I got another FFL in my area to do the transfer for me. When I told them the story behind what happened they said that the gun range had no idea what they were doing. They also stated that if I had come into them and said straight out I was buying it as a gift for my wife they would have zero problem with doing the transfer. I will be talking to my ranges owner the next time I am there and informing him of the lack of education his employees have. All of your replies were very helpful and i appreciate you taking the time to help. Best of luck in all of your en devours.
