I've been browsing this website for a while and thought I would stop by the local forum for some advice.
The short story is my roommate is getting concerned about her safety and has expressed interest in carrying concealed. She has a difficult time saving money and as such, cannot fork over $300-$400 for a decent sidearm. I am in a position to purchase another pistol to add to my own collection and I was wondering what sort of legal repercussions there would be if I were to allow her to borrow one of my pistols. She isn't a CPL holder yet, but there is nothing stopping her from legally obtaining one. The firearm will be mine for all intense and purposes, so I don't think I fall into the category of buying for someone else (I know there is a specific term for this, I just can't think of it). So long as she gets her CPL, is this legal to do? FWIW, the pistol in question will be carried by me until she feels the need to carry for herself.
