This is not a "gift" to the relative because the relative reimbursed him for the cost via the cancelled check.
At least figure out how to do it, just like hundreds of people do everyday, when they sell/trade their guns without getting in trouble.
There's also the issue that in exchange for money, he transferred the handgun directly to an out-of-state person.
