Continuing with our series on buying and selling firearms, in this article we are going to talk about private sales. In ourlast post, we explained FFLs and background checks, so we already covered how buying firearms from a gun shop works, but what about private sales?
Say you have an old gun you want to sell, or maybe you know someone who’s willing to sell you a firearm that you’ve wanted for ages—like perhaps the coveted Colt Anaconda or Marlin 336. How would you go about completing the transaction? Is there some sort of license you need to get, or somebody you need to clear with before exchanging firearms and money?
A Michigan man with a concealed pistol license says he was fired from his job as a valet supervisor after he pulled out a gun to defend a woman who was being stabbed outside the entrance of a technical center in Warren. Didarul Sarder, an employee of SP+ Valet, told local reporters that he was let go from the valet service for a violation of his contract, which prohibited employees from carrying firearms. Despite that, Sarder says he would have done it again in a heartbeat.
“The lady kept saying ‘I’m dying, someone help’ and it was just natural reaction,” Sarder told Fox News Detroit.

So, I have a 21SF at home that I am perfectly content with being my bedside buddy. Right now, the only other pistol I have is my little LCP. I carry that thing everywhere. However, I am looking to get a bigger gun for when I go to areas that could present more a problem - a shopping mall, movie theater, etc. I am torn 50/50 between the 19 and the 26 (either Gens 3 or 4, not picky there).
My issue with the 26 is also what makes it more concealable than the 19: the grip length. Not a fan of having my pinky hanging off...and then when you add any sort of pinky extension, isn't it just as long as the 19's grip?
My friend and I have been friends for over a decade. Over the past few weeks, he'd been telling me that he wants to get a pistol for his concealed handgun license (which is now called a License to Carry in Texas). We talked a lot about his motivations, how he wants to carry, in what situations, etc, and I showed him my pistols. After discussing them at length, including their strengths and weaknesses, he decided on the Glock 19 Gen 4. He said it felt best in his hand and had all the features he was looking for.
Fast forward to today: he stopped by my house this morning at 8:30 a.m. and we continued on to pick up two of my best friends, both also former Marines like myself, and the four of us went to the gun show. This was to be my friend's first gun show. He was not sure what to expect after hearing so much negativity in the media regarding the gun show culture. We reassured him that it's not anything like what the media portrays, and...
