    I guess the question has been answered.

    Like stated, if you want a BOS then state that in your ad. This will hurt sales with many members though as it isn't required and could cause problems down the road.

    But to each their own.

    Bill Of Sale is definitely NOT recommended. In fact it is recommended you do NOT do a Bill of Sale.

    I'll never figure out why folks think a Bill of Sale has any legal standing. I can make Bills of Sale on my computer printer, put anything I want to say on it, sign any name on it, etc., etc. A third party witnessing the sale might be a good idea, but it's still almost "hearsay". If one really wants to have everything on record, etc., they should make the sale in front of a Notary.

    If you want a paper trail, have an FFL facilitate the xfer. It will be a good primer on how things will be when Universal Background Checks are law. :-)

    There ya' go. If I'm not mistaken, all one has to do is to have no reason to believe the buyer (or seller) is not a Texas resident or a convicted felon, etc. It's not required to know what he is or isn't. If you know someone is a felon or not a Texas resident, and you sell them a firearm, then you could be in real trouble.

    I sold/traded a pistol to a gun shop and they did a bill of sale. Why do they? With the replies I see, I understand why an individual should not do one.

    Probably for their business records. Did you ask them?

    Makes sense. May be making a transaction with an individual tomorrow, so this information is timely.

    This topic has been hashed over and over for years on here. Some folks just don't understand that a Bill of Sale (although it sounds nice) has no validity unless (maybe) it was done in front of a notary. It's just a piece of feel good paper.
