ok, here we go. I'm sure many of you heard that I just moved here from Oregon. Oregon is considered a cash and carry state, so basically I could grab any one of my firearms and run to the next door neighbor, sell it for a quick buck, and not have to worry about any paperwork. So long as it's a private party sale. So my question is this: How does a guy sell a firearm here in MN? Same way, or is it a must to use an FFL? I'm trying to offload my MAK, but don't want to do it in an illegal fashion.

i don't know about handguns, but I think as far as long arms go..as long as they wouldn't require a permit to purchase to buy, I think p2P sales are good to go...

Of course, it's always a good thing to check and see if they have a permit to purchase and/or a carry permit...

As you said, its always good to be careful. Read through the laws and make sure you understand them to a point with which you are totally comfortable--if you still don't, ask a lawyer to further clarify. In reality, we are mostly guys with opinions here and you know what that is worth.....
Having said that, IMHO, in the "execptions" section of the above posted laws are the rules that make it possible for face to face transactions between two private citizens without FFLs. HOWEVER there are still rules, at least to my understanding, that need to be followed. Strawman purchases are illegal, even if some time elapses between the inital purchase and a private sale. If you are buying a weapon for someone else it is illegal and if you are buying the weapon with the sole intention of reselling it, that is also illegal. It is illegal to knowingly sell a firearm to a minor or to a convicted felon. And, it is my understanding, that the ATF will view the frequent buying and selling of firearms at a profit as an activity needing an ffl--even if you might consider those sales "private face to face" transactions.

Good luck in your sale....

I generally only do a private sale to someone whom I know personally or have seen a copy of their CCW, Purchase permit and DL.
