borrowing question
#1
So I have a question about borrowing or letting someone borrow a handgun.

Situation is a good friend of mine has a 1911 on layaway, he wants to sell his glock tomorrow. Now I already tried talking him into keeping the glock as well but that's a lost cause. Sad

He is not a prohibited person and we both have our LTCF can I legally let him borrow one of my pistols?

From what I've read I believe I can let him borrow one of mine for the time being so he isn't unarmed for the week or two it takes him to get his new purchase. But just want to make sure.

I think this is the section of the statutes that applies

I think you are correct. I am not a lawyer nor am I versed in the law.

Thanks that should be the answer to my question.

I just want to make sure because I would hate to lose one of my firearms or either one of our rights if he were to be stopped and my firearm ran in the database and it comes up in my name not his. Anybody know what would one do in that type of situation.

If you are concerned about the "database", maybe write a note including your name and address and contact # saying you're are loaning so and so the so and so pistol, serial# so and so until the borrower takes possession of his new firearm currently on layaway.
I don't know if this has ever been done or if a LEO would give two shits about such a note, but it's all I could think of to maybe stop you from going down and going through the hassle of retrieving your firearm at the police station.
