Depends on your state but I'm always a fan of CYA=cover your a$$ so bill of sale at a minimum. Some states require a permit for private transactions, some don't require anything, some require a NICS/State check, etc. Where are you?

The process would be determined by the laws in your state and local municipality and could be different for handguns and rifles. It will be different if one party is a non-resident of the state in which the gun resides.

First- Federal alw- if buying from a NON-DEALER- you can only buy a firearm from another resident of your state. Handgun OR long gun. Second, state law- as the guys already said. Most states do not have registration of ordinary firearms- some do- and registration (if any) is handled at state level.

At a minimum- Bill of sale. Does not have to be complicated- two copies, what gun, what SN, when, from who at what address, to who at what address. Each signs both copies, each keeps one copy.

If someone is not willing to share their name and address, keep walking. After wiping your fingerprints off any gun you handled.
