He says as there gifts don't have to have a  defence (other then the details of the places I actually play at ) to keep and use them to play. This that still correct? I just to make sure he isnt just saying it as an easy way to get rid of rifs and I can't any more recent posts on the subject

If they are a genuine gift, given for free with no exchange of money or other items, then that is acceptable.  In the same way a parent can gift a gun to a child (it is illegal to sell to an IF or RIF to a child (under 18 years old)).  Because they are gifts and not being sold then there is no defence required.
