    Situation: Canadian Citizen wishes to transfer long guns to family member (US citizen in Oregon) by a strictly legal means. Rifles are registered in the Canadian system. TIA

    Oh yeah, if the guns are "common" and replaceable then I would recommend selling them in Canada and then buying replacements in the US. Typically gun prices are higher in Canada so you would probably come out ahead.

    Yup, I'd only go through the effort if they are heirlooms. (Heck, if they're old enough, they don't count as firearms by federal law, only as antiques.)
