Default Firearms Sales Questions

I was wondering what others thought about covering yourself when selling firearms especially with all this gun control stuff going on. I was thinking a bill of sale between the buyer and seller is sufficient but didn't know if others had more experience on this and what their thoughts were.

Also where can a private individual sale a firearm now days? I guess I can see where some sites like this and craigslist are being risk adverse in this litigous society we unfortuntly live in and dont allow but was wondering if you guys knew of any reputable places one can sell a firearm.

Carefull, a couple of their moderators are cry babies.

One thing I like to do with a transaction is take a pic of each others drivers license. If someone has an issue with that than no sale.

I like doing a bill of sale but its kinda like a locked gate. A locked gate only keeps an honest man out. If someone will sign a bill of sale but doesnt want to prove who they say they are then i dont care to do business with them. Gun sales can be a touchy thing. If you are not carefull you can get in some serious trouble.

I certainly understand the bill of sale and the driver license. You have to cover your butt. What I did not understand was the comment about their moderators.

I have a firearm bill of sale form, buyer states that he/she is not a felon, no domestic violence, honorable discharge, not a addict, mentally impaired and few other issues. Not an official state form just a bill of sale form that can be used at private sales to protect seller/buyer, place for ID on both D/L address then of course description of gun, with SN#

I just got new system and not sure how to scan and e mail copy yet ,can snail mail a copy to some one and they can post on forum for others to copy someone send me PM with info if interested Tin Can

My bad. A couple of them need to grow up a little. It seems that they dont follow their own rules.

Not that it would be a catch all, but with the background check required for a concealed carry permit, that would be one thing I would require along with the bill of sale and driver license.

I would complete the sale at a willing FFL dealer.
For a fee of course. As if you were buying/selling it online and shipping it.
That way the new owner does not get it until after the FFL dealer has run the buyer and gun thru the background check system, etc. And thus the feds have it on record that the gun is now owned by someone else.
