Default Question on sale of handgun, owner mentally incapacitated

Hey guys, I figured someone here would probably know the answer to this, or at least point me in the right direction. It looks like I'm going to get my hands on a relative's handgun (or two). They had a stroke and are not mentally competent. I would like to know what it would take for me to sell the gun(s), seeing as I'm not the 'owner'.

Has someone been designated with the Power of Attorney for said relative ?

Has it been enacted ?

I think they have to go to a licensed dealer to make the transfer

If you do NOT have a pistol permit then I dont know if you could move them legally. SO get a permit first which will take like 3 months to begin with

You don't need to involve an FFL dealer.

Transfer from said relative's permit to buyer/permit holder.


(which might be me once you mention what you've got)

I don't believe any POA has been designated. There's a total lack of planning on that side of the family.

Unfortunately, I don't have a permit at this time (expired years ago).

As to what they are, I don't really know. When it comes time to sell, I'll definitely post up here and give you guys first crack.

Is relative a CT resident?

So you're saying that they're older handguns, and they've been in your possession since before CT required the registration of handgun sales?

Good... that means you can sell them by using your CT Driver License as source of ID, to any valid CT permit holder.

Yes, a CT relative. I think one of them might be fairly recent, within the last 7-8 years. Other than that, I really have no idea. There could be just the one (though I doubt it) or there could be 10. I'm still waiting to find out if they even have the key to the safe.

Thanks for all the good info, guys.

You need to find the executor of the estate. The power of attorney disappeared when he expired. Even a well done uncontested will is likely to take months.

Is there a surviving spouse if so then she would probably get everything.

I still think handguns cant be transferred person to person

If one is an automatic better move quick if you can
