Interstate transfers of firearms (other than antiques and C&R) must be done through an FFL.

Here's a link to a GREAT thread full of information on the subject.

I don't know...

It is OK for you to buy a gun and carry it across state lines.

If you transfer a gun to a non-resident of your state you probably run afoul of BATFE.

If you go visit someone in another state the when you make the gift (in the giftee's home state) you are no longer transferring it to a non-resident. That might well be fully legal without paper.

You can not gift outside your state of residence, even to a parent or a child, a firearm other than antique or C&R (with appropriate C&R licensing) without FFL transfer, exception for bequest and intestate secession.

Better have an attorney involved if you are claiming the last two.

I am not an attorney.
It would be best to contact a FFL holder in the appropriate state, or contact the BATFE directly with your questions.

All this is good and correct information regarding SELLING and TRANSFER of a gun/firearm sold. I can not find information about giving a gun to someone. Do you have a link to any?
Thanks.

An interstate transfer has a FFL requirement regardless of gift or sale. The law uses the term "acquire."
