    Regardless of whether you find somebody to sell Face to face being the son of a trooper you realize the sale has to either go thru paperwork you fill out at a State Police Barracks or thru an FFL.
    Sometimes you can find great deals online,BudsGuns ships to your FFL free where you need to fill out the FFL form and transfer fee.
    If your trying to circumvent the process in your State it could be that you are prohibited to possess a firearm.

    Just getting into handguns, and you want something cheap to learn on.

    Consider picking up any of the 9mm third-generation Smith & Wesson semi-auto pistols that you can find used, at auctions (ie, GunBroker or GunsAmerica) or at many pawn shops and gun shops. Unless grossly abused, they'll last practically forever and likely be dead nuts reliable. They can be a great gun to learn on. Discontinued, sadly, but they're everywhere, and many can be had quite inexpensively. There aren't really any puny, mousegun variants of these in the third-gen group of S&W pistols, but most of them are fantastic choices.

    Ditto on the others' recommendation to head to a large rental range, at which you can test out several different guns. Much of the suitability of a given gun is going to be the ergonomics and mechanicals, how it specifically fits you. Can't know that until you get one in hand, better yet while test-firing it on the range.

    No I am 100% trying to go through an FFL and everyone that I have talked to about potentially purchasing a firearm I have expressed this is the only way that I will perform a purchase is through a FFL
