    As I am not one to leave to others to find the answers to questions I've posed, here is the applicable code from GCA 1968 that covers the anticipated transaction under consideration.

    THE GUN CONTROL ACT OF 1968

    TITLE 18, UNITED STATE CODE, CHAPTER 44

    § 922 Unlawful acts.

    (b) It shall be unlawful for any licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to sell or deliver—

    (1) any firearm or ammunition to any individual who the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe is less than eighteen years of age...

    (2) any firearm to any person in any State where the purchase or possession by such person of such firearm would be in violation of any State law ...

    (3) any firearm to any person who the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, does not maintain a place of business in) the State in which the licensee’s place of business is located, except that this paragraph (A) shall not apply to the sale or delivery of any rifle or shotgun to a resident of a State other than a State in which the licensee’s place of business is located if the transferee meets in person with the transferor to accomplish the transfer, and the sale, delivery, and receipt fully comply with the legal conditions of sale in both such States (and any licensed manufacturer, importer or dealer shall be presumed, for purposes of this subparagraph, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, to have had actual knowledge of the State laws and published ordinances of both States), and (B) shall not apply to the loan or rental of a firearm to any person for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes;


    I'll probably have less hassle if I wait until I acquire a GA operator's license before I attempt to receive the transfer. This sucks though, because the prospect in question surely will not wait until I receive my GA identification.

    Mods please delete this post. The context was intentioned as a response for an earlier thread I opened. Accidentally I posted it as a new topic.

    But somebody might want to read it sometime! :D

    Seriously, you can delete your own posts by hitting the "edit" button.
