    Yes I would lend a long gun to someone close to me. What's the liability? Long guns are sold back and forth all the time. Is there liability if you sell one a friend?

    And yes I would give them detailed instruction. I don't have anyone close to me that I wouldn't lend one too ... Otherwise why would I be close with them?

    Agreed.
    Considering the freak out that is going on in the corona thread, it seem to me people wouldn't too concerned over liability.

    I gave two shotguns to my brother tonight. He is going to pay me for one but I may not even take the money. He only has one pistol left after a nasty divorce. Now he has money again but I told him forget trying to get a pistol because pics is so backed up its crazy.


    While I would never loan a pistol, I would sell a shotgun for a buck with the agreement that a gun be purchased ASAP. Then I would buy my gun back for one dollar. I did something similar for my wife's uncle. sixteen of his guns for a buck. They were cataloged, cleaned and stored. After his divorce he bought them back for a buck.

    If you have a ghost gun, nobody could link it to you and the person you lend it to could have bought one even if they were prohibited. I could train someone to be safe. Gun safety isn't exactly rocket science. There is a very small list of people I would lend a gun to and it would only be a long gun.

    What is the legality of a long gun vs a hand gun in regards to this question?

    transferring handgun is illegal, not a long gun (to resident)

    Lending a handgun when the recipient has a LTCF is OK.

    Of course all assumes nobody involved is prohibited.

    That isn’t right. You should have at least doubled your money ;/)

    I'm going to do this for my oldest nephew. He is coming out to my place this Sunday. I'm going to go over safety and we are going to shoot them to make him more comfortable. He can choose whatever he wants to borrow. He is a chef and just lost his job earlier this week. I told him to save his money, as I'm not going to sell him anything.

    Better off to sell it for $1 and do an ffl transfer, and do it in reverse later.

    I used to think that I'd give a rifle to our neighbors if shit went insane, but over time I started to think that if THEY don't think they need a way to defend their home and children, why the hell should I worry about them.

    There are probably two other people nearby that I would not hesitate to hand a rifle to, but like others have said, they already have their own.

    You all know who you could give a gun to and not worry about it.
