    I'm selling a rifle FTF tomorrow.

    Do I need a bill of sale or anything special? :o

    Technically no. You can make one up to make yourself feel batter, but AFAIK you do not need anything. Maybe ask him if he is a felon, if he says no, then... :hsugh:

    I would write up a bill of sale, have the buyer put his name and address. I would ask to see a drivers license, CHL if they have it.

    Just ask to see his licence to make sure he is a TX resident, have him give you the cash, give him the gun, thank each other and leave.

    The seller in a FTF transaction in TX is required not to knowingly transfer a firearm to someone prohibited from owning firearms or that the seller has good reason to believe will commit some misdeed with firearms.

    Otherwise, some sort of bill of sale, writing down their DL #, seeing their CHL if they have one, etc is good six-covering.

    for the most part you dont need anything, but most people type up a bill of sale for peace of mind. which usually doesnt matter unless its notarized.

    id just take the last 4 dig of their TDL and birthdate along with full name as it is on the TDL and call it a day. usually thats all LEO need to find ya file.
