Librarian, bringing over the discussion from my other thread about this in the Centerfire section (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=713754
), if edamon's sister gave him the gun then no one would be the wiser that he owned it, technically. Right?
From some wiki reading, I assume handguns are handled differently than long guns? Do handguns need to be registered no matter what? I'm confused by this because I saw a thread about someone legally buying an unregistered gun via PPT.
What is the advantage of doing a transfer through an FFL, other than it being the lawful way. Does it give you any additional advantages, like in case of a crime (not committing one that is), i.e, you're gun being lost or stolen?
