    If you have sold a personal gun does it still need to be sent to an FFL?

    This comes up all the time here. Yes it must go to an FFL. Shipping any firearms been private individuals is illegal - Period. No exceptions. DGG

    Yes, send to FFL

    Some states allow face to face transfers between residents of the same state.

    Very illegal to ship or take it across state lines to transfer to a non FFL or for your buyer to come to your state.

    Some buyers have a Curios and Relics license which lets them receive certain guns more than 50 years old.

    Just ask your buyer to have a copy of his local FFL's license sent to you via mail, Fax, e-mail or Pony Express.

    Then you check the numbers on the license at the BATFE ez-check web site then you send it to the FFL on the license for transfer to your buyer.

    Very easy

    FFL regulations for shipping apply if shipped across State lines. It is my understanding that a firearm may be shipped person to person as long as it stays in the same State. ie: Buyer and seller both reside in Florida. However no record of sale will be available so seller beware. State laws may vary, always check first. Marc
