I tried looking in the forum and did not find the specific answer i want so here it is.
A friend of a friend is selling a Beretta m9 for an amount I would consider to be way less than its value. I do not know the guy so I don't want to make the wrong judgment, but my concern is if the gun is stolen and/ or has been used in a crime.... more so the latter. If i do and FFL transfer does that wash my hands of anything that may or may not be in this firearms past? or should I walk away from a sweet deal? Again I do not know for sure that this is a "hot" gun. The only thing that make me think that it could be is the price. What would you do?
