My best friend lives in Alabama and though I hope to be alive another 50 years +, I need to be smart about this and make certain that if I depart prematurely my guns don't end up in anyone's hands but the people they are intended for. One such gun I would like to leave to my buddy in Alabama. So my question is, do I need to leave it to a family member with instructions to legally transfer it to my friend?... or can I safely add him to my trust and be assured that the state won't get their sticky fingers on it instead? I know all the transfer laws pertaining but not after I am deceased. Thanks in advance!
