    Why would you need to "sell" to your wife ?, do you need $$$ .
    This shows just how far we have fallen as to our gun rights when something like this becomes a major discussion and worry to someone. JMO

    Too many gun laws. Of course, you wouldn't want to sell to a prohibited person. Wyoming doesn't seem to have many laws regarding private sales. So, if the state doesn't require that the buyer obtain a permit to purchase a firearm, how would you know if the buyer is a prohibited person? And how long do you need to keep a record of the sale?

    Oh for Pete’s sake! Put a bow on it and tell her Happy Hanukkah.

    Jeez. You lived in CA too long.

    I just bought a gun. Cash, face to face. No paper no ID's no hassle. Like real free men.

    Completely unnecessary in the eyes of the state and gains you nothing but nice feelings. The only party who cares about the date of ownership is the insurance company. Take a digital photo.

    Unnecessary ,means a paper trail you may not wish to have. One day you own the two guns the next they are gone. When how and were is none of any ones business. Long as you follow State law in your state. I have for may years given my children firearms for birthdays , Christmas ect . The only paper work was the name tag on the box. 100% legal in Wisconsin. Why would I create a document that records the weapons serial number and a transfer that is not required by law.
    Sell to a prohibited buyer you better off with no paper work . No proof you sold it if you have a peace of pare you just admitted it. That is no protection..
    There is one case where it maybe something to consider. Say you when out a beat the xxx out of someone, maybe even had a fire arm involved. Knowing they will take yours disposing of it before hand may or may not keep it out of LE hands. If it was just in a crime and they find they will take it.

    I seem to recall that in Michigan if a hand gun is lost or stolen the owner is required by law to report it to the sheriff within five days. I could be wrong, and I don't know if this same law applies to transfers of ownership.

    If my wife wants one of my guns I just give it to her. Then I get to go buy myself another one. The only private transfers I've ever done has been with family, usually in the form of gifts. Never felt a need for paperwork.

    That form is meaningless. Just a peace of paper it will not protect you . it is either legal or not in a persons state to do so.

    Hummmm, interesting, wondering really what prompted this ??? Here, when I was married, everything is joint property, so I sure didn't have to sell a gun to her, it would have been hers anyway ... and who is to say which gun was mine or hers ..... as long as their is no disqualifier to her owning a gun.... like a felony.

    And if she has a CC license, and ATF cleared your State, it's all good ..... unless you have some State Laws preventing it .

    HERE ... ATF ok's that if you have a CC license, that proves you would pass the background check and even an FFL doesn't have to do one on you if purchasing a gun.
