Good thing we didn't serve in the same units.

I would check the state laws on ccw. I don't think you have to show proof of ownership. When I got my ccw I asked my local sharif office if I had to transfer the gun in my name. My mom bought it for me as a gift when I was about 18. They said no I did not have to put it in my name. They also said a ccw permit allows you to have possession of a hand gun it has nothing to do with ownership. They will check to see if your permit is valid in that state. But things may be a little different here in AL.
Here during a privet sale you give the guy the money he gives you the gun end of story. Could come in handy if you don't wont the gov to know you have it. But then you can be buying a gun that was used in a recent bank robbery. So to cover your own a** you can do a bill of seal.

Even in Illinois we don't have to show proof of ownership if we have a gun. But we do have to prove that we have a Firearms Owner Identification Card.

I have been through livestock checks. You do have to prove the animals you are carrying have their shots and required tests. But as far as weapons the officer in the car can call in the serial numbers to see if the weapon is stolen. Beyond that I have never been asked to prove anything more in over 35 years of travel.

If you are returning from a hunt there are regulations regarding how you handle the meat due to outbreaks of chronic wasting disease. In NC when returning from a hunt you can't bring any part of a game animals spine or brain back into the state. I don't know if people passing through have to meet the same requirements. To be on the safe side it's best to leave the brain and spine of what you kill in the state you killed it. I would hate to know I wiped out the local deer or elk herd because I didn't cut up meat properly.
