    Since I've just turned 18, I want to transfer my rifles/shotguns from my parents names to mine, but have no clue what to do, or where to start for that matter. Then for the tricky part, when my grandpa passed away, I inherited some rifles. Since he is now deceased, how would I transfer those weapons?

    Do you have an FOID card?

    Then it seems to me like dad or mom has you sign a receipt for the guns and keeps it for 10 years:

    65/3. Transfer of firearms; records;
    exceptions

    (b) Any person within this State who transfers
    or causes to be transferred any firearm, stun
    gun, or taser shall keep a record of such transfer
    for a period of 10 years from the date of transfer.
    Such record shall contain the date of the
    transfer; the description, serial number or other
    information identifying the firearm if no serial
    number is available; and, if the transfer was
    completed within this State, the transferee's
    Firearm Owner's Identification Card number. On
    or after January 1, 2006, the record shall contain
    the date of application for transfer of the firearm.
    On demand of a peace officer such transferor
    shall produce for inspection such record of
    transfer. If the transfer or sale took place at a
    gun show, the record shall include the unique
    identification number. Failure to record the
    unique identification number is a petty offense.

    65/12. Transfer of firearms upon death of
    owner or incident to legal proceedings The
    provisions of this Act shall not apply to the
    passing or transfer of any firearm or firearm
    ammunition upon the death of the owner thereof
    to his heir or legatee or to the passing or transfer
    of any firearm or firearm ammunition incident to
    any legal proceeding or action until 60 days after
    such passing or transfer.

    Make sure 24 hours elapses between the actual transfer of the firearm and the "application for purchase" of the firearm (rifles):

    5/24-3. Unlawful Sale of Firearms
    (g) Delivers any firearm of a size which may
    be concealed upon the person, incidental to a
    sale, without withholding delivery of such firearm
    for at least 72 hours after application for its
    purchase has been made, or delivers any rifle,
    shotgun or other long gun, or a stun gun or
    taser, incidental to a sale, without withholding
    delivery of such rifle, shotgun or other long gun,
    or a stun gun or taser for at least 24 hours after
    application for its purchase has been made.


    Although the 24 hour wait may not matter since this is not a sale. But might as well put it on the receipt/bill of sale anyway just to be safe.
