That post looks so #^%*&^$ crazy, when I get to the second paragraph, that I wonder if you are being sarcastic and making fun of NickC50310 for being such an uptight newb. You obviously can't be serious about getting ID for knives and computers, etc., but the first part looked like you were.
I have done I would guess 15 or so face to face buying or selling transaction on guns over the last 20 years. Never had a bill of sale or ID go either way. Never had an issue either. I would not be offended if someone asked me too but no one every has nor have I ever asked anyone.
Closest I ever came was selling 3 WWII rifles and ammo to a guy, he gave me his business card if I ever needed a lawyer
