Advice from an attorney is WAY OVERRATED!!!!
If you do your own research of the law you will know more than most attorneys do about it. The advice you get here is probably BETTER than most of the advice you will get for MOST attorneys!!!
Man, lawyering (is that a word?) sure has went into the crapper since the days of Perry Mason. Ya, I'm old. I remember watching that show thinking how cool it would be a Lawyer. Funny enough, I wanted to be one up until I hit 15, and grew 5" and 40lbs.in a year. Football took over then.

But, this is another sad addition to the reasons this country just isn't what it used to be.....

I have given Christmas and birthday presents .of firearms ,to friends and family for fifty years. I asked a time or two along the way, and it was ok. Now they are trying to criminalize everything decent but letting in millions of hardened criminals at the same time. A young lady was suspended bor saying "bless You" to another student who sneezed. We better be standing up for ourselves, our children and our Republic and getting rid of these people in Congress, Senate, White House, School boards and /ounty comisssions and elected judges and sheriffs. Too late to start 10 years ago better start now. Make it part of your routine to be at these meetings and run for these positions yourself. Lock the FBI and ATF and whoever else out of the Country without permission and escort by County Sheriff, until we this Infidel out of the White House.

I have been told that in Texas it is legal to do a FTF with another resident of Texas. No paperwork, no NICS, just a handshake and you're on your way. I am selling a handgun on the internet and had a gentleman ask me if we could do a FTF...he is in Houston. Well, since I am new to Texas, I thought it at least a bit wise to get a copy of his DL, and bring it with him.
That's when a flag went up. He told me he does not have a Texas DL, he has a Florida DL. He travels at his work, and does have a lease agreement he would supply. That's when I cam to the forum for help. Had more folks than not, say the absence of a Texas DL is a red flag. The guy emailed me back and stated he has done 3 or 4 of these already. But I just had a feeling that this was a just not a good idea. And as stated by a lot of folks on this post, you just can't be sure of folks' credentials on the net.
Needless to say, I emailed him back about 20" ago and told him we will now have to go through an FFL for the transfer. I will sleep much better tonight. I'm sure folks have been doing this FTF in Texas for years.
I apologize for jumping your post, but I thought since I have a current post about this subject....it was worth mentioning. Paul F.
You were smart to back off this without knowing the law. I had an FFL for a while, so this is what I learned-person to person transfers are ok as long as the buyer doesn't have a felony record. An out of state residence can purchase a long gun from an FFL, but a handgun has to be shipped to an FFL in his home state for a transfer. The ATF has this and other laws and regulations on their website if you want to know more.
