How to sell a gun FTF or when FFL are involved?

Just like the title states, I am really curious in what's involved either way and what is most important, does selling the gun through a FFL clear your name from the gun. I don't want it to come back and haunt me if I do sell it. Thanks. And I know I don't have a enough post to sell it on the forum so please don't bring that up. My intentions are not to sell it on here. Thanks.

Is this FTF in the same state or different state? If a different state or if the person lives in a different state, you have to go through a FFL. If in the same state, it varies, and I would recommend you contact your local law enforcement. Some states do not require a FFL for a FTF sale, but I would recommend it just to be on the safe side. Worth any extra fees to ensure that you're not selling to someone who can't own. I found this link below with some information, but, as always, take advice from the Internet with a grain of salt.

I just sold a pistol to my boss and didn't need to go through a FFL. He and I both have a CPL and apparently that makes it so we can do the paperwork just between each other and he goes and turns in the two pieces of paper to the cops and we're done. I did originally meet him at the range I go to because I thought we needed them to do the transfer because of the FFL, but they just gave me a copy of the paperwork and told me I didn't need it because we both had a CPL. I live in MI, so still check with the local LEO and be sure.

In Florida if you are selling to another person in person all you need is bill of sale and photocopy of each persons DL.

Bill of sale is not required at all. It's a good idea, but not required.
Just gotta have no reason to believe the person was ineligible to own a firearm.

I see, I thought that it was, I guess it a good way to CYA.

Check your state laws.

Personally, when I sell a handgun privately, I have a bill of sale, and unless I know the person I am selling it to well, I want to see their DL and either their Minnesota Permit to Purchase or Permit to Carry.

There are 50 states (some think 57, but my 3rd grade teacher was adamant it was 50) and each state has a little twist to the laws. Always check your state's laws! You aren't the federal government so you can't flout the laws, beotch slap Blind Justice and get away with it like you were a BATFe agent!

I'm stationed in California and recently bought a pistol from a private party. After checking the laws here, both parties have to go to an ffl with the firearm and do the standard background checks and pay a $35 transfer fee. Needless to say I can't wait to pcs. Ha

Sellin in FL

In FL if you both are residents then you can sell person2person and no need for paperwork. If you feel or know that that person should not own a gun (priors, mentally inept, or under the influence of drugs including marijuana) then you've committed a big F. That person lives in another state then your neighborhood FFL (federal firearms licensee) must ship the gun to his states FFL for NICS background check. Good luck
