Regarding last post from clr8ter regarding a problem with sale: Yes, it can cause problems, but that is why common sense plays into to any such transaction. To sell it to some guy you don't know, who says "psst hey buddy" you might be asking for issues. For someone with a current Concealed Pistol License, there is at least that amount of vetting for his background. If he is a long time business owner in the community, who many people have known and liked, that is also a plus. In Michigan it is not illegal to sell long guns (rifles and shotguns) to a private individual without having to go through the FFL dealer to do so. Pistols are another matter. They must be handled differently, where you get a pistol purchase permit from the local law enforcement agency, have a FFL dealer to a background check, transfer over the pistol S.N. to the new buyer, who is required to send in the completed forms back to the the same Law Enforcement agency that issued the pistol purchase permit, and keep a copy of the "buyers" record form for a period of time (I think it is 30 days) until the form is sent to the State Patrol for their input into their database.

Currently there is legislation in Michigan that wants to do the same for long guns as they do for handguns and it is being fought by NRA and other pro-gun groups in the state.

Meh. You do what you want. I'm going to consider a $25 fee (paid by the buyer) VERY cheap insurance. Once an FFL does the transfer, NOTHING should ever come back at you. It's someone else's problem at that point.
I don't see what the problem is. Everybody is being nice, and getting along, and I, for one, am learning stuff. So, if you don't like the discussion, don't look at the thread. Or, simply cut to the chase, and close it.
Is there an age limit for a thread, after which we kill it?
