You should see their ID at a minimum. That's to ensure they are a state citizen. Other than that, you don't need to make any records or take any info.Hi I am going to sell a rifle FTF should I make a bill of sale for item and get sellers info? Or is there no need to do all of this?
But it's legally required to not knowingly sell to someone prohibited from buying a firearm. If it's a stranger, you can ask and take their word, or actually make an effort, however little it is....but again, this is not legally required.
Unfortunately, no, not strangers.Is a (wo)man's word not worth anything any more?
Self Protection from WHAT?FTF I write a bill of sale with ser. # and get their driver's license number. If they don't agree, no sale. Recently I have sold to FFLs at gun shows. Same deal. No paperwork, no sale. It's minimal self protection but not technically required by state or federal law.
More like, it's against the law to sell to someone that is out of state. There's nothing wrong with checking an ID. It's no different than a bar checking my ID because I look young. There's nothing wrong with that, they have everything to risk if they simply take my word for it.Well, I keep playing devil's advocate because I see a disturbing (to me) trend in some of you to "let the government handle it" instead of taking a persons word.
