can you purchase a handgun as a gift for someone who has a permit

What I've done in the past is just paid for it, showed up to the store and surprise the person. They just fill out the paperwork and it's theirs.

Let me know when/where you want to surprise me. I'll even leave work early

Yes, but tread very carefully else it may be seen or viewed as a "straw purchase". See page 4 of the ATF 4473 form (Instructions for Question 21.a) which explains generally what is legal and what isn't for gifting a firearm.

Basically the person cannot be a prohibited person (they must have valid pistol permit or valid pistol eligibility certificate), and the other person isn't giving you anything of value in exchange for the handgun "gift".

Even if both persons have a permit it can get shitty if those in power want it to!
