    Do you have to do the transfer through a FFL?

    If it's a face-to-face transaction, no. But a receipt of some kind is a good record to keep.

    As long as the friend can legally own the gun and you both live in the same state and your state does not require registration or FFL transfer..........

    Oregon used to have the common sense selling rule ,ie they look crazy, you know that they're a criminal they said they wanna kill someone etc etc... it changed to a background check that cost around 13 bucks and a bill of sale on all firearms here. Call a local gun shop or packing.org

    In texas, private sale from person to person is legal. No paperwork, plus your friend doesn't even have to be 21.

    TX has no gun registration and it isn't registered on the federal level (kinda). The original 4473 (yellow paper) will have your name on it but all you have to do is have a bill of sale to your friend and you are fine.

    come get some.
    A handgun registration system has time and time again come under fire, and according to Michigan State Police, it is a safety inspeciton only.
    that being said, they keep a detailed list of their safety inspections.
