gun purchase question - February 19, 2007, 07:57 PM

My friend is purchasing a gun from another friend. Everything is legit. Is there any paperwork required by law? Do they need to go through an FFL dealer?

thanks!

no. Nothing required by law but I would get the transfer of ownership on paper and have it notorized for that matter. An average FFL won't charge you much at all and it is nice to have for your records down the road.

Nothing required....none of my guns are registered with ATF all purchased from 3rd parties. Just another step in the man keeping tabs on your constitutional rights. Everyone needs a good "drop gun" something that is not registered to you. This way you can use it, wipe it off, and "drop it".

That is why I wipe down guns that I look at with my own cloth! Don't want to leave a stray print around!

here is a copy of email i recieved from VSP concerning this topic.....i sold a firearm a few months back, hope this helps.


Dear Sir,

To privately sell a firearm, it is recommended that you safeguard information pertaining to the transaction such as the date the firearm was sold, the complete name and address of the buyer, and the make, model, and serial number of the firearm. It is unlawful for an individual to purchase more than one handgun within any thirty-day period, even in private transactions, and unlawful to sell a handgun to a non-resident.

Should the firearm ever be located at a crime scene, trace of the firearm will determine the licensed dealer who last sold the firearm and will identify the last buyer of the firearm. To have your name removed from this process, you may consider placing your firearm on consignment with a licensed dealer. This will also ensure that the firearms are transferred only to lawfully eligible individuals.

I trust this information will be of assistance to you. For additional information, please visit our website at http://www.vsp.state.va.us/Firearms.shtm.

Sincerely,

Donna K. Tate, Manager
Firearms Transaction Center
Virginia Department of State Police
Tel: (804) 674-2210
Fax: (804) 674-2791
Donna.Tate@vsp.virginia.gov





====================


PS....for my own records, i also made a copy of the other individuals drivers license also on the bill of sale.

I always heard that if you privately sell a gun you should get a photocopy of the buyer's DL so you have proof of who it went to. I would have them sign and date the photocopy with gun model, serial number, price, and check number.

Swords are crazy. I always thought...if some crook breaks in and see a home-owner with a gun he might expect that. Some dude with a samuri sword coming at them would really get some attention

Instead of a sharp sharp pain, you'd just wouldn't feel it anymore. No pain and you'd get cold real quick.

As far as the legalities go, he's pretty much good to go. Out of curiousity, what type of weapon is he purchasing? I have quite a wide assortment of arms that he may be interested in from trench guns and street sweepers to pre-ban American AR's and absurdly overpowered hand guns. Not a dealer, just a collector.
