    you dont even need a bill of sale really. But if you want to protect your own ass. Make sure they have a valid WA license, and preferably, a CPL. Make a bill of sale. And then fill this form out. Send it in to the DOL.

    http://www.dol.wa.gov/forms/652004.pdf


    Get 2 hand-written, 1 for you and 1 for the other party if they want. Then make a copy for yourself and send in the original.

    So you're sending it to a FFL? Make sure their FFL will accept packages from non-FFL. But other than that, :dunno: I only do FTF on firearms.

    that's what im doing :wavey:
     
  7. I wouldn't fill one of those things out. :ugh:

    Real simple procedure... say you'll only sell to people with CPL (at least you can reasonably assume they're not criminals.) Then, when it comes to the sale just ask to SEE their driver's license and CPL (to make sure they are who they say they are.) Once you see those things, take their money, give them the gun, and it's done.

    If I bought the gun originally from a dealer. I dont want that serial # to be last listed for me. Passing off that shit to whoever is buying it.

    But if I bought the gun used and was never in my name, ID+CPL is good enough for me.
     
  10. There's no legal requirement to do it though, and, even if after seeing the guy's CPL and ID he did decide to commit a crime with it (or it was stolen from him and used in a crime, etc...) all you have to do is tell them you sold it.
