Have them come to you rather than you come to them to conduct the deal. They have to worry about registering it before they bring it in to the city.

Still would avoid selling a "assault rifle" inside the city though. I would follow the rules aimsurplus follows- if they won't ship to Chicago, I wouldn't sell to Chicago either.

I sold to a Chicago cop. He came out to me and I had him sign a sales receipt that stated he understood his local laws, etc.

They can own whatever they want.

The only time its illegal is if THEY bring it to Chicago. Don't sell it to them while you're both in Chicago and you're good to go.

He just has to register the weapon with the city of Moscow, I mean Chicago. If you gets caught with it, him being law enforcment he is exempt from state charges. the most he would face is a class C (local) Misdemeanor and have to go to court and try and get the gun back from the city. Thats it.

You as a seller, as long as your sale was in complete compliance with the laws you're good to go.

So long as the firearm is legal in the state of Illinois, and so long as all applicable waiting period and FOID checking is done, it is legal for a Chicago resident to purchase. If the firearm cannot be legally possessed in the city of Chicago, the transfer of the firearm must take place in a location where it is legal. It is up to the buyer to ensure that he is following all the applicable laws after the transaction is completed.

Don't forget the call to the state police for the background check.

I have sold a few over the years FTF and never heard of that

Non-FFL holders cannot enroll in FTIPs to perform background checks. All he needs is a copy of the guys FOID card and to conduct the transfer at a location where it is legal.

How do you do the 72hr wait for a hand gun on a FTF?

Agree to a price. Wait 72 hrs. Exchange. Make note of date of agreement on documentation exchanged as required.

The clock starts ticking from the time the transaction is "initiated". That means a) it can all be done in one trip and b) the second you guys agree on a price the clock is already ticking.
