My son passed away this week and he left me five handguns. How does the system deal with transferring under these circumstances?

Re: Inherited

Sorry for your loss. In PA there is no need to do anything for parent/child transfers.(assuming he was a PA resident). If he wasn't, the executor of the will will have to sign as the transferor and you will need to do the paperwork as the transferee at a licensd ffl dealer.

No need to do anything as Bownut said.

Re: Inherited

Sorry for your loss, but the above statements are correct.

The same would apply in reverse, if you pass away. Both being PA residents and the recipient is not prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm, there is no paperwork or transfer required.
