    I have 2 handguns that I have had for many years. I bought them new so I know they are not stolen. I haven't used them in years and don't want the responsibility of owning them any longer.

    Is it legal to give them away? Is there anything I should know before I give them away?

    I live in Oregon

    Just make sure that the person(s) you give them too are legal to own, and are likely not to use them in a crime.
    Person(s) must be Oregon residents, or you must use an FFL to transfer them.

    Look through this post for legal issues.

    Just a thought, why not sell them. Classified sections on this board will provide a venue for that.

    I believe if they go across state lines you are required to use a ffl regardless of gift or selling.

    I also believe this to be true.

    You do not need an FFL transfer for an instate gift. only if you give it to someone that does not live in Oregon.

    I might sell one. A family member wants one.

    Correct. If you are an Oregon resident, and the guns are in your possession, then you may give it to another Oregon resident without using an FFL to transfer them. Only if you give/sell/trade to an out of state resident.
