    My dad passed away about a month and a half ago, and I'm wondering what, if anything, I need to do legally other than go pick up the guns and bring them home.

    He's got a Marlin .22 bolt-action, and a Femaru P37 .380, they'll be my first guns... :hs:

    Nothing I don't think. I don't think you are legally required to do anything in your state to inherit firearms.

    You're in georgia. Don't worry about anything.

    but if you have any doubts I am about an hour away, you can drop them by me and I will make sure they dont fall into the wrong hands.

    Yeah, you're in the clear. You don't have to declare them or anything. You might record the serial numbers for reference in case they are ever stolen but that's just for you.
