I like keeping records of all transactions that I do. So having a bill of sale would help my record keeping.

But to clear it up, having the gun transferred again to the buyer would cover anything and everything>

My local gun shop will allow you to sell items on consignment. You would have to share a part of the proceeds, but they do the all of the paperwork and also have lots of customers looking for used guns.

Nothing to worry about on your end and the items sell quickly. Could be an option at a store close to you as well.

For your peace of mind request I.D. and a bill of sale. Just my 2 pennies.

i make buyers go through a ffl dealer that way its legally theirs and the chain of custody reflects such. so if something naughty happens with a gun i used to own the feds wont come knocking at my door.

As others have stated having an FFL act as transferring agent gets a NICS background check. This will identify any felons or non-citizens. Even if the NICS screws up it is not your problem. Also the FFLs bound volume and the 4473 will support the transfer of the firearm so that any BATF trace doesn't lead to your door.

Call your FFL to make sure what the transfer fee is, here its 30 bucks, other places its 20 bucks. Other than that, thats one of the services they provide, to do a legal and problem avoiding transfer of firearms. IMO, that is 100% the way I would go.

It is much safer to go through an FFL when you are transferring. You can also ask the person to fax/email their state I.D so that you can verify their age and residence if you do not have that information.

You necessarily do not have to, but FFL is much safer.
