what I usually do when I do a trade is get a name make sure they have a pic idea to back it up and and then if they actaully do all that I go and make sure that the gun isn't stolen usually I got to the police station and they can run it and it takes a few minutes but it's a lot better then getting pulled over with a stolen gun. If they don't show me a pic ID and what not I walk away. Also a written bill of sales and signed by both parties before anything changes hands.
