Actually it's a regulatory question.
Is it still a straw purchase if I pay the man (an FFL) then have him ship the gun to another FFL out of state?
I ask because I have friends who're always looking for particular guns, live in other places than I do, and are good for the money. Stumbling across something on someone's wish list may also be time sensitive.
Going to jail for doing someone a favor would suck.
I tried asking a local FFL this question and I practically got kicked out of the store for attempting to make a straw-buy.
I am fairly certain that buying it, filling out the 4473, then selling it to my friend and shipping to their local FFL is legal.
Could be wrong. Again, it'd suck to be in prison for being a nice guy.
