PAFOA provides space for this marketplace for non-prohibited persons to offer to sell or buy legal firearms with other non-prohibited persons. It is the responsibility of every seller and every buyer to comply with all state and federal laws, which includes verifying the buyer's state of residence, refusing sales to prohibited persons, and additional requirements. If you're not sure of the laws, find out. For maximum safety, we suggest doing all transfers of advertised guns through a Federal Firearms Licensee or a Sheriff; this is mandatory for handguns, and mandatory for sales to out-of-state residents, and itís the only way you can get a PICS check done.
Requiring that your buyer show you a current PA License to Carry Firearms may provide some assurance that the buyer is not prohibited, but this is not foolproof. Being a registered user or someone that you've met personally is zero assurance of being non-prohibited for firearms possession.
Certain firearms, parts & accessories are also regulated by the National Firearms Act, so if you're not sure, do the research.
If you see an ad that you believe violates applicable laws, or if you believe you've been solicited to do an unlawful act, notify site administrators.
