    I am wanting to try to sell/trade my HK USP9 at a gun show next weekend. The thing is, I am only 20 and the gun is in my moms name :X In GA you can buy rifles at 18, but no pistols. I have always heard that you can buy a pistol from a private party at 18, just not from a shpo/store or anything like that. So do you think I could get a bill of sale from my mom saying I bought it from her, and legally sell/trade it for cash or a rifle at the show? Or would this not work? Any ideas would be great..

    Your best bet is to try to get your mom to go with you, I've been to gun shows here where they wouldn't let you in if you were under 21 unless you were with someone over 21. I'm not sure they would consider it a private party transfer at a gun show either.

    Yeah that's what I'm not really sure on. Since I am selling to a dealer if they could consider it private party. But I might be able to sell to anyone, as long as I'm not buying another pistol.


    Platinum_Thunder - It has been a great gun. I never had one single problem with it. When I turn 21 I want to get another just in a compact.

    You cannot legally sell nor buy if you are under 21; period.

    Upon the sale, since you probably look under 30, most likely they are going to card you just to cover their butt.

    As far as private parties go, it still does not matter. It is the sellers responsability to at least know they are selling to someone of age. If they sell a gun to you and you get caught with it, they will be contacted and probably have charges brought upon them. Most likely, if they are smart, a private party would check proof of age to cover his own ass.

    You have to have your mom sell it, if it's in her name, it's her gun. It's just like a car.


    And she should sell it to me, my .45 needs a little brother.

    well, i'll tell you one thing: you can't transport it legally to and from the show without someone 21 in the car with you. so, if you're going to get it there legally, just have that person come in with you.

    i'm guessing you're thinking about trying to sell this thing at the eastman show this coming weekend? if so, keep in mind that sherriffs check all firearms at the door and ziptie the slides. if you don't look 21, they may hassle you at the least, or arrest you at the most. there are plenty of LEOs walking around in and out of uniform, too. so, it's not a smart move, just because possession of it is illegal under 21 in GA.

    What is so wrong with the USP? I've had NO problems with mine, none of my friends have had problems with theirs. Most people that I know who have owned one, love them.

    footratfunkface - good point, i forgot about transporting it. I've went to firing ranges and stuff with no problems before, but I would guess they will be a little more strict at the show. And yeah, it was the Eastmans show.

    Here is a pic of it. If you need more let me know. I would like to get $550 for it. I Have 2 holsters for it as well.

    I originally wanted one a little smaller (usp compact) but since I am not 21 I will have to wait. So I am just wanting to get a good rifle for now. It has about 300 rounds through it.

    lame... What kinda gun show only lets 21+ in? 18+ is the law

    Actually you can buy from a private party when you're under 21... I myself have boughten a pistol from others, legally, and I wasn't 21. I'm not sure if this is everywhere... but here in Minnesota you don't have to register your guns... unlike lets say New York. Any private sales arnt keep track of, and you don't have to tell them you sold or bought a gun. If the weapon was used in a crime I'm sure they could track you down from the original buyer... if the gun is newer... but if it's an older gun they wouldn't know. Also anyone over the age of 18 can legally own a pistol... so let's say you're 19 and your dad gives it to you... it's now yours, and you can bring it to gun ranges, have it in your house, etc.. legally.
