Under federal law, buying a firearm as a gift is perfectly legal.
  • Person A purchases firearm with his or her own money.
  • Person A fills out Form 4473 as the actual purchaser.
  • Person A transfers firearm to Person B*.

(*The transfer must still comply with state and federal law. Those requirements will vary depending on the residence of A and B.)

Straw purchases can occur even when both parties are non-prohibited, but as long as Person A is the actual purchaser and actually giving a gift, it's fine.
A gunfight is not the time to learn new skills.

If you ever have a real need for more than a couple of magazines, your problem is not a shortage of magazines. It's a shortage of people on your side of the argument. -- Art Eatman
