    Most states have no firearms registry. Check with your local LE agency to see if it is even necessary.

    Are you are refering to the Federal Transfer Forms. If so you would need to go to a firearms dealer and fill out new Transfer Forms. They will often charge for this service. In most states there is no law regarding this. The private sale to a person from another state can cause some problems. I would check this with a Firearms dealer in your state.:)

    As long as you have the firearm legally its probably better that it isnt in your name.

    There is no such registry in Florida. In fact Florida state law prohibits it. Are you acquiring the firearm or giving/selling it to someone else ... assuming you are talking about a transfer of ownership of a firearm from one person to another.

    Some ppl will do it for 25 bucks. Some 50. U have to go to a shop or a FFL holder and fill out the paperwork just like you would be buying a new gun. But the guy has to be there that sold u the gun. I believe (not sure bout that part). then u have to do the 3 day or 24 hour wait and go pick it up.

    Absolutely do not fill out any paperwork on this. You have legally aquired the firearm, period. You do not live in New York so do not act like it. Purge the term "register" from your vocabulary except when talking about a motor vehicle. Gun registration is unconstitutional, inconscionable, and inexcusable. The only reason to "register" a firearm is if you want the government to seize it from you at some point in the future. If you REALLY want it to be confiscated from you, just send it to me. I will be happy to provide you with an address in a PM.

    Not necessary. There's nothing to transfer in the state of Florida.

    If someone sees my post as an invitation to go on another Alex Jones LSD trip of the grandest exponential growth of a single idea, go ahead. Just do not be surprised when the thread goes Bye Bye.

    If both parties live in Florida, I believe just a hand written bill of sale
    or note acknowledging the gift (etc.) would be all you need for self
    satisfaction only. If you both can legally own a firearm, nothing is
    required by Florida statutes. This is just my opinion and not meant
    to be legal advice.

    I'm from Georgia and I don't think there is any mechanism to register
    a weapon in Georgia or Florida. I travel to Florida and carry concealed
    there quite often. Just speaking from the Florida statutes I have read
    for my own edification and defense.
