Give him the money, take the gun, and it's as much in your name as it's going to get. Maybe write out a receipt, have him sign it, and keep it for yourself if you're worried about it.

When he completes the transfer form it askes if the weapon is for someone else. In general the ATF looks down on people purchasing a gun for an adult someone else that could buy the gun for themselves. As stated above, fill out a receipt and keep it.

Exactly. The original buyer can always decide he doesn't want it anymore and sell it to whomever he decides.

Wink Do it!

What makes it even right for the feds to treat a rifle like it's a sacred purchase anyway? Their end game is to one day force you to liscense them and pay a tax to own it. Buy your friend's rifle. Buy three of his rifles and sell them to your friends. But steer clear of the handguns man. Everybody knows that handguns kill people all by themselves.

Alright people, pay attention:
"To Many " is an address like in a toast or tribute while "Too Many " is an implication of excess.

As long as you can legally own a firearm.
Sounds like a good birthday present.

There is NOT A GUN REGISTRATION in Texas.

Just have him buy it, and you buy it from him. Private sales of handguns/long guns require NO PAPERWORK.

I would've done it. What I wouldn't have done is post about it on a public forum.
