    I am looking at buying a shotgun through a private party on trapshooters.com I have a dealer with an FFL. What paperwork needs to happen with this sort of transaction. I live in California and the sell lives in Texas. Any help would be great.

    Why not ask your questions to dealer you're working with? He IS an essential part of your transaction.?

    The receiving dealer is responsible for everything. He may want the seller to go threw a dealer on his end too, it's the receiving dealers call whether he receives a firearm from an out of state person or not, also to know the laws and whether he has to collect sales tax and in the case of CA whether the gun is legal there or not. Of course no one wants to pay him anything.
