    I'm visiting my Bro-in-law in ID (I'm from WA) and he has a revolver and a couple rifles I might be getting from him (either gift or buying if it makes a difference ). How does a FTF transfer work when it's in different states? Also, does it matter that he is family (my wife is with me if it needs to be blood relative). TIA

    I believe it is a no-can do. Go through FFL.

    PS, we're right at the border so we can go into WA if it helps.

    You are under federal guidelines when you are residents of two different states.

    The "loan" part is the part I'm interested in. He's got in a legal bind so mostly I need a way to hold onto them if his situation goes south.

    If you are just holding them, then you should be fine.

    If you plan on retaining them, then you need to go through an FFL. He still owns them so if they get taken in a settlement or whatever, the court is entitled to them.
