in-state, you don't have to do anything; just transfer face-to-face. Some state laws differ, but there's no federal law stopping you from doing face-to-face transfers.

Out of state you need to have them send you an ink signed copy of their dealers liscence. You have to ship to a dealer out of state. In state face to face is fine. Same goes for buying but you send the copy.

Probably not going to happen if you're selling through this site or other gun sites. Most guys know wether or not they're going to pass a background check. I've done maybe 200 deals over the net and never had a single problem. On the off chance something does happen, it's not really your problem that I can see. What happens on his end is on him.

The FFL holder you are required to send it to takes care of the transaction just like any other. They run the NICS check, the holding period, just as with any new weapon. Your part is over the moment your securely ship the item to the FFL for a legal transfer. You should be paid before you do this, or at the very least paid as soon as the item is confirmed received by the FFL. What happens after that, if the Buyer fails a NICS check, is the buyer's problem in all regards - you've fulfilled your legal and seller obligations.
