Default Can I transfer a handgun to my brother?

I just read the thread about father to son gun transfer and was wondering if the family intra transfer applies to me giving or tranferring to my brother also? Can I buy a gun to transfer to him? Or is that a straw purchase? Please educate me. Thank u

Family gun transfers are only parent/child. Sibling transfers are not legally recognized under CA law.

I believe you'd have to first transfer the gun to a parent, and then that parent could transfer the gun to your brother. Or you could go to a FFL and do it that way.

Anything other than direct line (son/daughter/father/mother/grandfather/grandmother) must be handled as a normal PPT (if local) or FFL transfer if not face to face.

The term "straw purchase" is thrown around somewhat loosely.
A true "straw purchase" is when someone purchases a gun (legally through a dealer) with the intention of giving/selling the gun illegally to a prohibited person.
So, assuming that your brother would clear the DOJ background check if he were to buy a gun on his own, it would not technically be a straw purchase if you bought one and handed it to him, but it would still become an illegal transfer after 30 days.

Intra family transfers only apply from parent or grandparent.

Too loosely IMO, many people have different interpretations of that term. It really varies from shop to shop.

In other words, you can give or receive a firearm via intrafamily transfer method if it's your parent, grandparent, child or grandchild. If you're old/young enough and of legal age... that could extend to great grands as well. Straight up and down the family tree, not sideways. If you want your brother to have your firearm, give it to someone who's in the vertical tree above both of you... like a parent or grandparent... who then passes it vertically down the tree to your brother.

You could do that or you can just PPT it. (if all parties involved are CA residents)
It will cost less money to PPT it than to intra-familial gift it.
PPT = $35.
Giving handgun to parent = $19 + giving handgun to child = $19. Total cost = $38.

Yea that too, I forgot to mention that but I'm pretty sure the op is referring to a brother between the ages of 18-20

+1... and waiting for the confirmation from the DOJ on the first IF transfer is going to take a heck of a lot longer than the 10 day wait if you just do a PPT.

CA DOJ BOF takes about 4-16 weeks to mail out the confirmation letter.
