Private gun sale question.
Don't know if I am in the right area for this subject.
I am about to sell one of my pistols face to face. What would be the proper way to make the transaction? first time.

I have put this in General guns ......... if AZ permits FTF transactions of handguns then IMO you need to know your potential buyer is ''clean'' - and if so to your satisfaction then a bill of sale with all recording of SN , model price, date, personal info of both parties etc. My approach anyways.
Safest tho - despite pandering to what we feel should not have to occur - is thru an FFL - then hard to see any come back.

Does PA allow face to face pistol sales? Where would we look something like this up?

You might want to do a google on your states law and go from there..would be a good idea that once you find your state laws on gun possession in your state, save it in your fav's...it will be some research on your part tho, it took me a couple of days before I found what I needed for AR..below is what we have for AR.
5-73-132-Sale, rental, or transfer of firearm to person prohibited from possessing firearms.
(a) A person shall not sell, rent, or transfer a firearm to any person who he or she knows is prohibited by state or federal law from possessing the firearm.
(b) (1) Violation of this section is a Class A misdemeanor, unless the firearm is:
(A) A handgun;
(B) A sawed-off or short-barrelled shotgun, as defined in § 5-1-102;
(C) A sawed-off or short-barrelled rifle, as defined in § 5-1-102;
(D) A firearm that has been specially made or specially adapted for silent discharge;
(E) A machine gun;
(F) An explosive or incendiary device, as defined in § 5-71-301;
(G) A defaced firearm, as defined in § 5-73-107; or
(H) Other implement for the infliction of serious physical injury or death that serves no common lawful purpose.
(2) If the firearm is listed in subdivision (b)(1) of this section, a violation of this section is a Class B felony
in (a) above the key word there is "KNOWS"...so for us here in AR, we can sell FTF legally as far as the state is concerned..but as was mentioned, if you want to be safe abt it, do it thru a dealer and keep the feds off your tail.

Check on Gary's site, handgunlaw.us. He's got a lot of the laws laid out by state, might have the selling rules laid out as well.

One requirement regardless of state law is that the person you sell to must be a resident of your state. In Alabama the first thing you do is look at their driver's license.

No, they do not. You must go to a FFL.

I'd give the local Sheriff's Office a call to start with. I'd still use an FFL to document the sale.

If there are any doubts, state that you'd be happy to do the xfer through an FFL.

In MN I would require a copy of their valid CC permit or we have permit to purchase cards issued by the police. Both rquire a background check. I would also require a copy of a valid driver's license. Make out a bill of sale and have some third party witness it. This would prove you to the best of your ability checked to verify a crime free background.
