Could someone please outline the rules about transferring firearms between licensed sellers and individuals, as well as between just indivuals. For example, when does a gun need to be sent to a FFL holder to be sold? Is this always the case for licensed sellers, or can a licensed seller ever sell a gun 'privately' without a background check? Also, what if there is a gun for sale in state X, but I live in state Y. Even if The seller is a private owner, he must send it to a FLL holder in state Y, because it cannot cross the state lines privately (tell me if this is wrong). But what if I send my buddy who lives in state X, to buy it, then he drives it down to state Y to give it to me? Is this legal, and can my buddy do this without a background on himself or myself? If this has been discussed already, I'm sorry, I didn't see it. I think this kind of info would be welcomed by most 'novice' gun traders / buyers / sellers.

State laws may vary. FFL's can not sell to individuals without a 4473. Fire arms shipped between states for sale must be through FFL's. In Ohio individual sales between private citizens are not regulated except as covered by age restrictions and other prohibitions as described on the 4473, convicted felons, dishonorabley discharged veterans, domestic violence convictions, etc. Ohio also prohibits adjudicated drug addicts, alcoholics and mental patients. It is not legal in many states to purchase a firearm unless you are a resident of that state.

www.atf.treas.gov do a search for transfers. Their whole list of regs is there. Very useful once you find it.
