I'm in a little bit of a conundrum. My boss is retiring and some of us employees got together and bought him a gun. He picked it out, I ordered it through a local box store sporting goods store and now I just found out the bad news. I thought he could go with me and get his background check and take possession of the rifle, I was just paying the bill. However, since it was on my CC, apparently I have to get the background, take possession, then go to another place who does transfers and pay money to have it transferred to him. My understanding of straw purchases were people buying guns for those who legally can't possess them. We both are clean, I thought since I was just the money behind the purchase he could do the background. Apparently not so according to the box store. I guess now to be legal we have to go pay to have another transfer done?
