Welcome to the FTF. The next time you login, stop by our "Introductions" area and say "Hi".
The best thing to do is to get familiar with the laws of your state. Asking for free legal advice on the internet is not the best source.
A local firearms dealer can assist. The Federal requirement of the BATF 4473 being completed will have to be met if you purchase through a retailer. The form is kept with the retailer for 30 years or if they close shop.
Other state requirements will have to be met. Violating you privacy does not have to be a worry with the firearms dealer, but the state requirements may be something else.
Welcome to the world of firearms ownership, and please, get some training in the safe handling of your new possession.
