I am purchasing a pistol for my son for his birthday. I want to give it to him on his Bday but want to know when I do the purchase paper work will I have to put it in my name or is there a way to put it in his and have him sign later? I am cheap and don't want to pay twice!
No paperwork needed to transfer it to your son as long as he is a PA resident and over 21.
The lawful age of unsupervised possession in PA is 18.
To buy from a FFL, or transfer through an FFL, requires you to be 21. State laws determine ages of possession and private transfers. Federal law governs interstate transfers and commercial transfers, and the transfers of guns to those under 18.
If you have to track your game, then you aren't using a big enuff gun.
