    I like to exchange a gun and cash, and then wish the other guy a nice day. I know some people prefer paperwork that doesn't mean anything because it's not notarized, or maybe even a NICS check, I prefer exchanging crap and wishing the other guy a nice day. If it's a real serious transaction, I may also include an optional handshake.

    I appreciate the effort, but I agree with KD. Cash exchanged for gun and everybody goes on their way. If somebody wants me to fill out paperwork, I'll be happy for them to buy/sell with somebody else.

    Thats a bit too long for my taste, I would like to avoid something that feels like you are reading the small print of a leasing agreement. Because I never travel to firearms FTF alone (my lady and I), I want to make the sale as quick as possible to minimize our exposure to a possible risky scenario while being as sure as possible that the transaction is legitimate.

    IF I did a bill of sale I would prefer and be most comfortable with something short and sweet. Here is my chopped version of your example:

    Date of Sale: ______________

    Make: ____________
    Model: __________
    Caliber: ____________
    Serial #: ______________

    This firearm is sold as is. Buyer assumes all responsibility once transfer of ownership has taken place. The buyer attest that he meets all legal guidelines of firearms ownership as defined by the state of Oklahoma (this includes age, ability to pass background check and mental fitness).

    Buyer: ____________
    Signature: _____________

    Seller: ______________
    Signature: _______________

    I received word today that a friend of mine, Connor, passed away to what I believe was a heart attack. We were just laughing and joking together yesterday in class and only a few hours later Connor passed away. Life is short so cherish every second. May you forever rest in the presence of The Lord, Connor "Bubba" Hamilton. 2/18/14

    I rarely sell guns, and those I sell are those I buy private party...

    And when I buy, I do so under an alias...

    BTW I just sold a firearm last weekend to what appeared to be an upstanding citizen, all that occurred was a quick inspection of the firearm, cash exchange and a hand shake.

    I am in the no paperwork camp. If I am buying not from a dealer, I am not going to fill out or sign anything or show id, etc. Its a cash and go or no deal.
    I am seeking random advice on the internet from people whose knowledge and intentions cannot be verified. Your contributions are appreciated.

    All this stuff going on has made me leery of doing any private firearm transaction.

    I now plan on asking 3 questions during private firearm transactions.

    1) Are you a resident of Oklahoma?

    2) Can you legally purchase/sell this firearm?

    3) Are you a fed?

    Well maybe I'll just ask the first two.

    That's why everybody is different,
    If we were all the same there would be no bill of sales and a whole lot of trees would be saved!
