People looking to eek out a bigger profit putting greed over responsibility makes me sick.

It's ridiculous to run a sale though a dealer's book if you aren't legally required to.

The first question I ask at a gun show is "do you have paper on that gun?" If the seller does have paper, it better be a smokin' hot deal or I'm not interested.

I have seen lots of private sales at gun shows in value, specifically The Nations Gunshow near Dulles.

Do not sell a pistol to an out of state resident without going through an ffl.

Why is that ridiculous? Some smack ass from Reuters went undercover and asked not one...but 2 guys selling private guns if he could still buy a gun even though he failed a background check recently....and the boneheads sold to him!

People who fail background check's can go to the next state over and purchase one at a gun show, privately. THAT is the very definition of a loophole. A very dangerous one.

Potential, go thru an FFL to prove you sold it. Show will have one or more there selling their services including a background check I presume, maybe even process the buyer's credit card for you. It is a time to maximize the ease and selling price which is NOT the same as getting what you want for it in dollars. Could be less, could be more, but will never be greater! Now make up your mind and DON'T spend it on those women from the dating service.

You let us down with that one my friend.

I recommend a legal transfer because

If you don't do a transfer and the buyer commits a serious crime, drops your gun at the crime scene then the BATF traces the gun to you and the swat team shows up at your house thinking you are the criminal

Whether or not I do it through an FFL I'm getting the buyers info that way if anybody ever says "your gun was found at the scene of the crime" I can prove I sold it and send them to the next guy
