i suppose it can go from husband to wife first? does that need ffl?

Father in law does not count.

If all parties involved are California residents then a transfer from a husband to his wife is exempt from having to go through an FFL and a transfer from a daughter to her father is exempt from having to go through an FFL. But using both of these exempt transfers to avoid having to do a PPT at an FFL with your father in law is a violation of California law.

The no paperwork intrafamilial transfer does not apply to handguns.

True, but the only thing you need to do different for a handgun is send in the Intrafamilial handgun transfer paper with 19 bucks to the doj after the transfer happens. This is of course only if both parties are CA residents.
