    Good evening Ladies and Gents,

    I have a question regarding selling an unused AR15. Before I moved to Austin, TX from California, I was given a beautiful AR15. I was given the AR15 before they made some ridiculous law stating that I had to register it before a certain date. Well, I knew I was moving to Austin so I said screw it and kept it in my brother-in-law's name.

    Anyways, it's obviously here with me in Austin and I am looking to sell it, along with its attachments. My question is; can I sell it legally to someone or a gun store without it blowing back on my brother-in-law? Or does it matter since I live in the state of Texas? Let's say I sell it to someone, or I sell it to a store and a bad apple buys it from them and they use it for bad things, will myself or my brother-in-law receive any blowback? This may be the dumbest question ever asked on this forum but better safe than sorry!

    Cheers!

    In Texas, it's like every other gun. As long as that basturd wasn't entered into the NCIC or TCIC. National crime information computer, Texas crime information computer. (Theft)

    Its a chunk of metal. Like every other gun at the Pawn. Unknown amount of owners. It's nothing but a used gun.

    It was given to you.
    You sell it to a legal gun owner, no issue.
    As long as it's not stolen.
    You can't control what happens after that.

    Sounds like it has a sordid past. I’ll give you $1.

    I always liked guns with a past. Most collectable stuff has a past. It either shot someone or was at least pointed at them.

    Check out the Texas Ranger Museum in Waco. It's full of stuff with a history.

    Since you or your brother in law are not famous. It's market value.

    Tread lightly. Sounds like there may have been a California law broken because you didn't do a private party transfer and fill out a DROS through a California dealer. I'd keep the gun, don't say anything more about it and ask to have your post deleted.

    Probably too late for that one.
