    I'm looking to sell a pistol privately (FTF) in order to get the most out of it. What should I do to protect myself in the way of a document or bill of sale or what? Where should the transaction take place? I live in Texas (Greater Houston)

    Try this:

    BILL OF SALE- FIREARM


    I, (replace with seller name) sell to (replace with buyer name) the following firearm.

    Manufacturer:

    Model:

    Serial Number:

    Caliber:

    Description:

    This firearm is legally owned by the seller until this bill of sale is signed and witnessed. There are no guarantees or warranties on this firearm other than the standard factory warranty that may or may not be in effect.

    The buyer listed below has identified himself to me or is known to me personally. The buyer, by act of signing this bill of sale, has stated that he/she is legally allowed to own a firearm and assumes all responsibilities respecting proper ownership.

    Seller: (replace with seller name)

    Seller Signature________________________

    Identification of seller: (driver's license #/CHL #)

    Buyer: (replace with buyers name)

    Buyer Signature________________________

    Identification of buyer: (driver's license #/CHL #)

    Witness: (replace with witness name)

    Witness Signature_______________________

    Date of sale:

    I would advise getting a CHL and DL to insure that the buyer is not a prohibited person as a CYA. Under the GCA '68 no records are required for instate (FTF) sales but the seller CANNOT transfer to a prohibited person (to the best of their knowledge). This is a CYA I use even though it is not legally required.
