I’m no expert either, state to state transfer requires an FFL (on both ends I think) some fees requires. Every state is slightly different, but Michigan requires a purchase permit, or an CPL to purchase pistols in-state via private transfer. (not for much longer, we are eliminating our pistol registry statewide)
Michael - Here is the place to sell it. http://www.gunbroker.com/ Ship via common carrier, not USPS, to the buyer’s FFL. FFL typically collects a small transfer fee to do the paperwork and instant background check ( I pay about $20).
I don’t know the rules in FL, but in TX individuals can do face to face sales transactions
If you decide to break rule #1, why would you sell a brand new gun?
It’s perfectly legal to sell it out of state so long as you ship to the buyer’s 01FFL. You can’t ship a pistol USPS unless you’re returning it to the manufacturer for repair, so you’ll have to find a carrier who will ship it. I think FedEX will, but you have to send it priority overnight air or whatever their most expensive package is. Some 01FFL’s don’t want to receive a firearm of any kind from an individual. Not because it’s illegal, just because they’re jerks.
01FFL’s can mail pistols to each other via USPS, so sometimes to avoid the cost of shipping FedEx and the hassle with the other dealer, it’s cheaper and easier to transfer the pistol to your 01FFL and just pay him some for the transfer.
Surely there’s a local website around you that lists firearms? We have Midwest Gun Trader http://midwestguntrader.com/ around here. That way you get a local buyer and don’t have to deal with all the paperwork.
