    Sale of private gun at gun show

    I know I can buy a handgun only in my state of residence but can I sell my personal handgun to a vendor at a gun show out of state? Thanks

    Depends on your state laws. Some states require background checks some don’t. Some you can only sell to other residents some you can sell face to face to anyone you don’t suspect is prohibited from owning or who intends to commit a crime.

    IIRC anytime a handgun crosses a state line for sales, it has to go through a dealer and be recorded. Long guns have a little more flexibility allowed by states laws that allow sales to “contiguous” states.

    Either way, it would be safer to have the transfer go through a dealer. There are too many criminals out there whose sole purpose is to buy off the books guns and sell them to criminals to be used in crimes. I don’t want the PD or feds knocking on my door asking about gun that I sold in a private sale years ago that was recently used in a violent crime.

    I think you are wrong. Some states, not TN or Florida to name 2.

    I bought a pistol once private sale on line. I didn't know the law about driving into MO to buy it. He said he could bring it to TN next business trip whenever that was. Instead I had him ship it to my FFL. He actually shipped it before I sent the money!! I was a complete stranger...............

    To read into the OP I think he was talking about selling it to a "vendor" so he might be talking about selling it to an actual FFL.
