    I have recently encountered several handguns that I’ve considered purchasing from other forum members. Unfortunately these members require the transaction to be completed at their, or nearby FFL. Due to this, I have not contacted them nor made an offer on their firearm.
    I have been fortunate to have bought and sold a substantial number of firearms on this forum, and met some really nIce folks in the process. I’ll examine their CHP, drivers license, and do the deal. Personally, I’m not in favor of generating a FFL form 4473 for a lawful person to person deal.
    Wondering how others may feel about this?

    Joey. I like to do a BOS because you never know what the person you are buying from has done with the gun. It could have been stolen or used in a crime. This only applies to strangers or people you have never met or know nothing about

    With the political BS going on in this nation I do not choose to purchase firearms from people who ask for more than the "LAW" demands, no matter how much I have wanted and looked for the item being sold. If one wishes to protect themselves from from visits or threats from the govt., so be it do what you choose to do BUT it will be done without my assistance no the assistance of others that value their privacy. The less the govt. can become aware of those owning good self protection the better.

    Stick to the law and ask if it seems that the person buying the gun is buying it for themselves. If something seems off listen to your gut.

    The minute you go "above and beyond" lawful requirements you know what and where to go with your gun. WHY do people want to do this crap?? If it WAS made law they would bitch and moan about Gov't interference...

    Folks are welcome to do as they please and perhaps, if nothing goes wrong, then they'll never have a problem. Personally, if I don't know you (as in years knowing you), I will require a bill of sale. It isn't a lawful requirement, but it's just plain commonsense. First, if I buy a gun from an FFL (Academy, Joe's Gun Nut Hut, etc) and then later after I decide I don't want it & sell it, the bill of sale provides a record for whom I sold it to. Now I can hear the typing fingers getting itchy lol. So, consider this, when the gun I bought from where-ever-ffl ends up at a crime scene, and the police do an ATF trace on it (yes, they do that....i used to), the police will knock on my door and ask about my gun at their crime scene. And consider this, would there be one of my fingerprints or a partial print on the gun? Hopefully not, but it's conceivable. So back to my bill of sale.... When the police arrive about my old gun, I produce my bill of sale. After their due diligence, I no longer have an issue.

    Second, to the point of someone else's earlier post, I wouldn't necessarily know the status of the gun I'm buying. Perhaps there aren't any issues that caused my spidey-senses to tingle. With a bill of sale I have a direction to point in the event the gun turns out to be stolen.

    I don't expect everyone to agree with me. And, frankly I don't care. But if this post saves some poor fella from unnecessary trouble, then great. Btw, I'm not hot on govt interference in good people's lives either. That's kinda why I made this comment. But to the original point, FTF (w/BOS) for sure.

    Have a nice day :)

    If approached about my knowledge of firearm I once owned I will not provide a BOS or any information that may link me to a criminal charge. Shut up and lawyer up!

    Are you a felon? proof of living in same state pistol permit or chl (concealed handgun license) is all that the law rewires of seller to ask or know of buyer. YET all three requirements are unconstitutional hoops to jump through to be selling any legally owned private property to another. SEE 2nd and shall not be infringed among other rights that the N. C. state laws violate to allow one to sell a pistol to another without fear of government threats to punish. Some fear the govt., some the govt. fears!!!!
