Assuming your info is correct, then it would fall under #2 on that list, as you reside in a different state from your father. How the transfer occurs doesn't matter, just where the persons involved live.This gets me to wondering about what the process / legality is of someone shipping a firearm to themselves (from one state to another) after said firearm was gifted to them by a relative. Like if I were visiting my dad back in Missouri and he wanted to give me one of his old .22's, but I didn't want to go through the hassle of bringing it back in checked luggage on a plane, would this have to go through an FFL first to transfer ownership first because I'm a non-resident of that state and THEN ship to my state of residence? Or would that be covered by some kind of "gift from immediate family" clause or something, and I could just ship it to myself "in case of" my dad's residence?
Sounds complicated, and I couldn't find anything specifically stating one way or the other.
Really? Cause I've done this several times. In fact, I have a 1911 I bought off Gun Broker, in bound, right now, that the FFL shipped USPS.7. May I lawfully ship a firearm directly to an out-of-State licensee, or must I have a licensee in my State ship it to him? May the licensee return the firearm to me, even if the shipment is across State lines?
