I was curious if there is an alternative to using sites such as GunBroker.com that require credit cards, to either advertise or sell firearms online. The issue is I have a few guns I'm wanting to sell, but I don't currently own a credit card to register on these sites. :( Any help would be much appreciated.

if you have a checking account, you can get a debit card. if that debit card has a visa/master card/ etc. logo on it, it also works just like a credit card.

hmm, what about a "simon gift card"? it's pretty much a debit card, and it has a visa logo on it (I think, it may be mastercard).

You can check around for a local forum where people negotiate face-to-face sales. In Oklahoma the Oklahoma Shooters Association has a pretty good trading post forum. This is kinda like the dreaded GunShow loophole that you hear so much about. Remember, anytime you're making a private sale with someone you don't know you want to document the sale and make sure you take appropriate safety precautions...also check local laws in your area, because my state is fairly gun loving. You might not have this option in some areas.

Good Luck

What state do you legally reside in? I am interested in private purchase in North Carolina. None of this licensing and online nonsense.

NC does not have any laws limiting any private sales between NC residents other than the mental defect/known felon/under 18/otherwise reasonable private sale prohibitions in every state. seller gives gun, buyer pays money deal done and perfectly legal. Of course it makes sense for folks to keep a private record of the transaction which I would do if I were selling, but that record is held on paper by the seller and not on a DHS "prime target" database.

Indiana like-wise

train,Indiana is a lot like NC on private sales. I usually carry blank bill-of-sale forms to gun shows with me+provide for the buyer also. Usually IN. Personal Protection permit # is usually placed on this BOS also. Mainly just to CMA on the slight chance of getting something "Hot":eek:

sounds great, now if I can just find someone in NC that wants to sell their guns at a premium price...

Just in case anyone living in NC reads this...I'm looking for a legal and private purchase. Interested in buying 2-3 handguns (9mm, .40 and .45) and at least two rifles, depending on price. Piece by piece or all at once.

Let me know if you know someone that is interested.

looking for private purchase in NC

You may have read my posts on other pages but I am looking to purchase 2-3 handguns (9mm, .40 and .45) and at least two rifles. These can be piece-by-piece or all at once if you are selling the right guns. I am only interested in a legal and private sale. I am happy to provide my name/ID/address/etc for your private records. Call me crazy, but I've never liked the idea of a gun linked to my name and personal records sitting in a DHS and FBI database.

Anyway, in NC there are no restrictions on private sales between state residents so only reply if you are a resident of NC and if you are serious about selling a legal (not stolen), firearm is excellent working condition.

...and if you are not, but know someone that might be interested do us a favor and spread the good word.

Thanks all,
God Bless

private buying

I believe NC requires purchase permits from the Sheriff, maybe just for stores though...
in NC you do need the permit unless you have your ccw with that your good to go and so much easier as some will still run your info through atf with just the sheriffs permits. just talking from experince lol.

You better check NC laws. Not a lawyer, but last time I looked, they still required a "pistol purchase permit" from the Sheriff, even for private sales.

i have a friend who sold a few guns to private parties, but they all had CCW's .. i was just told (yesterday at gun show) that he needed to have the same paper work done that a dealer does .. now i was informed of this by a dealer, so i don't know if that's gospel or just hype by the dealer .. but i personally sure wouldn't sell a gun to someone who didn't have at least the "Permit to Purchase" and boat load of ID ..

I would sell on a forum. If you offer a good piece at a fair price it will sell. Period. You will probably have to ship to an FFL license holder. Your buyer will find that person and they will send a copy of their license to you. Once you have received payment and a copy of the FFL you can ship the gun. I am not sure but I don't think you can use the USPS unless you are shipping from one FFL to another FFL. You will probably have to use Fedex but again I am not sure of that.

I have a new .40 Springfield XD I could sell for the right price

Springfield XD .40 Brand new (less than 50 test rounds). I would take $550 for it but only in a private sale. I despise the thought of anyone having my name and numbers on a database. I live in Hickory if you are interested. Gun comes with case, gun lock (if you are into that) and holster. If you live nearby or don't mind the drive I can meet you nearby.

Better do some reading. Am on the road, cannot run full research, but I think NC requires a purchase permit for handguns INCLUDING FACE TO FACE PRIVATE SALES.

A pistol permit is required to buy a handgun in NC if the buyer does not have a CCW. You can get 5 permits per year, for $5 each, following a background check at a cost of $25 (at least it was..) of course. From start to permit, 2-3 days.

With a CCW you are allowed unlimited handgun purchases.
