Giving a Firearm as a Gift? Some Reminders From NSSF
The holidays are just around the corner. As hunters, shooters, collectors or just plain plinkers, it’s a natural instinct to want to share our enjoyment of firearms with others. What better way to do that than to make a gift of a firearm to a family member, close friend or relative?
The first thing to remember if you’re thinking about giving someone a gun is that . . . it’s a gun! You already know that ownership of a firearm brings with it some serious legal and ethical obligations that other consumer products don’t. So let’s look at some questions you may have about giving a firearm as a gift.
The first question you have to ask is whether the intended recipient can legally own the firearm where he or she lives. With more than 20,000 different gun laws on the books, even the kinds of firearms that law-abiding citizens can own vary from place to place; for example, juveniles (under age 18), generally speaking, are precluded by law from possessing a handgun. Check out the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) website for an overview of local laws and, whatever you do, don’t forget that you can never under any circumstances transfer a firearm to someone you know — or have reasonable cause to believe — legally can’t own one. That’s a federal felony, so be careful.
There’s no federal law that prohibits a gift of a firearm to a relative or friend that lives in your home state. Abramski v. United States, a recent Supreme Court decision involving a “straw purchase” of a firearm did not change the law regarding firearms as gifts. The following states (California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington State) and the District of Columbia require you to transfer a firearm through a local firearms retailer so an instant background check will be performed to make sure the recipient is not legally prohibited from owning the gun. Maryland and Pennsylvania require a background check for private party transfer of a handgun. There are exceptions, so it’s important to carefully check the law of your state or ask your local firearms retailer.
The ATF recommends that if you want to give someone a new firearm, rather than going to a gun store, buying it on your own and giving it to, say your father, consider instead purchasing a gift certificate from that retailer and giving it to Dad as his present. That way he’ll get the exact gun he wants, and there’s no question about who is “the actual buyer of the firearm,” which is a question any purchaser must certify on the Federal Form 4473 at the time of purchase.
You can only ship a handgun by common carrier (but not U.S. Mail) and a long gun by U.S. Mail or common carrier to a federally licensed retailer, but not to a non-licensed individual in another state. With all carriers, federal law requires you to declare that your package contains an unloaded firearm. To be safe, always consult your carrier in advance about its regulations for shipping firearms.
What if you want to give “Old Betsy,” your favorite old deer rifle, to your son or daughter as a college graduation gift? Again, in most states, there’s no law that says you can’t, but some states require even inter-family transfers to go through a licensed retailer. Remember, you can never transfer a firearm directly to another person who is a resident of a different state. In that case, you must transfer the firearm through a licensed retailer in the state where the person receiving the gift resides. Using a gift certificate from a firearms retailer near where the recipient lives might be a good solution. Pre-1898 antique firearms are generally exempt from the retailer requirement. Be safe and check with your retailer or local law enforcement before you hand over your prized possession.
It’s often an emotional moment when a treasured family heirloom is passed down to the next generation. These moments are part of what our cherished enjoyment of firearms is all about and represent that unique bond that sportsmen have with their fellow enthusiasts.
So enjoy the holidays and do it right!

5 Gifts for Hunters Who Have It All

Christmas is coming up fast, and most of us are in present buying mode. If you have hunters on your list, you probably want to get them something that they can use while enjoying their favorite hobby. However, buying the right hunting gift can be challenging at times, especially when shopping for the guy or gal who seems to already have all the gear they need. Fortunately, there are plenty of gift choices that are ideal for the well-stocked and outfitted hunter.

Lorpen T3 Hiking Socks

While kids typically groan when they find socks under the Christmas tree, most duck and deer hunters are happy to open up a package of sturdy socks. The T3 Light Hiker Socks from Lorpen start at about $18 and they are great for reducing foot fatigue. The socks feature three natural and synthetic yarns that blend together into a knit that helps to keep feet dry and comfortable, even after long treks into the woods.

Snow Peak Titanium 600 Mug

For hunters who camp for at least a day or two, the Snow Peak HotLips Titanium 600 Mug from REI will allow them to enjoy their morning coffee or evening soup without burning their taste buds, tongues and lips. The titanium mug can be placed right onto a fire or stove, and then the food grade silicone HotLips can be attached to the side so people can sip the hot liquid without burning their mouths on the hot metal. The durable mug is also lightweight at just three ounces and it retails for just under $37.

Reusable Utensils

If you are looking for a great stocking stuffer for an avid hunter, the Cloverware Lite reusable utensils from Alite are a great choice. Perfect for hunting trips, the set includes a knife, fork and spoon that nest together and can be washed and used again and again. They are also super sturdy and can be boiled in water over a campfire to clean them.

Celestron Elements FireCel

Ideally, hunting means getting away from smartphones and other electronics. But a lot of hunters know and understand that these gadgets can be very useful in the wild, especially for GPS purposes and weather checks. ShopDeerHunting features the Celestron Elements FireCel which works as a portable power supply for phones, as well as a hand warmer and LED flashlight. For just under $40, the FireCel will provide steady heat for up to three hours, and it’s small enough to fit into a glove box or hunting bag. The LED light features five settings including an SOS mode.

Camouflage Pants

While you might think that the hunter in your life who seems to have everything probably has plenty of pants, chances are good that he or she can always use more of this hunting wardrobe staple. Cabela’s sells a terrific selection lightweight camo pants that are perfect for all types of hunters. The Mossy Oak Five-Pocket Denim Jeans run about $30 and are made from 100 percent brushed cotton twill that is designed to help hunters walk around without their pant legs rubbing together and making noise. They are also durable and comfortable, and have five pockets for holding supplies.
