    Firearms from passed away family member

    I just picked out 2 guns from my grandfathers collection. We split all of them between 4 grandkids.
    Picked the Browning Hi-Power 9mm from 76 and the S&W revolver longbarrel in 38 special.

    My question is, do I need his death certificate or do a transfer at all?

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Oh don't worry, they are at home. I just wanted to check with anyone who might know whether or not I needed to do anything.

    Thanks, it's been a couple years. We finally got the grandkids together and opened the safe.
    Missed out on a Remington 700 with scope, and a 410 crack barrel (single).
    The safe was missing his WWII service pistol. We think someone talked him out of it in his last couple years.

    ... and may that person burn in the fiery pits of purgatory. Talking a man out of his own service pistol is a bit like asking him if you can borrow his wife.

    Even if crossing state lines there is a exemption for FFL transfer for inherited firearms. (GCA 68). That service pistol thing errks me... The only time I will buy one off a man is if their heirs do not want it, I would do it to preserve it's history and so it does not end up in some pawn shop or worse...
    Motorcycles and guns, how fun....

    At the time the owner aquired them there was no paperwork to leave a trail, unlike today, so they don t exist. my belief is you got the better of the two in the Browning. Enjoy.

    No requirement to do any kind of paperwork at all.
