My brother brought his .22LR target rifle to be fixed because of a clip issue...
When he brought it into the repair area, the guy told him that it is illegal for them to work on it, as he did not buy the rifle, nor is he the owner of it. (It belongs to my father)
He also said.. that you cannot bring the rifle to any range to shoot, unless the owner is there to transport it for you.
Is this true?
The person who owns it has to keep possession.
How to get around it?
Have his Dad fill out a "Certificate of Eligibility" form selling it to his son so he has proof that it is legally his sons. When he gets it fixed, and the father wants it back, have the son sell it back to Dad by filling out another "Certificate of Eligibility" which would give ownership BACK to the father.
Wouldn't the son need a FID lisence however?
+ go through a FFL dealer.
