If I wanted to sell a gun online, what responsibilities do I have legally in order to do so?

The ATF FAQ I found here: http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/unlicensed-persons.html seems like I just need to call and confirm that the FFL actually exists. Do I need a copy of the FFL's license, or is calling enough? Do I need to keep that copy on file?

It's been hard to find concrete instructions online and I was hoping some of you guys would have some insight. I'm in Florida, if that effects anything.

If the gun is going out of state:

All you need is the Address and FFL # of the place you are sending it to. Its up to the buyer to provide that to you, and make sure they will accept shipments from some random guy. A long gun can be shipped for $25, a handgun will be more and require you to jump through some special hoops depending on UPS or FEDEx

In state:

You *might* be able to to Face to face. Check your local laws. Otherwise you find an FFL and do the transfer there.

Its *really* very easy, and I was shocked. Its part of the reason i got so many guns in a short time.

Long story short, my father had a bout of depression and mentioned suicide. He was in a care center for a few days to clear out and everything was dandy. Now today my local police department calls me up and says that the prosecutor has advised them that my guns and my mother's have to be stored out of the house at the police station till things clear up. They say I could take them out when I goto the range, but I have a hard time believing this at all, especially in NJ. Calling a firearms lawyer tomorrow and holding off on turning them over until them.

its sitting in my gun safe now, and works very well. Sure, you plug it in later to purge the water back into the air, but you sealed the door of your gunsafe with weatherstripping, right?

Unless you go in daily to fondle weapons, it works well. after all the ammo my tantal went through at the 3 gun, i just now got around to cleaning it. No rust even with the oppressive humidity and rain alternating we get. The closet my safe is in shares an outside wall, and its not privy to conditioned air.

That is a K11 rebarreled to 30-30? 7.5 Swiss is supposed to be VERY close to .308, so are you sure its a different barrel? i can't tell from pics

The research I read tends to read the rifles are pretty rare (30-30 k11), but i wonder if 'rare' in this case means only because not many people did that.

I just got a gun through West Coast Armory in Issaquah, the fee was ~$30 and they charged me the sales tax on the spot. Also, they let me walk away with it that day with my CPL.

I chose the place because the price was reasonable, it wasn't just some schmuck off the street, and it was about 10 min from my house.

Gun stores are not allowed to charge tax on anything they didn't directly sell to you. They didn't buy it, it didn't come from their inventory, so they have no reason to collect a tax. All they did was transfer it.

Unless he is collecting sales tax on the transfer itself. Or just 'collecting' the sales tax for the state it came from, which he will forward to them later (sure)

but I admit that some states have a very weird tax code.

I know it has been asked before, and will be asked again, but: 9mm defensive loads? Any difference in recommendation between a 3" XD and a P226?

Speer gold dots in 124g +P JHP are what I carry in my G19 now. The winchester SXT version of the same thing are also highly recommended, and they are much cheaper for seemingly the same performance.

i think the 124g +P are the closest to NATO 9mm pressure levels, so various military issue pistols with their heavier springs cycle it well, whereas they might balk at 115g WWB (I'm looking at you CZ SP-01)

I don't know if the P226 is 'meant' to run higher pressure duty ammo.

yeah, that was what I was trying to imply, but didn't i guess. The SXT is the better deal, unless you buy Speer in bulk. And i don't think i have ever found it in stock on like in the 50 packs, but SXT is all over (that I can see, anyway)

The reason I ask is because I saw some Simunition conversion kits for the HK USP for sale, and they were hand-engraved "PBSP." Pelican Bay State Prison is the only thing I could find that would make sense.


Typically guards inside the prison won't have firearms, not even the ERT/SRT guys in most cases. Firearms are usually confined to the towers and perimeter vehicles. At least in Michigan.

Speaking of which, we had a prison break here last week - three guys in the high security facility attacked a delivery truck driver with a shiv (tried to slit the guy's throat but thankfully were in too big a hurry), took his truck, and got most of the way through the fence. The three jumped out of the truck just as the perimeter vehicle drove up. The guard racked his shotgun and yelled "stop!" Two of the guys hit the ground and proned out. The third guy kept running and the guard took him clean out. I think they said it was about a 50-yard shot on a moving target with a short-barreled 870. All three were in for murder; the guy who kept running was in for life for murdering four members of his family plus his brother's girlfriend, all at Thanksgiving dinner.

