    Default PA person to person gun sale laws

    I bought my Mossberg 835 in NC and have lived in PA for 4 years. since i have been in college i have not had any opportunities to use it and i wish to sell it.

    What are the laws in PA conserning person to person gun sales. Do they had to be done at a shop or other facility? how are background checks done on buyers?

    I am interested in selling the firearm since i have no need of it while in school.

    Are you a PA resident? If so FTF sales of long arms do not require anything. Cash and go.

    ftf = p2p w/o mm.

    Face to face is a person to person sale with no middle man

    Lol. Whats "mm"?

    You don't need to use a gun dealer if your selling it to a PA resident.

    You might want to do a "Bill Of Sale" to the buyer. See LorDiego's post which has a very good one...................

    http://www.pafoa.org/forum/firearms-...-free-use.html

    It is always good to have the buyer bring a copy of their drivers license. It is good for record keeping on your end if the firearm is used in a crime and the ATF knocks on your door.

    Definitely write down the info on his drivers license. This way you have made a good faith effort to assure he is a Pa resident.

    Just a quick question: does the term "long arm" include shotguns?

    Also, on that bill of sale someone linked to, it has a statement about the buyer being 21. I thought the age limit for purchase/possession of rifles in PA was 18?
