    Have you spoken to PLB? Does his wife have a license?

      I have no spoken to PLB yet, and his wife does not have a license. Wanted to ask here first.

        The easiest thing may be to wait if his wife does not have a license; she will have 15 after departure to bring them to an FFL with his death certificate to legally transfer (I don't think they have to go to PLB).

          SCPD told me that even if there is a will, there is still approximately 6 month waiting period for probate

          I thought the owner can request any other Suffolk resident to safe guard the pistols upon his passing or inability to care for them

          I did this for my brother who had a Suffolk license, I have a Nassau license I took the handguns(6) to Bruce at Hunters EssentialsI transfered 2 to my license, the rest were sold. My sister in law then sent a copy of the death certifacate, his lincense to Suffolk PLB with return receipt, all done. This was like 3 years ago.

            I would transfer all guns to an FFL now. Then you have time to decide what to do with them. Otherwise the 15 day time limit following death comes up fast.

              How many pistols are you talking about? If it's a significant number it may be easier to bring them all to a gun shop to have them sell on consignment. Otherwise you're going to have x# of transfers to your license then x# transfers to buyers and visits to the PLB to add and remove from your license.

                  That makes it a lot easier. I'm really sorry to hear about your friend's illness.

                Sorry to hear about your friend. Prayers for a recovery and remission so you or his family won't have to deal with this.

                  Just spoke with his wife, they are moving him to Hospice any day now, so i'm not sure he will beat it this time.

                    Sorry about your friend.

                    To echo others here - don't notify PLS, go to your favorite gun shop a.s.a.p. and talk them about it. It may be a pretty quick and easy fix.

                        It's not possible to legally transport those guns to a gun shop unless it's done by your ill friend (obviously not happening), or by the survivor after his passing, or by someone who is exempt from licensing such as a PO friend. Otherwise whoever takes them to the gun shop is in illegal possession. It is, however, possible for the FFL to make a house call to pick up the guns, but I don't know of anyone who will do that.

                          Is everybody paying attention -------------------------------------------- this is precisely why your spouses need a handgun license ---

                          Even if she had no interest or owns one herself -- it makes transferring then selling easier ----- class !
