Well put. Another reason gun show are a put off to me.Guy next to me at the last gun show sold three AR's he "built". All three were "tactical" - you know the genre. Yes, he sold all three - without background checks as he was a private seller. Last one went to a fat lady accompanied by a younger lad with saggy britches who's head was on a swivel the entire time. Asking price was over $600, don't know what they settled on but it was cash. The other two were similar guns. Cheap red-dot sights, collapsible stocks, foregrips. Two went to "regular-looking" males, also cash without background checks.
"What's it worth?" ...I suppose what it sells for and what risks one is willing to take. Playing "Spot The BATF" or having a crime gun traced back to me is not worth a couple hundred bucks to me. Buy parts cheap, sell parts at a profit, let someone else play games ..or sell to an FFL. Might lose money, won't lose sleep. My fun has been putting a few together for my own use/entertainment, each for a specific sporting purpose, not urban warfare. Anyway ....whatever turns your crank..
This doesn't mean it was "built".An AR that someone built for themselves is worth nothing to me.
1)In most states the only requirement is making sure the guy is a state resident. Why go out of your way to create extra papertrail for the surveillance state (the greatest danger to the Republic) to weaponize against We the People?1)One place you don't want to be is the link in the chain that violated a law when the doo-doo hits the fan. So, what's my gun worth? Not me in a courtroom, even as a witness, let alone a defendant.
2) Meeting in a parking lot with someone you don't know? Really bad idea.
I agree with you. Only problem is once you've done a transfer on a new gun with the 4473, that gun can be easily traced to you. Records start with the importer or manufacturer since 1968 on new ones, but factory records still exist on many older ones, too. As I understand current guidelines, selling over six in a year for profit can be considered an "unlicensed dealer" - now that's a rumor, not a fact known to me nor verified by any ""official" anything.1)In most states the only requirement is making sure the guy is a state resident.

We NEED as many paperless firearms in circulation as possible to minimize that threat.
Criminal activity by robbers and the like is a trivial threat compared to the neo marxist takeover of our institutions and government (s).
We should all do the absolute minimum required by law not one iota more.
2) It's Freedom. Some of my best friends I met this way.
And it's his first post. I quit answering questions when people obviously come here just to use other people instead of contributing in some way.It’s been a week now since the op made this thread and still hasn’t replied. Pretty sure he disappeared never to return lol. Again, it’s one of those users thats creates a thread just to waste our time, we all pitch in to help and they take off, smh.
