    Don't worry when worry won't change anything or motivate you. So don't worry. If they act funny or ask questions that seem inappropriate, don't answer, be respectful always an no matter what and say you'd like to have a lawyer present but really, it won't come to that. so don't worry, be happy!

    i just spoke with my attorney, she tried to call but he was gone, she said she doesnt think anything will come of it, but if at any time they seem to question my actions or motives to call her. she seems to think they just want to know where i got the gun and that will be it.

    That would be my guess. They're probably trying to see if you have any information about the individual you purchased it from.

    I agree with others. Not much is going to happen. Bring whatever documents you have proving your story... a canceled check? You may lose the gun. If it was stolen property, then you never owned it :-/ . State law differs on how this is exactly handled, in particular if there is a pawn shop involved and you didnt' commit a crime. If you are not charged/convicted of actually stealing the gun, then the original owner may have to sue the current owner of the gun to get it back (if they are interested). At least this is how it roughly works in Florida.

    I NEVER sell through an FFL. I'll buy, but then it's their ass. I'll do private face to face sales, but never on paper, even though I've got nothing to hide. You guys that think a receipt is going to save your butt are crazy.

    i believe in La, but not sure, i will just lose the gun (out a couple hundred dollars in the gun and the parts i put on it) and they will return it to the original owner, now if they really wanted to be harsh, i could possibly get charged with recieving and selling stolen goods.

    i agree with AZHusker, but i will also buy from an individual, i had no reason to believe this was a stolen gun and i doubt the guy i bought it from knew, im interested to see when it was stolen. if thats even what it is. i like the idea of face to face, especially with our new Mr. Prez.

    You've already bought and sold the weapon in question. SIXTO is right, just tell the truth and I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    At least you didn't buy it and lose a stolen weapon along with the purchase money.

    I think that would be the worst that would happen. Be sure to keep us updated. Good luck!

    The real question, is the gun shop out the money.... or will you have to make up the money you traded it for to the gun shop. I'm betting , you will have to. So, you are likely to be out the money.

    As far as the rest... tell them the truth, bottom line... they want whoever is selling stolen weapons and to lock them up, and you were in direct contact with them. Help them with any info you have... while your attorney is sitting right next to you.

    Sorry, but ... I would be glad to talk to them, as long as an "my" attorney is sitting there too... and I don't care how that looks to them.

    Maybe it is Hussein sliding in at a low level, one of the ways he is gonna TRY to take our arms. You know, try one or 2 on someone else's time and see how it pans out. If it works out fairly good, they will use it at a higher number after he lives in the White House. Of course, it may not be anything at all.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    like i said earlier, i have nothing to hide, i will try to help them anyway i can. i dont want stolen guns on the street, those are the ones that get into wrong hands. just sucks im the one who will take the loss for someone elses illegal gain.

    but on the bright side, hopefully the rightful owner will get his gun back, plus a folding stock, 30rd mag, scope and mount.

    I doubt your in any trouble. If they thought you stole the gun or it was used in a crime, you wouldn't have gotten a phone call, it would have been a knock on the door and escorted to the station.
