    My FIL drove here from Oregon on his way to Fla. He is giving my wife a black powder rifle. Since he transported it to GA and he is giving it to her while he is here, do we need to do any kind of paperwork? A gift receipt? FFL transfer?

    Leaglly, all he has to has to do is hand it to her and say "I hope you enjoy it." Well.....telling her to enjoy it is what I would do, but isn't exactly required.

    If this is a black powder, as in a muzzle loader, nothing has to be done.
    As muzzle loaders are considered to be primiative weapons.

    If he wants to cover his butt, he can have her sign a receipt saying she has it and he does not, so if she injuries someone with it, and it is traced to him, he can prove he does not have it. Or is that covered under "innocent until proven guilty". I forget. :whistling:
