    Save yourself the hassle and just giver her the money. Any handgun you purchase will need to go through a FFL from one state to another.

    WalkingWolf has given you some sound advice to keep you out of a possible conflict.

    personally, i would go window shopping w/her in VA to assure she doesn't get an over eager salesman trying to dump a worthless piece of iron that isn't suitable for your sister use or anybody else for that matter...(yes yes, i know it isn't suppose to occur but...reality bites!!)

    If something is wrong for ONE person to do to another, it is still wrong if a BILLION people do it.

    Not just handguns, ANY gun that has to cross state lines to go to a new owner has to go through an FFL, IIRC. I've heard it isn't really enforced that much on long guns, but better safe than sorry.

    hey K. good answers by WABBIT and WW.

    here is the way it works if you are interested. you will pick out a gun at a dealer in NC, or if you already have the gun. you then pick a dealer near your sister. they will probably charge you a transfer charge. 15- 50 dollars. you or the dealer, will ship the gun to the dealer near her. they will then do a check on her and she can then take possession of the firearm

    tell her she didn't need a permit to carry. so tell her to carry and carry often
    Luke 22:36 ; 36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    "guns are like a Parachute, if you don't have one when you need it, you will not need one again"

    i you call a CHP a CCW then you are really stupid. period.

    pistol purchase

    I'd make sure she helps pick it out. That worries me more than gifting her one of your guns (even if you buy it very recently before the transfer.

    Keeping in mind that you are not selling it, she is not buying it, and is just in possession of the gun. I do not advocate breaking laws, but the ATF web FAQ says:
    --
    Q: To whom may an unlicensed person transfer firearms under the GCA?
    A person may sell a firearm to an unlicensed resident of his State, if he does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the person is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law. A person may loan or rent a firearm to a resident of any State for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes, if he does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the person is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law. A person may sell or transfer a firearm to a licensee in any State. However, a firearm other than a curio or relic may not be transferred interstate to a licensed collector.
