    Is it legal to "lend" someone a gun?

    Is it legal to allow someone over 21 who is legally allowed to own a firearm permission to borrow your gun (it's a handgun)? Thanks for any replies.

    You may want to get this moved to ask-a-cop to get the answer you need because it is not possible for someone whose is legally allowed to own a gun to illegally have one.

    A lot is going to depend on your state of residence

    Here it is legal to loan a friend a firearm
    (providing there is no reason they cant have one)

    The second major issue to consider is what will happen to YOU
    should they use the firearm (even in self defense)
    You are looking at BIG civil lawsuit issues.
    If they do something illegal, you could also be looking at
    criminal charges.

    I would be very careful about who I loaned firearms to
    On a clear night, I can see the other deputies emergency lights at least 10 miles away.
    But it isnt flat here LOL

    Depends where you live. In TX, yes.

    The scenario I was wondering about is say a person who is 21 gets pulled over on the way to the range and has a handgun in his trunk that is registered to someone else. For whatever reason the officer searches his trunk and finds it. This person isn't a criminal/is allowed to legally own a gun in the state. Has a crime been committed?

    This is why I am glad we don't have handgun registration in Indiana: simplicity.
