Good thing the universal background check bill didn't pass --- you know the one to close the "gun show loophole." What you described would have been a transfer and required a background check of your friend. Then when you returned, you couldn't shoot it except at an approved gun range --- unless you wanted to go through another transfer procedure.
Sorry but this is wrong.


"Sec. 922. Unlawful acts
(a) It shall be unlawful:

(5) for any person (other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector) to transfer, sell, trade, give, transport, or deliver any firearm to any person (other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector) who the transferor knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, does not maintain a place of business in) the State in which the transferor resides;except that this paragraph shall not apply to (A) the transfer, transportation, or delivery of a firearm made to carry out a bequest of a firearm to, or an acquisition by intestate succession of a firearm by, a person who is permitted to acquire or possess a firearm under the laws of the State of his residence, and (B) the loan or rental of a firearm to any person for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes;"

You should read more of the fine print, there's a pretty narrow definition of loaning for sporting purpose.
IE You can't just leave it with them on the off chance they might use it.

And how exactly are they going to determine the intent of the borrower???

Is this ever going to be prosecuted???

How low on the list of things to worry about should this be???

We are dealing with the ATF they get to decide how to interpret intention

I would say that depends on which state you live in

It is held for safe keeping and not on loan. I travel there and like to have a firearm available to me. Should the need ever arise and my friend need to use it, he is obviously welcome to do so. As I said, he is a Major in the US Air Force and soon to be Lieutenant Colonel. This is so not on my list of worries, but I'm glad that someone else is worrying about it for me. I can't afford to lose any hair or sleep over it... I don't have enough of either as it is!
