Ok here is the story, Today I had a Glock 26 offered to me via my mother-in-law. She is not a gun person but respects people that wish to own. Good news right? Well its more of the situation that makes me a bit leery. After talking with her (because I wanted to know how she got the firearm) I found out she received it from her son (aka by brother-in-law). He was forced to give it up as his wife is TOTALLY against firearms of any kind. So it was either give it up or not get married. So instead of sell it he gave it to his Mom. Now this is totally legal in PA, these such transfer are legal for: grandparents <-> grandchildren; parents <-> children; spouse <-> spouse. Provided all participants are non-prohibited Pa residents and the transfer occurs in Pa then paperless handgun transfers are allowed. So my mother-in-law has had this sitting in her linen closet for 4 years now, and just wants it out and knows I have a fetish for new guns. So I figure just a trip to my FFL with said handgun and a PICS done and take possession of the firearm. Now if you read the letter of the law, technically my mother-in-law could hand it over to my wife, who then hands it over to me. Totally legal. But do you guys think it would be better to just go through the process and get it officially done through and FFL. Now for this to happen, how would that get to the FFL for him to do the paperwork to hand it to me? She is not going to drive it out so how do I get it there... my FFL is located about 60 miles from my house (where I work) as I've been dealing with him for years. I'm going to give him a call tomorrow to find out but just wanted everyone's take on this matter. Am I just over thinking this and should I just take possession or are my concerns justified?
