What is the law

When you sell a hand gun to an individual?   I am planning to sell my Ruger and thinking about advertising it here.  I’m not sure what I need to do.

Just make sure the person you are selling to is able to own a gun, don't sell to minor or convicted felon.  Its a good idea to print off a bill of sale and have them sign it so you can prove the sale was made and you no longer own the gun.

Haven't really kept up on all the gun laws, is a minor not allowed to own a powder burner anymore?  I owned 4  before I ever had a driver's license, and my oldest daughter had 2 before she graduated high school.

If you sell a firearm and write up a bill of sale, how long should you keep your copy? For the rest of your life?

Are you now required to do a background check on someone before selling them a firearm?  Make sure they aren't on anti-depressants, have any psychologist appointments, or have never bounced a check?

This is why I like airguns so much, same amount of enjoyment (more actually) without all the hoops and hassles.

Good idea there.

I want something lighter weight and smaller caliber and I am supposed to get a discount on a glock.  I just want to sell it the correct way.  Maybe I had better just call the Greene County Sherrif’s Office and ask them.
