    Has anyone been though it? got a gun given to you in a will? is it a private transaction, or does it have to be taken to FFL and then do the paperwork, etc?

    Some of it depends on state law. If it is in the same state should not be a problem and no FFL needed. If across state lines there maybe a FFL needed. The executer of the will should be able to find out the answer.

    When my father died everything was passed along as he wished. Everything was all in the same state so nothing was needed to be done.

    Gun Control Act has a clause for bequests. Don't have to go through an FFL unless something in state law requires it.

    The only reason I needed to go through a FFL when I inherited my Model 19 was I'm in Nevada, and the gun was in Oklahoma. I didn't feel like making the drive to go get it so we just did a transfer.

    Couple of times they end up sitting in my conference room. Divorces too. :D

    Federal gun law is very accomodating with respect to heirs. Even machine guns can transfer interstate from estate to heir without the normal transfer tax (although all the normal paperwork is still required).
