In your example, the husband is giving the wife a gift of the money.

as stated, it was as much for me as for her. I will never transfer ownership so therefore it is not a gift. I was merely purchasing another gun for my household that my wife would be more comfortable shooting when we go to the range.

wouldn't name them because I do respect their right to refuse service to anyone. they are wrong in this situation but I do like them and wish them the best.

I recently had to point out to an FFL the appropriate paragraph on the back of the 4473.

I was buying a shotgun for my nephew as a graduation gift. (His mother bought him one for his birthday.)

He was in the store with me and I asked him, is that the one you want?

The FFL overheard the conversation and said he could not sell the gun to me because he knew it was going to my nephew. He read the paragraph on the back of the form and then called someone at the Kansas City Office of the ATF.

"Never realized it was legal to do that." The rest of the transaction was flawless.

Maybe you could point it out to the FFL and get him to make a phone call.

The FFL might have simply thought the OP an ATF plant trying to trap him in something he wasn't sure about.
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.
