guys, i have a pistol for sale, and a co-worker wants it. no biggie, i figured i'd just sell him the pistol and all would be good. i never realized [until the other day] though, that my co-worker lives just over the border in NH.

i've heard a lot of different laws on different states and how they handle firearms transactions, so i'm getting confused now. would this be a legit private sale? i seem to remember that doing a private sale on long guns is ok in different states, but that pistols are a no-no. i might just be confusing local shit though being that i lived just over the border from MA in CT for quite some time.

if anyone can point me in the right direction as to state or federal law, i'd greatly appreciate it.

Transfers of handguns across state lines require at least an FFL in the buyers state.

Firearms sales of any type (rifle, handgun, shotgun) between residents of different states are a violation of Federal law unless the sale is made though a dealer in the purchaser's home state. In order to be legal, you would have to transfer the firearm through a NH FFL.

Pretty much, just keep an FFL in the loop and you'll be 100% compliant with the ATF. If it was in Maine, you could do a private sale no problem, knowing that you're accountable for the buyer's track record.

Don't feel bad- unless it's pics of alizee or Tookie's victims, sometimes it's tough to get a response here.

Re out of state pistol transfers : do it FFL in your state to FFL in his state. That's Federal law. Go to batfe.gov webpage to get further info.

Federal law does not require an FFL on the seller's end, only on the buyer's.
