some states have laws regarding private party sales of firearms. some only have laws pertaining to certain types of firearms. in Texas, you can do a private sale of any legal firearm. (no SBS, SBR, FA or suppressors)

as long as you have reasonable thinking the person is legal to buy a firearm, you're in good shape. EG: if your BIL spent time in prison on drug charges, then they would believe that you woulld have known this and then selling him a firearm wuld land both of you in trouble. but a complete stranger, you have no way of doing a background check. in the past i have done some private part sales, but went through an FFL. if the person balked at that, then i figure they have something to hide and i don't want to eal with them anyways.

I only sell to other CCW holders.

I have a right to choose what I

do, and for firearms purposes, this is

a bill of clean health.

I thought about this long and hard. How

would I feel, if I sold a gun to somebody

who used it irresponsibly? As a reasonable gun

owner, you have to have some set of standards.

Here in Florida I was going to buy a S&W 357 used from someone I did not know. He asked for proof I was a Florida resident, I showed him my CCW and my license, and also said I was legal to buy the gun. He told me he wanted a copy of each before we completed the transaction. I told him there was no way in hades I was letting anyone copy either of those two cards. The deal ended there.

In Florida I was compliant with the existing law for private transfer of a handgun. He told me he wanted to make sure if they changed the law he could prove he sold it to someone. I told him if they change the law, and make it retroactive they will have to build more prisons for those that broke a law that was not a law when the transaction took place. .

He stood firm on his position as did I. I left without the gun. He left without the cash.

That guy might have been from il. We have to exchange foid card information and keep it on record for 10 years for a private sale and the state police recommend a copy of the drivers license also.

Yeah, like hell I'd let someone walk with copies of my info like that.

OP, maybe you should ask those questions BEFORE you do something, if you're concerned......
