    selling to a stranger via internet, face to face
    should I insist on keeping any kind of paper trail, or should I just take cash and hand him the gun?

    The two guns I've sold face to face I made up a bill of sale and got basic information from the person; just their name, address and signature. Neither time were they opposed to it but YMMV.

    i'd probably do this
     
  10. Another way... only sell to people with concealed permits, and simply ask to see the permit and their drivers license to make sure they are who it says on the permit. At least you know they weren't criminals at the time they got the permit, and you can feel good that you made a reasonable attempt to make sure you weren't selling to some piece of shit.

    .
    I also add that by signing I agree to the state and local laws that I am able to own a firearm.


    This way if something does happen say like hes a felon police cant come back and try to nab your ass

    you start making the guy fill out a bill of sale and he may walk, I know I would. Nothing required in Texas just take the cash and leave

    True, but as a seller you can refuse to sell it if they do not. Personally I like some information incase the firearm gets used in a crime later on. It may not even be the guy you sell it to, it might be the guy he sells it to or that steals it from him.

    Ok I can always find another seller :wiggle:


    But lets say the guy is a felon and the police found it was you they can come back with aiding and abiding a felon.

    So yea paper work trail > going to jail

    I just buy/sell the gun and leave. I don't need to know where the guy lives and I don't want him to know where I live.

    How the hell would the gun EVER be traced back to you if the gun was later used in a crime? Did you register the firearm's serial number when you purchased it? I know I certainly didn't.

    If the guy is a felon and uses it in a crime, is caught and confesses that he bought it from "some guy in a parking lot" who cares? He doesn't have your name or information (although there might be an email trail arranging the sale), but the law states that you cannot KNOWINGLY provide a felon with a firearm. If you didn't know, they certainly aren't going to subpoena email or forum posts to track you down for selling the gun.


    In Ohio, you can only sell FTF to another Ohio resident IIRC, so all I would ask is to glance at their driver's license( or even simpler, just ask if they live in Ohio), ask if they are legally allowed to own a firearm, exchange cash for gun, and be done with it.

    For this reason, if the firearm is modern and the manufacturer is still in business, they can trace the serial number back to the gun shop that transfered it. If that gun shop keeps the paperwork from when you bought it and the paper trail stops at you, well then you are in a heap of crap.