Proof that simply racking your shotgun will only stop 66.66666..% of felons that break into your home

My SP-01 I found on gunbroker for $450 used. But it turns out it was so lightly used it was basically new. it still had the CZ grease on the inside.

SP-01s seem to be changing from run to run, as the tactical and stock config differences seem to be differing, as mine came with tritium sights, but i have the safety. The similar config seems to run $614.80 at CZCustom +$100 for the trigger job.

The Tactical model runs $668. Just the trigger job on a gun they don't sell is $80 + shipping cost both ways, so its cheaper to buy used and get it done. Or do it yourself.

Oct 21, 2008


Really think the sp01 'base' model was meant to have a safety and basic sights, and the tactical switched to tritium and a decocker. Optionally you had a target option with fiber optic sights. Then I think they just said screw it and gave the base model tritium too

Oh I think the tactical comes with wood grips. But I have all the same now, just a safety vs decocker, and I see no other difference. Plus it's easier to change the trigger on a safety model.

depends on what you like, and situation. The cheap orange foam ones for like .10 each work great for simple range trips for all calibers.

electronic muffs are great even at cheap levels, and you can hear conversations.

I recently switched to surefire http://www.surefire.com/EP3-Sonic-Defenders

They fit in my ears, they are cheap, and worked very well in the 3gun match i shot outdoors. I could hear people too. Not as well as with electronic, but not as bad as foam or non active earpro. The biggest plus was I was able to wear a hat, and get a better cheek weld.

Indoors i would probably stick with electronic earpro.

Find out what your local police department carries and carry that. Or, if they carry something else, what the closest 9mm issuing department uses. Because as much as we make fun of it and don't believe it, there actually are prosecutors that will try to screw you over for having "bullets designed to kill" in your gun (hollow points). And the best defense is being able to say you simply carry the same stuff the cops do.

(This fine advice brought to you by my local legal adviser but in no way shape or form is legal advice)

The only way this makes sense is that you are getting the same brand/load that a PD uses reliably and meets certain criteria. its probably cheaper in a shop frequented by cops since they order a bunch of it too for training (if its that kind of range)

There is no hardened DA that is going to be tripped up by your 'alleged' justifiable homicide because you happen to have the same bullets as the police use.

Not that I support or endorse this project in any way, but he can probably get a re-arsenaled 91/30 sniper (with a non-sniper stock and filled-in scope holes) for $10 more than a regular crappyr Mosin. I know the Ocala Armory in Florida imported a ton of them.

All of my research suggests that getting an original sniper mosin would result in you getting a shot out barrel unless you were very very lucky.

Otherwise you are getting a sniper that went through a rearsenal process and lost the stock, etc from its original configuration, making it hardly the shooter it once was.

Lorenz said he took cover behind a spruce tree so he could film the bears without disturbing them, but the mother bear picked up his scent.

She turned suddenly, he said, and looked him right in the eyes.

Then, roaring, she charged through the trees right at Lorenz.

I did add the disclaimer that I never used it for actual carry, but using it with my G19 in both 3 gun and IDPA, i have no problems at all with the button press + draw.

I just practice practice practice, and keep everything clean. More so because i am paranoid about getting my shirt or something bunched up in my holster and potentially getting in the trigger guard when i reholster.

The button press is adjustable too, it can go very light. My first time using it I went from hands up to draw + 6 shots in 4 sec, so its not impossible to use.

Was doing my AR build last night, put my stock onto my buffer extension tube, it was a little tight so I locked it into a vise and shoved it on. Only upon completion of that task did I realize I forgot to put in the buffer retainer spring and plunger.

Unfortunately something I did must have locked in the extension tube into the lower receiver incredibly tightly because now I can't unscrew the drat thing. Anyone have this happen before have some advice? Was thinking of picking up a strap wrench and having a go with that, but I dunno, its in REALLY tightly.

Did you mix up commercial and milspec tubes and stocks? They should not be that difficult to put on. It should also screw on pretty easily since the castle nut is what holds it to the lower securely.
