Sigh!

No --

[1] It was "lent" an indoor range which presumably has an FFL.

[2] 18 USC 922(a)(5) has an exception for temporarily loaning a gun to a resident of another State for sporting purposes. The handgun in this case was transferred to an FFL for business purposes.

[3] 18 USC 922(a)(3) dealing with a transferred gun cross state lines has no "loan" exception. Essentially, you can't loan across state lines.

[4] This has been addressed in great detail in a number of other posts, and I've posted numerous times the full text of the laws.
