Q: Regarding straw purchases: a wife purchases a gun. Gun is defective and needs to be returned to manufacturer. It is taken back into inventory for shipment to manufacturer. Husband is in store and the business owner wishes to make a replacement gun available. Can husband fill out 4473 with intent to give new gun to wife as a gift instead of making her come to the store and fill out 4473? If husband’s intent was simply to avoid having wife come into store and he is filling out 4473 in place of her, would that be classified as a straw purchase? What is the preferred means to handle this situation?
