Purchasing hand guns in Louisiana?

I would like to purchase a handgun for my boyfriend for christmas from Academy Sports & Outdoors. What are the procedures and will i be able to just give it to him? or will we need to fill out some kind of paper work? this is all brand new to me!

Well if your giving the gun as a gift and the receipient is not barred from owing it then its legal. You also don’t need to do anything special when you give it to him as it is considered a private transfer and not regulated. There is no waiting period in your state. You will have to fill out a 4473 form, the dealer will help you if you need it and wait for the phone call backround check to clear. I assume you don’t have any felonies on your record. On that form they ask for your social, its optional and I would say not to give it. Plus you cannot abbreviate anything. So you have to write out YES or NO instead of Y or N. And it needs to be your info, not his. You do need to be 21 to buy a handgun from a dealer.

Just for me………………………………………………….

> When the chicken is done,
> Douse pieces in hot sauce mix. Leave
> them in for 10-15 minutes.

Here’s another way to do your chisken wings:

Preparing the sauce:
I use a a cobination of 2 cups Franks Hot Sauce and 2 Tbsp of tub butter. Depending on the amount of wings that are being cooked.

Cooking the Wings:
1.) Thaw the drummettes overnight, (in the refrigerator).
2.) Use a deep fryer, either pan or pot. they both work exceptionally well. Pour vegetable oil in the fryer about 1/3 from the bottom and set the fryer to 400 degrees. Let the oil heat up for about 15-20 mins. This will allow all the oil to become equal temperature.
3. You can either coat the chicken with flour or continue without. PROS/CONS: w/ flour, the wings absorb more oil. W/O flour, the wings have a more crispier texture.
4. Place the Wings in the fryer and cook for 12mins.
5. Once the wings are done, place them in the sauce mixture and coat.
6. Serve with Ranch, Blue Cheese, Celery and Carrots.
