    No. A "Record of Sale" form the size of a postcard was completed by the FFL at the time of sale of a handgun, but there was no background check in the early 1970s.

    I remember walking around nose high to the tables in the '60's, not having a clue what I was looking at and my father used to just buy them. The nice men used to wrap them up in newspaper for him.

    You sure you weren't at a fish market?
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    Thank you. Now. Could I privately sell a pistol in the early 1970's?

    100% sure, that would have been mom at the A&P on Saturday at closing time when she bought everything that was left at bargain prices and the fish were in a glass case.

    You planning on buzzing back to the '70's and selling something?
