    I'm thinking about carrying a G19 and I carry a XD9SC right now. I'm not sure if I want to carry a larger gun or not but my friend said i could borrow his gun to carry for a few days to see if I like it or not.

    Is there anything bad about that legally?

    I don't know about your local laws, but around here your CWP is not tied to your actual pistol. So here, it would be perfectly legal to carry a gun that is not your own, unless it's stolen, lol.

    Is it a good idea, no.

    Check your state laws but as long as your friend isn't likely to be offering you a stolen gun I wouldn't worry.

    wtf responses

    if you're legal to carry, you can carry anything under the law (no matter who owns it)

    I think now that I think about it people are maybe thinking that it might be a bad idea in case I actually have to use it it might be bad since it's not in my name. But I'm thinking if a friend is willing to admit he let me borrow it I should be fine.

    Unless he's required to register his gun, there's no paperwork tying gun to owner. So unless his state's permit is tied to the gun, who owns the gun is irrelevant.

    How is it "in your name" or not? Kansas has no gun registration.

    I've carried a friends gun before. It was just too see how it felt and if I liked the comfort level. As long as the gun isn't stolen I don't think you really have anything to worry about.

    When you buy a gun in KS they put it in your name obviously.

    I guess now that I think about it you don't have to to a FFL transfer if you do a Kansas to Kansas face to face sale.

    There's nothing that's "in your name" except the sale transaction. Once you've bought it, nothing is "in your name". You can give it away, sell it, or melt it down and make it into earrings. The Form 4473 isn't a record of ownership. Only a record of a sale.

    The only thing that I'd be concerned about when carrying someone else's gun (if I was sure it wasn't stolen) is whether it reliably fire.

    Glock sends you those little polymer keychains. You could get a mold, melt a frame down and make a run of them.

    No. New York requires each handgun to be carried to be certified on the permit. So quit making shit up. :rofl:

    I wouldn't lend mine out either. But that has nothing to do with whether it's legal or not.

    Actually there are two people I'd lend a gun to. But they both already have more than I do, so it's a moot point.

    I see nothing wrong with borrowing his gun to see if you like it.
