I have to ask.
Does he want to own it? Or does he want to to have possession of it in CA.?
If the just want to own it, you could buy it and maintain possession, whith him being free to use it when he comes to visit, and free to take possession when he escapes CA. If the want to have possession of it in CA. then you might have a problem. I think there are a lot of NY residents now that have out of state family entrusted with holding entire gun collections for them right now.
The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.
