And don't forget the fee the FFL is going to charge you to do the paperwork......that's free when you buy one from a LGS. And is the seller going to provide you proof that he legally bought the gun, and that it hasn't been used in a crime already? Maybe the local PD is looking for that gun because it was used in a crime.....

I run every firearm I buy from individuals on this website; it's not gospel but it's caused a sketchy seller to withdraw the sale on more than one occasion:

No savings is worth compromising your principles to comply with someone who would ask you to. When I see BOS and other made up crap I move on and hope they never sell it, ever. I also make note, should I ever have an item to sell they are on my personal "prohibited person" list. Yeah I can be an ass.

Edit for clarity: their gun their rules of course however actions may have consequences or like my Walmart boycott, no one notices.

If there is a really rare piece up for sale that I have been looking to forever I might do the FFL thing, etc. But not for a Ruger LCP II. I personally do a BOS on anything I buy ( I really never sell ) but it is not required by law in Texas. It's just my choice to do. If seller says no than we don't waste time. Personally, I have never had a seller refuse to do a BOS and I have never understood the reluctance of some to use a BOS. Most of the pre paid legal plans suggest you use one if you ever need to prove that the person was legally able to buy/sell a gun in Texas. That of course is a whole other argument. Now if the person was selling a nice Colt Python at a reasonable price I might go the FFL route.
