I did a search with different parameters and went thru 15 or so threads.

The question is that if there is a AW registered to 2 people father and son, but the father is the person who bought the AW can the son take it out and use it at the range by him/herself?:confused:

This is also transferable to son right?

Both of them are legal to possess that particular AW.

Some notes on this...

'Joint registration' on AWs was for AW co-owning family members residing in the same household, per 12285(e) PC....

There is no "transfer" occurring from father to son because both are registered co-owners.

It also appears, from the way this was codified, that some of the co-registrants could have moved from the 'master household' (or storage household) and still be allowed to use/possess etc the AW. The 12285(e) "family members in same household" restriction appears only to have applied during the gun's transition into AW status and through the time of registration.

There's no provisions in the code that removes a joint registrant off an AW registration just because he moves out of the household at some point after that the AW was originally reg'd to the various family members.
