I'm talking about lending him my shotgun, to keep at his house for his lawful use, for an extended period of time. He is not a prohibited person. Is this legal? Anyone know?

Thanks

For up to 30 days I believe. Assuming your bro is not a prohibited person.

Though what is illegal is referring to a shotgun as a shotty :p

You can lend a firearm to someone you know for up to 30 days. If it is a handgun the person you are lending it to needs a HSC.

Yes, and you can loan it for longer than 30 days if it is for the duration of a hunting season. More info here in the FAQ: Can I loan a long gun to an adult? (http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/FAQ#Can_I_loan_a_long_gun_to_an_adult.3F)

If I had a borrowed gun, under which circumstances would I have to provide information on who I borrowed it from or how long I have had it, provided all my behavior was legal?

If you shoot someone with it.

OK, Ok guys, I get it. Jeez, I must remember to use proper nomenclature around here. Notice in my first post I did actually say shotgun. "shotty" was just an attention grabber. I guess it worked. Thanks for the responses. :thumbsup:

I wouldn't do that...that is, if I had a Glock Fotay...I'm not professional enough for one of those. :rofl2:

I once made a buddy wear pink earmuffs at the range as punishment for saying clips instead of magazines. :p

What if the person borrowing the handgun is in the military? No HSC for military right?

Handgun Safety Certificate Exemptions (HSC)

The following qualify for HSC exempt status:

* Peace officer (active California)
* Peace officer (active federal)
* Peace officer (honorably retired California or federal)
* Reserve peace officer (as defined in Penal Code Section 832.6)
* Persons who have successfully completed P.O.S.T. 832 PC firearms training
* Federally licensed firearm collector who has a DOJ-issued COE who is acquiring a federally-defined curio/relic
* Person to whom a handgun is being returned, where he/she is the owner of the firearm
* Carry Concealed Weapon (CCW) Permit Holder
* Military - active duty
* Military - honorably retired
* Military - active reserve
* Certain particular and limited authority peace officers
* Persons who hold a DOJ-issued special weapons permit
* Persons taking possession of firearms pursuant to specific conditions related to operation of law acquisitions
* Law enforcement service weapon passed to surviving family member


Works for me.
