    In VA if one was to gift or sell a hand gun to someone privately, would they need to go through a FFL?
     
  2. No. I don't live in VA, but this has been covered here, and I'm 99.9% sure you can just make the swap.

    FTF transfers do not need to go through an FFL in VA.

    why? as long as you don't know they're not legally able to purchase, that's all that should matter in the eyes of the law.

    well, it legitimizes the purchase in my eyes. if there's a way to prove that the person - a stranger - is not a felon/not mentally handicapped/mentally unstable etc., then i'm not worried that he's going to try to rob me in the process of the exchange. i know there are other variables, but it sure makes me feel better about meeting a stranger and trading or selling a GUN
