My uncle borrowed a Marlin .444 from his brother in law and hunted with it for 7 years. When his BIL wanted it back it was returned. There isn't a court in the country that would find this to be anything other than a loan. That's just one example.
And if your Uncle had broken a game law, or committed a crime with it, the 'system' would not have given a whit if his BIL had asked for it back when it was confiscated...

My question is, at what point does it stop being a 'loan' or is in another's constructive 'possession'...

A person may loan or rent a firearm to a resident of any State for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes,

How long is 'temporary' according to the ATF?...Is that a week?...A month?...Or is it overnight for everyone like it is in the case of a licensee?

As I said...Not looking to argue...Trying to understand...
