I gave one of my friends an 870 for his 17th birthday. He had been talking about how he wanted to get one and fix it up for about 6 months, but he didnt have the money. Went down to the shop and they happened to have one used for pretty cheap. It really made his day.

Yep. Gave one of my friends who was poor at the time and moving into the wilderness a Mosin-Nagant and some ammo for his birthday. I've also given a friend a .357.

Sure have.

I've given guns to freinds on their birthdays and for Christmas.

Most recently, I gave my senior estimator a .50AE Desert Eagle for his 50th birthday. You should have seen his face.

And I've also bartered work for guns.

yes, I gave an XD to my dad for father's day.

Yes, I have in the past and will in the future.
My dad's 45th birthday is coming up in August and I think he needs a .45.
It will be either a Henry lever action 45 LC or a 45 acp Springfield / Kimber / or anything 70 series.

Kind of a Traditional gift for someone who has just graduated college or are about to move out on their own.

from an actual 4473 yellow sheet:

........you are also the actual buyer of the firearm if you are acquiring the firearm as a legitimate gift for a third party.

You bet. I just recently gave my mom an S&W Dick Special. She has a coyote problem when she walks her dog in NM.

I gave my wife a Tomcat for Christmas one year... She "liked" it and shoots and carrys it to this day but come to find out, women prefer a less practical Christmas gift. As in she would have REALLY preferred something else.

Yes. Well not a firearm per se. I gave my step-son a DU* Special Edition Daisy BB/Pellet Gun for his 6th or 7th birthday.

I seem to remember someone (on here?) giving/getting 12GA shotguns to the groomsmen in their wedding party.

1. Got my father a Remington 870 12 gauge pump shotgun for Xmas/b-day gift. This was BEFORE I started boycotting Remington.

2. Got my buddy a Mossberg 500 12 gauge pump shotgun for his wedding gift. He asked for it, so I got it for him. Every new household needs a gun!

Gave my sister a .22

Hell yes I have! The cool thing is, my father just bought my wife a lever-action Henry .22 for her birthday. She doesn't know it yet, but he'll give it to her on Friday!

Guns make pretty good gifts.

I gave the GF a Colt Gov't. model .380 for Mother's Day 5 years ago. It goes where she goes, and sh'e even had to wave it in the face of a potential robber/carjacker once.

I've received 2 shotguns, a .22 pistol and a .357 for gifts. All from GFs. I guess it's pretty obvious what I like.

Gave my father-in-law a new Springfield M1 Garrand for his 65 birthday. Did I mention that he is a die hard jarhead and proud of it.
