    It was a gift to you. It's your gun now. As juwaba pointed out, we are not required to register guns in Texas. If you buy one from a dealer who has a Federal Firearms License (FFL) you would be required to fill out a 4473 form, but that is not registration, although it can sometimes be used to track down a gun which was used in a crime. If you buy or are give a gun by another Texan, no paperwork is required.

    Enjoy your new gun.
