My brother's been out of the country since 2007, and he wanted me to clean and maintain his firearms, particulary his .308. It would be my first time opening his gun safe and cleaning and shooting a .308. My question, can I actually bring his firearms to the gun range without him being there? If I decide to buy his guns, how can we do a transfer if he's not around to sign over the firearms?


Thank you in advance for any advice given

I would go and ask in the leo forum. Personally I wouldnt even try to do it, too risky.

IMO......Yes. There is no Long Gun Registration at this time. As long as you transport them correctly, and they are not reported stolen you should be fine.

I'd get a written permission.

IANAL

Make sure they're not RAWs.

Just make sure they conform to the law. You don't need written permission since nobody will know they aren't yours unless you tell them (assuming they aren't stolen, of course).

Perfectly legal to shoot your brother's guns without him there. I take my Dad's guns out all the time without him and vice versa.

Take them out and have fun. Dont be foolish to get any attention from LEO's and like others said, make sure they are in legal configuration.

You'll be fine as long as they're in legal configuration and aren't stolen.
