    Got a guy that wants to but my XD40 off me and wants to meet FTF. Is there any paperwork that MUST be done? I'm in Texas btw. Is it seriously as simple as take money...give gun?

    here, it is.

    for your protection, you may want to fill out a simple bill of sale and have him and a witness sign it. some people are as anal as wanting to make a copy of the buyer's DL but it should be a cash & carry deal.

    dont be a prick and ask for a copy of his DL. just ask him to see it and verify it is legit.

    Make sure he's over age (DL is the best) and trade for the cash. You can fill out a simple bill of sale if he wants. That's about it.

    as much as you guys dont want to, better just take down his name. easy out for you if he goes and kills someone with it. "here atf, i sold it to joe bob" "k thanks we'll go talk to him"
