    123
    I am considering buying a pistol from a private citizen. Do I need to go through a dealer? Background check?...

    If the seller and you are living in the same state the answer is no........

    Um, I believe that this depends upon which state.

    Reason I answered no was the original posted this in the Oregon thread.......

    Depends on your state law.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess he's in Oregon...

    Good point that.
    I'll leave quietly now.

    Don't mind me...

    We love you Steve. Found a web site with quotes and explanations of Oregon law. Pretty wide open. If I was selling, I would do the background check or ask to see a CHL. But I am buying and I know I am not an axe murderer.

    Do you know the gun isn't stolen? I'd make the deal contingent on a clean s/n check via the sheriff's hot sheet.
