Done what? Gifted a handgun to a son or daughter?
I guess the point I'm trying to make is out of all the " name brand " firearms, Glocks, Sigs etc he wanted the Sar.
She's actually not spoiled, just knows that I love her way more than I love any piece of metal or plastic.
In the years since she said that, I cleverly found a handgun I knew she would like, purchased it, and put special grips on it just for her.
She shoots it very well and will be very happy to take it with her when she's a little bit older.
I don't lose any of my favorite handguns.
She's a tall young woman (6'1") with big strong hands, so I put Hertz target grips on this S&W Model 64 for her. It was LE trade-in, looks like office of corrections. The trigger is excellent and she shoots it very well. (She's always been a revolver girl.)

Oh okay, I get it.
I'm not at all familiar with SAR (Search & Rescue???) firearms myself.
Just kidding around - I think I would have chosen a Glock, Sig, or even a Ruger over a SAR if you were gifting a handgun to me.
Proud to realize that I worried about getting her a pretty, brand-name gun that she would like more than I ever worried about what I would get for myself.
Warning: Off Topic
As soon as she's able, her other SD goal is to have a large, loud dog like the ones she grew up with at home.
Someone could ask me ,"How much are your family member's lives worth to you?"
My answer could be, "$35". That's how much the adoption fee was for our newest pup a few months back. He's now 15 months, 100 pounds, and extremely loud.
That is the very best HD for a young lady on her own, IMHO. YMMV.
He has since purchased a Sig 365, Ruger Security 9 compact, Ruger LCP II 380 and a Ruger MKIV Lite.
Good dad. It sounds as if he bought more so you started the passion.
I have Ruger Mark Iv slated for my son. I also plan to get a .357 revolver for him to inherit one day. But, ultimately I’ll likely give him a choice one day. He’s only 13.
Lol, smart strategy in preserving your guns.
If it was bought as a gift and annotated as such on the Form 4473, then it's not a straw purchase.
Thanks for sharing. I’ve never been in that situation so I was unaware you could do that on the 4473
Whats funny is the first one he sent me home with, a rough and defaced Colt 1917, is still my favorite.

Jeepers, and you didn't gift a darned one to good ol' .308 Norma - your best THR buddy.
I feel that if I'm not using the gun on a regular basis and they will find joy in using their Uncle's firearm let them have them while I can see them enjoy them!
You most certainly can buy a firearm for another person as a bona fide gift.
What you cannot do is buy a firearm from a dealer on behalf of another person.
It's immaterial. It possible to buy a gun today, gift it tonight. Or next week, next month, next year.
No such place to note that on the Form 4473.
You can buy a firearm as a bonafide gift and no federal law requires you to tell anyone that "its a gift".
a straw purchase, where the person filling out the 4473 is not the actual buyer, but buying on behalf of another person.
