    The other answer to this specific scenario - let her borrow a long gun. Then there's really no issues.
    Being the gentleman that I am I'd offer to sit with her and protect her.
    Sorry but I'm all out of pity right now, please try later.

    I'd be concerned with liability issues, not only the friend but their family and that of any one they might shoot justifiably or not.

    I consider it akin to sharing something very personal like a toothbrush. Only exception would be imminent bodily harm or death / war.

    There are used firearms. Some quality new firearms can be found for $180-$250.

    As long as they have a LTCF then yes, you can loan a firearm.

    AND they are also a PA resident.

    Loaning a gun to a out of state buddy, even if he comes here, and even if he has a LTCF/CCW, is an "interstate transfer" and only legal if FFL is utilized or "for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes". The situation as described in the OP doesn't meet the quoted legal exception.
