    How do I legally sell a gun to a buddy?

    My buddy wants to buy my 1911, is there a way that I am supposed to transfer the gun to him?

    It depends on your state, but generally speaking you just complete the transaction. No paperwork involved.

    At least in FL that's how it is. Private sales don't require a transfer through an FFL. However, you are held responsible if that person commits a crime using the gun you sold to him/her.

    Go to a local gun shop or an FFL for the transfer. It'll cost between $18 and $30.

    I'm not familiar with the laws in your state but I'd want to go thru an FFL and pay the fee. That way it is on record that you have relinquished any interest in the gun.

    +1+1, or at the very least write and notarize duplicate bill of sales.
