This is just a cool little story I would like to share with you guys and gals with regard to how I became a member of the XD45 club. This will be my main carry once it is tried and trusted. I got my concealed carry license a few days ago and have wanted to trade one of my pistols (Springfield GI micro) in on one I have been eyeing. A Springfield XD45. I went to the gun shop where I bought it and asked about trade in value and the guy gave me a number that was insulting to me, so I just said thanks but no thanks and started out the door. Then this guy that was at the counter, another customer, stops me and asked what it was I was interested in selling. So I stopped and showed him and we chatted for a minute about it and he showed a little interest in it and asked me to meet him outside after he made his purchase and I agreed. He bought a grip or something for his wife and then he came out. While I was waiting I told my wife, heck lets just go and she encouraged me to wait for the guy just to see what he wanted. It turns out that this guy, I still don't know his name or anything, has been looking for the pistol I had as his friend had got one and he really liked it. We talked for a few more minutes about it and then he asked what I wanted for it and I told him to make and offer and we could go from there. He told me he would give me 400 bucks for it (I only paid 425 2 years ago, though it is like new I only shot about 5 or 6 rounds out of it) and I said that would be fine. He peeled off 400 dollars and we made the deal right in front of this place. I went back in and got the pistol I have been wanting. I never am in the right place at the right time but the planets must be aligned for me today!!! What a freakin story...I am so stoked I can't believe it.

You sold a gun to a guy in a parking lot and didn't even get his name?

It depends on the state (and I have no knowledge of Georgia law) but here in Virginia that would have been legal. So long as he didn't have knowledge the man was going to commit a felony with the pistol, its legal. A bill of sale can be attained for future documentation, but its not necessary.

There was no law broken. It was a legal face to face sale. There is no requirement to do FFL between two private parties within the same state.
Welcome to the XD community!! I have an XD45 also and I love it. I want more XD's in the future. Probably an XD40 is next.

Perfectly legal in Idaho - private sale between private citizens, as long as you don't already know he's going to do something felonious with it.
Welcome to the club - I'm packing an XD40 sc as I type!
Legal in KY. Welcome to XD club and congrats on the XD45, I love my XD9, sure you will love the XD45.
To those of you who made comments about this being illegal. If you know that for a fact, it would probably have been better to handle that by PM'ing a moderator and/or PM'ing the original poster.
If you don't know for a fact that his actions were illegal based on the laws of HIS state...you're out of line.
Let's get back on topic...
Froggy, congrats on the good deal, I'm not an XD fan but I hope it works for you.

If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.
Completely legal in GA.
Glad you got what you wanted.

Thanks for replying everyone. I guess I shouldn't assume everyone in our great nation has the same rights as we enjoy here in Georgia. Next time I will be sure to spell that out, sorry I am new here. I now know there are at least several states I could never reside in. thanks again. Off to the range to see if I will be as satisfied with this deal as I think I will be!
Congratulations on your XD. That's a great pistol!

Congrats on the XD45, that's one of the pistols I want as my EDC! Did you get the Service or Compact model? You'll have to let us know how it shoots when you get a chance.
