I'm in NC and want to buy my adult nephew a graduation present. He lives in the Salt Lake area, so I called the most popular LGS there and explained to them what I wanted to do: Pay for the weapon and have my nephew come by so they can run the paperwork on him before he takes possession. I was told it was a straw purchase! In fact, they said it would be better if I bought it myself then give it to him. This runs counter to what I've always believed a straw purchase was. I spoke with two people there and got the same explanation. have I been wrong all these years?
