    Default Why the new trend of ffl to transfer a rifle?

    Looking in the classifieds, I notice a semi high amount of people requiring a ffl transfer for a rifle. I am in no way complaining. Just curious what started this trend? Am i out of the loop on something?

    Lots of first time buyers looking for semi autos. It's an insurance policy. If I was selling an AR/AK here, I'd be asking for a transfer, unless I know you.

    Covering your ass is basically it.

    A transfer through a FFL pretty much eliminates all liability on your part.

    It always happens during shortages,scares and civil unrest. You can CYA with a bill of sale , DL and LCTF if you want to.Its up to the individuals of course , and do what you feel is right , but not everyone likes the govt knowing what they have in their arsenals or the people they trade with;Its really not their business either. You will only find trouble if you knowingly sell a a firearm to someone who is banned from having them, not supposed to own them for other reasons , or break Federal interstate laws which are a big no no.

    How are they covering their ass if they're engaged in a legal transaction?
    Bullshit, they're the 2a equivalent of a RINO.

    I understand wanting to cya. However we've always just used Bill of sale and copy of license or ltcf. Just seems odd to me seeing so many people wanting the transfer. Me personally, I see it as an added cost to the firearm. So I'd expect the price to be lower for the rifle. However I guess I can see how someone new to firearms wouldn't know any better and wouldn't think twice about it. I was more curious if something happened recently I wasn't aware of. That made the ffl transfer a better cya than the bill of sale. Tha KS for the responses!

    I only use FFL if absolutely necessary, like with pistols or interstate trades.If I ever suspect someone is even a little dirty I won't trade them.

    You might be the charge, but you won't beat the ride.

    Then there's the civil suits.
