Shotgun sale

Postby surfrat » Tue Feb 18, 2014 11:33 am

Is it o.k. to sell a shotgun to someone from another state face to face. No ffl transfer?

Check state regs. It's ok in Florida.

I called the va state police firearms transactions division and was told that they would not answer any questions about private sales. No help at all. I tried to explain that I needed to know if I had to do a ffl transfer.

If it was sold new , say , in the 90's and there is no record on long guns , YES !

After that date , there was record of where it was sold last , so , You make the Choice ?

For me , it depends on Who I'm selling too . Face To Face is one thing , to a unknown ?

The only way you can be traced back to you is if the person you sell it to try's to swap it to their name then they might be a issue... But I would at least make a bill of sale just in case at least for your records. My grandfather was a gun smith here in Alabama and he would sell to individuals from other states and he never ha issues as long as it was a clean gun meaning never involved in a crime

For long guns, it's perfectly legal in all States.

For handguns, interstate transfer requires that the gun be shipped to an FFL holder in your State of residence, and legally transferred to you from your FFL.

Don't know if it's "okay", but I've done it.

Not in California. No gun (long gun or hand gun) sales without an FFL and a 10 day waiting period. :fingerpt:
Benelli - Cordoba (20 ga. & 12 ga.)
Browning - 725 Sporting (12 ga.), Maxus (Hunter & MAX-4 Stalker)
Franchi - Renaissance (20 ga.)

Can you imagine what a beaurocratic nightmare it would be for the feds to keep up with all shotguns? Gun shows, personal sales, pawn shops, stolen guns, guns taken apart and put back together again in another configuration. It would be impossible to keep up with. :help:

Id ask for some ID and do a bill of sale. Write down the license number on the bill of sale.. when in doubt CYA

That's a good rule of thumb......but it won't prevent you from selling to an ATF agent if the transaction takes place in a state that requires the sale to go through an FFL holder. Selling ONLY to someone you KNOW is the best idea....and that isn't foolproof.

Contact a FFL holder in your home state. They will be able to answer your question and tell you what is legal. When I ship a gun out of state to a FFL holder, I get a copy of their FFL for my own records. They always get a zerox copy of my driver's license.
