Buying a pistol as a gift
Hello all. I recently purchased a pistol for my wife as a gift for Christmas. I purchased the gun online and had it shipped to a local FFL dealer. The gun has just arrived and I want to know how buying guns as a gift for another works. I would like to surprise her under the Christmas tree, but I know the gun needs to be registered. Do I register the gun in my name and then somehow transfer it to hers, or do I spoil the surprise and take her with me to pick it up and have it put in her name then and there from the get go? If the former, how much of a fee is this in general? FWIW, I am in Ohio. Thanks.
