I have a friend and range partner that I used to work with until we both retired. I've known the guy and his wife for 16 years, I'd loan both them the shirt off my back if they needed it.
I loaned a Lady Friend a handgun until she could get to the store and buy herself one, due to a threatening x-boy friend. Next day I took her to the store and she bought her own. Due to Legal Considerations it was the Best Thing To Do, per my lawyer.
