No. Not quite so fast.
You can't structure such a transfer thru multisteps. There's PC out there I don't recall, I saw it the other week.
While there's no time specified, and dad can decide he doesn't like the gun, such "flipping" would be easily determined from the DROS data.
At best, Dad should spend some time really figuring if he likes the gun or not.
