So I did some searching in the forums and found a bunch of good information on in-state inheritance, but I wasn't able to find much regarding out-of-state inheritance transfers going in-state. Here's my situation: Unfortunately, my father (a Michigan resident and licensed firearms owner) passed away on Friday morning. His will (which has only been summarized to me, I haven't actually read it myself) basically said that the family gets to 'pick and choose' what we want of his remaining possessions (outside of a handful of named items which go specifically to my stepmother, such as the house, etc), with my brother and I getting 'first choice'. My dad had a bunch of pistols, rifles, etc, and after much discussion with the rest of the family I was hoping to be able to transfer one or two of them to me. However, since I'm a Medford, MA resident, I *think* that's going to be complicated. My stepmother doesn't have the Michigan equivalent of a License to Carry, and the firearms weren't specifically named in my dad's will. What do I do in order to legally transfer the firearms from my deceased dad in Michigan to myself in Mass?
