I am like you Lars, don't want the gun in my name. I have sold some at gun shows to people that looked 'stable'. It is just the risk you take.

Hi Lars. I've sold a few guns locally, from an add I put in the paper. Basically what I have done is draft a sales receipt with buyers name, address, drivers license, and their signature. As well as my signature.  Not sure if it would stand up in court but figure it's pretty good proof if the gun shows up in a crime some time down the road of when and who I sold it too.

ps - receipt is basically "gun sold as is, no warranty" with make, model, cal / ga, any other info, and serial number.

Lars, there is something now called Armslist.com.  Its basically a Craigslist for firearms/ammo/etc.  I've sold a couple guns off of it, and its been easy (just like Craigslist).  There are a couple online templates for Bill of Sales for firearms, basically just an "as is, no liability" thing.  I bring two copies, i can forward you the BOS that I use if you'd like.  

There is a subsection for every state.  http://www.armslist.com/classifieds/maine

Well it is a federal offense to sell a firearm to someone who can not legally posses it.  In the world we live in today, unless you truley know the person you are selling to, I would insist on a transfer with a FFL.  If the buyer has an issue with that,  probably not worth the risk.  (side note, the feds watch the firearm ads in Uncle Henry's fairly close to determine who is "running" an unlicensed business.  A few years ago they pinched a guy selling a handgun to a non-resident out of Uncle Henry's.  Turned out the buyer was a federal agent).

Lars,  I would just list them on gun broker and ship to the buyers FFL, or haul them all down to Kittery.

Thats crossed my mind Tony and if I lived closer I might have just traded them all in for that once in a lifetime gun.

While it is true that a state resident can sell a handgun to another state resident in a private sale in state with no ffl transfer involved, you still cannot legally sell to a convicted felon.  So unless you really know.....
