    I live in SC and I was thinking about gifting a handgun to my sons mother for home protection. Would I have to take her to a ffl and get it transferred to her or can I just give it to her?

    If she lives in another state, then absolutely, YES.

    If she lives in SC, then these rules apply: http://www.nraila.org/statelawpdfs/SCSL.pdf

    Doesn't seem to be any prohibition against private, person-to-person sales, trades, or gifts of handguns or long-guns.
