    Why not cosign it to a gun shop? Make sure to get and understand all paperwork. They have the ability to screen customers.

    You can only send your gun to an FFL, who is required to perform the various checks of the buyer required by law in the state where the transfer takes place. You are legally allowed to send a firearm to an FFL. The key is to not ship until you have a ink-signed copy of the receiving FFL in your hands (although the BATFE allows faxed copies these days).

    If it makes you feel more secure, you can elect to send the gun from an FFL at your end. Out here in AZ, few dealers will accept handgun transfers except from another FFL.

    I have 5 or 6 guns for sale right now and this past three months have sold three other ones.... and over the past few years it's been a good number.

    I almost always send it through my FFL to theirs. Once I sent it directly to their FFL and I've done two FTF. In Texas, there's nothing really required for face to face, but I still have them sign a receipt stating they can legally own a handgun. Just in case....it keeps me clear on my end. Again, that's in Texas.

    I can even send a handgun to another individual through UPS with no FFL involved, though they won't at my UPS hub, which is fine with me.

    That, my friend, is an invitation for a felony charge in a large number of states. I trust this comment was offered in jest!

    That would be Federal Law. When you sell a gun to a person out of state, it must be transfered to an FFL.

    Depending on what State you live in, guns may sold, loaned, traded or gifted to another person who can legally posses a firearm to another person within your state. Several states allow intrastate transfer without an FFL. Some extend this only to rifles and shotguns, others allow all types of guns to be sold or traded intrastate.

    I just sold my gun locally without any problem. It's one simple piece of paper, or an even smaller one if they have their CPL. Local is much easier than sending it through an FFL.

    Post #4 refers to face to face sales. Nothing was said about transfer across state lines. It was post #4 that led to comment I quoted.

    You asked what states.
    I replied to you that several states do not allow intrastate transfer of guns. Other states have provision that limit what type of gun can be transfered intrastate without an FFL. If you never leave your state boarders you may buy and sell guns in YOUR state. If you buy a gun from out of state you will need to go through an FFL. I'm not going to go through all 57 states and protectorates but you can obtain this information for yourself. ATF Publication 5300.5.

    I love selling on Guinbroker. or Auction Arms. The customers pays you 1st, you ship to a FFL of his choice. Then it's up to the Dealer to say if he is legal to get it or not, not me. I just shipped it to a legal dealer.

    Can you provide your source material? Most of my guns have been purchased FTF. Either individually or at gun shows. To the best of my knowledge the only restriction is that we endeavor to not sell guns to known felons.
