First off, when you buy/sell any handgun in PA - it has to be done with a dealer's involvement. They do the insta-check and fill out the de-facto
handgun registration papers with the PA State Police.
The exceptions are between immediate family, inheritances. That's no one's business.
Our PA Constables are freakin cop-wannabees and are outta control, like most LEO these days. Unless you looked 14years old, your handgun was none of his business.
But next time - be more discrete leaving your guns readily visible.
As for long-guns; you can buy and sell long-guns face/face as long as you
are being reasonably certain that the transaction complies with state and federal regs - over 18, not an obvious criminal.
Only the BATF is allowed to sell to obvious criminals vis-vis GunWalker... but I digress.
