    Yes I know it has been explained a thousand times but I cannot seem to find any recent postings. I am seriously looking into the purchase of a gun from out of state and need to know what I should request from the seller to make sure it is on the up and up?Any help would be helpful!!
    Thanks

    Best way to make sure you are not sending money to a fraud is to ask the seller to ship from an FFL holder. Seller gives the item to the FFL and when the FFL receives your money he ships it to your FFL. The FFL on the other side will not want to risk his FFL by steraling your money.

    I am told that local police offices can run a check for a stolen serial number. If you get the serial number of the gun you are buying perhaps your local police could run a check for you?
