Pretty much if both parties would be legally able to walk into a FFL and purchase a handgun, there aren't any restrictions on trading.
But how would I know if my co worker was cool? Should I ask to go to the local PD for a background check?
h2o-5o, bamabud, Thanks for the info. I will print that out. Im just worried about "Hot" guns. Im not saying that he is a crook or thief or the gun is even "Hot". Im just saying. I want to protect my azz from such.If you have no knowledge or reason to believe that someone is prohibited from possessing it, it is my understanding that is all that is required.
If it's causing you so much hesitation and headaches, just go to your local FFL and have him accept both firearms and transfer them to each party. CYA, bases covered, etc.
I also tell the seller that I will take the firearm to the PD, AFTER I buy it, for them to run the serial number. Any hesitation, I walk, too. Since I have their ID and signature, checking with the PD really puts me at ease.h2o-5o, bamabud, Thanks for the info. I will print that out. Im just worried about "Hot" guns.

Bamabud, That is exactly what happened. I ask if he had any problem riding over to the local PD and have his handgun ran. With a loud tone and suprise. He was like "what for!?" "You dont trust me!?" That set off a Red light for me and I said to him that he should do the same. He was like "I trust you man!" "You should trust me!" literally yelling the entire time. I calmly said "No Deal". Thanks everybody for all the info. mossyI also tell the seller that I will take the firearm to the PD, AFTER I buy it, for them to run the serial number. Any hesitation, I walk, too.
Damn! Too late... I just went and put a New Ruger on Layaway @ Pawn City.mossy, im wanting to trade for a 3" sp101 .357.
have a few S&W J frames to pick from...can add cash if needed.
let me know...
P.S. and we can go to what ever PD you want to get the guns run...
Did you have the chance to handle the Ruger LCR? Amazingly lightweight.i just bought their 3" sp101 a few days ago....
now im trying to sell my 3" model 36.
No not yet. I found it cheaper somewhere else and its on layaway. Beats the heck out of the old Rossi or Taurus.Mossy, have you gotten the LCR yet? i have to get a range report....
Shoots Great! A little snappy for a .38Spl but I like it. Light, accurate, and Very concealable. I dont buy expensive holsters So I slipped her in and old uncle mikes IWB and she feels fine. Hardly knows that the gun is even there. I like it. $$$ well spent. Now if I could just find some good ammo.yeah, im not crazy about built in locks either....thank God somebody are Ruger was smart enough to NOT put them on the sp101...yet...wonder why they did it with the LCR?
