Ive bought and sold quite a few guns but today i had the strangest request.I understand signing a bill of sale to have some type of documentation. This was his request give me some opinions on what yall think

A note about being safe:
---notice---
My gun trading procedures
I want to protect myself and at the same time, this protects YOU.
I will only meet at a very public place where video surveillance is in use.
I will take pictures of you, your car, your DL or CHL, your gun and the paperwork . I suggest that you do the same.
I require a signed bill of sale that includes the statement "I am not legally prohibited from obtaining this firearm" for each of the traders.
We will both sign them and we will each leave with a copy.
I will print these beforehand and bring them to the meet up.
---notice---

Pictures?? Really...

when you accidentally sell a firearm to a felon that you can't prove to ATF
who you sold to it can be a mess for you

taking pictures of individual, license, vehicle will prove to the field
investigator that you've done all you can to be legal

I did the same

not strange at all

If you want that much proof of sale, then why not go ahead and go through an FFL and do a background check?

Agreed might as well make it easy on yourself pay the transfer fee and get it completely out of your name altogether.

I always print and keep the PM where you agreed to the sale. Acts like a bill of sale and has contact info for that person.

Uh.. According to the ATF, as long at you have no reason to believe them to be a felon or otherwise in eligible to own a firearm, you don't have to do a thing when you sell it. No bill of sale, no pics, no recording serial numbers.

Per ATF website:

What record-keeping procedures should be followed when two private individuals want to engage in a firearms transaction?



When a transaction takes place between private (unlicensed) persons who reside in the same State, the Gun Control Act (GCA) does not require any record keeping. A private person may sell a firearm to another private individual in his or her State of residence and, similarly, a private individual may buy a firearm from another private person who resides in the same State. It is not necessary under Federal law for a Federal firearms licensee (FFL) to assist in the sale or transfer when the buyer and seller are “same-State” residents. Of course, the transferor/seller may not knowingly transfer a firearm to someone who falls within any of the categories of prohibited persons contained in the GCA. See 18 U.S.C. §§ 922(g) and (n). However, as stated above, there are no GCA-required records to be completed by either party to the transfer.

There may be State or local laws or regulations that govern this type of transaction. Contact State Police units or the office of your State Attorney General for information on any such requirements.

Please note that if a private person wants to obtain a firearm from a private person who resides in another State, the firearm will have to be shipped to an FFL in the buyer’s State. The FFL will be responsible for record keeping. See also Question B3.
