Blog: What To Do Before Buying a Gun as a Gift
by: Inland Empire Gun Owners
With the winter gift-giving season rapidly approaching, gun stores across the country are enjoying an uptick in sales. They are also preparing for a wave of customers trying to return gifted firearms on Monday the 26th, unhappy to be reminded that those items are non-refundable and must instead be sold back at a considerable loss. Customers don’t like losing money and retail employees don’t like dealing with unhappy customers, so do everyone a favor and don’t buy someone a gun as a surprise gift.
In my time working behind the counter at a gun store, I have encountered numerous examples of people trying to buy firearms as gifts for family members. I hate to stereotype, but in my experience, it’s almost always a middle-aged or older man shopping around for a concealed-carry handgun to get his less-gun-savvy wife or daughter into shooting. Whenever a lone male customer asks, “what’s a good gun for a woman,” I always go through the same script and refuse to sell unless the actual recipient is present. This isn’t for legal reasons; in Virginia as in California, it is perfectly legal to transfer almost any firearm to a direct family member without any government paperwork or background check. The real reason is that there’s no guarantee the recipient actually wants that specific make and model or can even manipulate all the controls.

The #NotMeIE program is a mentor/mentee referral service run by women for women to help them:
Obtain firearms training
Get assistance in choosing and purchasing a firearm
Obtain a CCW
How does the program work?
A potential client can fill out the application for service on our website. Once received, the project manager reviews the application and assigns the client to an Ambassador. An Ambassador then contacts the client to begin the process of walking them through whatever their firearm needs are. After the client has been successfully helped, their case is closed, and the Ambassador is given a new client to work with. Some of our Ambassadors are also NRA certified trainers. They are very knowledgeable in all aspects of firearms training and purchasing. IEGO also offers an online CCW seminar once a month. Check the IEGO website for upcoming dates. If you are an experienced gun owner and are interested in becoming an Ambassador for the #NotMeIE program please reach out to Karla at [email protected]
