    Works for me. I think most of the relevant post did a good job answering his question.
    When that happens the thread usually jumps the tracks and in this case it was actually more decent information and discussion. Not cock rings, faggotry or other poofa classics

    Yes he gave it to me before he died. I was in possession of it for about a year-and-a-half before he passed. Unfortunately they were not married, they were together for a long time but never tied the knot. He had kids from a previous marriage that ended up with the money from his bank accounts but didn't want anything he owned. So what I'm asking is if I were to ever carry his gun could it be an issue? Obviously it's not a stolen gun or anything like that so I'm not really sure.

    This is a problem. You are not his stepson, so giving the firearm to you would be an illegal transfer.

    IANAL.

    I am not a lawyer and it sounds like you should consult one to be sure. (maybe PM gunlawyer on here?) If your step dad intended to give you the gun, you would have had to have it transferred to you at a FFL. Did you happen to do this back when you first got it? If so it is yours and end of story.

    If not it could have been a loan and from what I understand you legally possessed the gun since you have a LTCF and it is legal to lend a firearm to someone with a LTCF. Once your dad passed, the gun became part of his estate and since they never were legally married, your mom is not really in the picture. If the executor(trix) of the estate has declared that you have inherited it from the estate, you should get documentation of that. If not you should arrange to have the executor(trix) transfer it to you at an FFL to be sure. Again. I am not a laywer, and you don't want to screw it up, so good luck.

    Yup.
    I can only imagine the number of handguns that have changed hands in the same manner - not knowing that they did anything wrong.

    What if his dad had a common law marriage?

    It would have to have been created before 1-1-2005.

    § 6111. Sale or transfer of firearms.

    Are you the actual buyer of the firearm(s), as defined under 18 Pa.C.S. § 6102 (relating to definitions), listed on this application/record of sale? Warning: You are not the actual buyer if you are acquiring the firearm(s) on behalf of another person, unless you are legitimately acquiring the firearm as a gift for any of the following individuals who are legally eligible to own a firearm:
    (1) spouse;
    (2) parent;
    (3) child;
    (4) grandparent; or
    (5) grandchild.
    I don't know how PA treats the definition of step-child in this instance if a common law marriage had been truly created.


    IANAL.

    Adopted children are your children.

    The child of your common-law spouse is not your child, unless you choose to adopt.

    In practice, I'm not sure that any DA would prosecute for an unlawful transfer years after the death of the transferor, under some conspiracy theory perhaps. However, if the po-po seize that gun, good luck in proving that you are lawfully entitled to possession.

    I wouldn't personally carry any firearm that wasn't linked to me in the Record of Sale Database, because of the potential for abuse by PD's that don't quite grasp the concept of "NO gun registration in PA".
