    Question about storing a firearm

    Obviously when you live somewhere, everyone in the house does not need to have a permit for your pistol, even if you leave the house to do errands and leave the gun home. And improper storage seems to target minors getting their hands on them, or even felons, or people who are not eligible to even touch a gun. But what if I own a gun, and leave it a friends residence that does not have a pistol permit. As long as my friend does not leave his place with my gun, is the gun being there against the law? Any input would be appreciated, thank you.

    It is probably not the best idea, but it is not specifically forbidden by law.

    A pistol permit is required when a hand gun is taken out of the house ... your friend is free to use it inside his house for protection.

    both correct, assuming:
    1) your friend is old enough to possess a firearm in his home
    2) your friend is not ineligible to possess a firearm according to his/her criminal history
    3) there are no minors inside your friend's home at any time. if there is, the gun needs to be stored in a manner that makes it inaccessible to minors

    you must know though:
    1) your friend CAN NOT step foot outside his home with your pistol. the moment he clears the doorway with the pistol, he is breaking the law
    2) literally ANYthing that happens with your pistol; you could potentially be legally held liable

    so I too will say it's really not a good idea, for safety's sake in so many ways, as well as for your liability
