    I am a widow selling husband's guns. My problem is I offered a 1921 Astra 400 for $500 to a new maintenance man at work. Now I am regretting it. He seems immature and something doesn't feel right. I am not prejudice, but he is from Mexico and my son says hes just different. His personality makes me nervous. I don't think he understands guns very well from the way he talks and says he wants to ride his horse and shoot a 30 30 like cowboy and Indians. Do I just draw up a bill of sale and take a drivers license number?
    Hard to explain my dilemma. Any advice is appreciated.

    Generally, if you feel any apprehension, most around here would not go through with the sale. If feelings get hurt, so be it.



    Others will be along shortly to explain about the worthlessness of a bill of sale.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Sorry for your loss ma'am.

    If you feel like backing out, then back out.
    He may not be able to legally own a firearm anyway.

    Don't sell it to him if you feel uneasy about it. Period.

    If you need help with values ask a trusted friend. If that doesn't exist then ask here. We are glad to help.

    I'd pass. Trust your gut.

    It's strange he'd pay that much for that gun.

    Welcome to TGT. All of the above is good advice from good people. Bill of Sale is worthless.
