    If a fine gentleman wanted to sale me his pistol (private party to private party) what would we need to do to make sure we're legal?

    (Specifics: we both live in TN)

    :ugh: Except that ATF has no jurisdiction over this sale.

    Check your state and local laws. Its best to find them on the internet as most police don't really know the laws. There is way too much misinformation around, i.e. 18 for a rifle no matter what, 21 for a handgun no matter what, all guns must go through a dealer, etc.

    it's illegal to do a face to face sale in Tennessee, all sales must be done through lawyers and approved by a member of the local clergy that both parties agree on.

    The best info I can find, ironically, is on the Brady website which indicates I could buy it from him without going through a licensed dealer.

    I fail at google, I suppose.

    SECONDARY SALES
    Are background checks required on 'private' gun sales? No

    No state requirement that criminal background checks be done on people buying firearms at gun shows, swap meets or through newspaper or internet advertisements. Criminal background checks are only required if the buyer goes to a federally-licensed gun store - all other sales are not subject to the background check.


    You should be fine.

    before actually purchasing a handgun, IMHO you should call local police and get a serial check for the gun, to make sure it is clean... but that is not required, just a suggestion. i would discuss this with the person in advance, to make sure they are cool with it. if not, dont buy the gun. when it comes to the actual sale, do it somewhere with a copier. have a bill of sale with you, seller and buyer sign, then photocopy both photoid's... again just suggestions, but it can save your butt. (and maybe his if you are a retard...)

    I agree on the fact that you should document the sale as well as keep a copy of the ID handy, since if you bought it new the 4473 for that gun is one file with your name on it and if it ever winds up used in a crime and they come looking for you . . . it would be nice to say I sold it a couple years back and here is a copy of the guys ID I sold it to.

    Granted I wonder how many times a gun is recovered at the scene of a crime it was used in?

    I'd be willing to bet the majority of the time a gun is recovered the serial number has already been removed. Which is actually against Florida law.

    Its hard to take anything you say seriously especially when you can't even pass a background check.

    Really though, if you don't know wtf you are talking about and have to resort to saying "it was sarcasm" you probably shouldn't have been speaking in the first place.

    depending on the method used to create the serial number, stamping, laser engraving ect, how much the thief knows and if (s)he put any effort in beyond making the numbers invisible to the naked eye, there are a few methods that can recover serial numbers at least some of the time.

    Face to face should be fine. Just make sure you record the sale and have adequate paperwork for your own protection.

    If you are worried, find a FFL to do it for small fee.

    you are beginning to really annoy me. at first, you were cool and all that, but you have been a real fucking assfuck the last few days. i do not have to explain my self to you, or anyone else. everyone else though seems to get that it was a joke, you fucking douchebag. and newsflash, i CAN pass a background check. i bought my first ak from a gunshow.... AND PASSED THE BACKGROUND CHECK. i cant pass a federal, because they disagree on that "pending charge" so shut the fuck up. i have a permit, obviously im good to go, and i passed a 16 week mental background and criminal background, so fucking shove it twatwaffle.

    I know the name of a great OB/GYN. The office specializes in sand removal. Let me know if you want it.

    FYI...When you have to make a reference to someone having or not having an AV, your argument is weak.

    We need a sub forum ban on you like we did jimmybuffett. You add nothing to this forum.
