    Default Selling or trading in guns that were gifts

    I have several handguns my old man gifted to me years ago. Thinking of offloading one or 2 I donít like. How does that work for doing a transfer to a gunshop? Obviously the guns in my dads name on the state police forms For when they were purchased. . I donít talk to him anymore so Iím not gonna ask him to go with me to transfer.
    Thanks

    No PSP-RoS transfer needed for father to son. Sell or trade them as you wish.

    I second that that you should cover that base as well, otherwise you can just transfer it through an FFL to whoever wants to buy it.

    Hey guys thatís a legit question. No falling out. I do kinda talk to him. Iím 44 years old. I just donít agree with some of his nonsense. So I avoid him and maybe talk to him once every 2 months. He would never ask for the guns back or report them stolen. So itís all legit

    YES, if you want to get your best money, try selling in the classifieds here, as a gun shop will only give you a fraction of what they are worth. Some of us are cheap SOBs, but will still pay more than almost all shops, and depending on what you have, quite a bit more.

    Think of going to Kelly Blue Book for cars and comparing trade in value (gun shop) versus private seller (classifieds).

    To follow proper protocol you should place your ad under classifieds. People can't respond to your ads publicly and make all kinds of comments on your wares there, they can PM you for info.
