No way it's a straw purchase.
Your money, your gun.
The 4473 doesn't ask for the name on the bank account or the name on the shipping label.
It asks if you are the actual purchaser. The answer is yes.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
-Jim Eliott, paraphrasing Philip Henry.
