    I live in OR and my dad lives in WA, can I legally give him a gun as a gift? If no money is involved? Since its family?

    This is what OFF has to say;

    "Any firearm transfer between two states requires that the gun be sent to a licensed dealer in the state where the recipient lives. The recipient must pick it up from the dealer after undergoing a background check. The only exception is when a gun is "willed" to a person in another state."

    You might be able to work through a dealer in WA to give him a gift certificate.

    I already have the gun and don't want to pay somebody to do so BS paperwork for giving my own dad a gun as a gift. Can I "loan" my own dad a gun for him to go shooting with? Maybe a "long term loan". My dad has a few of my guns at his house, they moved from oregon to wa with him, but they are mine... Just another way for the idiots that run our country to rob us.

    Loan it to him to use when you are not there.

    From:
    http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/unlicensed-persons.html

    A person may loan or rent a firearm to a resident of any State for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes, if he does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the person is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law

    you do a transfer according to the law the FFL in WA is REQUIRED to charge sales/use tax on the value of the gun, the shipping and the FFL transfer fee.

    You can pay a little bit now to an FFL for the piece of mind of knowing that you won't pay a lot later to a criminal defense attorney. ;)

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought you could not sale handguns across state lines, but you could sale long guns from oregon to washington and vice versa. Or is that just for purchases of long guns from a FFL? I thought it included private party as well.

    You can not transfer ownership of a gun from/to another non-licensed person if either of you are out of your state of residence. Not even if you are both from the same state, like two WA residents at an OR gun show.

    Good to know. I take it, it was just from a FFL about the out of state handgun vs longgun difference.

    This is so true. Sad, but true. Without google for gun laws, how many people would have just got on the nickleads and picked up a gun from someone across the river? Probably a lot of people who didn't know better.
