Default Selling handgun

I have a Taurus 9mm auto I want to sell. What is the best way to make the transaction to protect myself? Use bill of sale and get drivers license info? Anything else? I live in Alabama

Thanks

first of all check and make sure it's legal in your state to do a face to face transaction regarding a pistol. second, you can still use an FFL for the sale, or even find a LGS that does consignments and let them handle it for a small fee. if soemone balks at going through an FFL for the sale, there could be a reason there to give you a clue not to sell to them.

personally, i use an FFL for any firearms sales unless the person is either related to me or a very close friend that i know for a fact is legal to own a firearm. if unknown to me, then i will suggest going through my gun dealer and go from there. people who can't legally own a firearm will do private sales because, they can get around the background check that way, and i won't assist them in this if possible.
