My wife's uncle was living with my mother-in-law when he died a few years ago. He left no will or anything else regarding his personal property. She recently asked me to clean out all his stuff out of the house. In his gun safe I found a sweet 686+ 4 inch. She said "take it if you want it" (I love my m-i-l). What is the process for transferring the gun if the former owner is dead? I assume it was purchased and registered by him originally, but ya'll know what assumptions are worth.
