Safest way to sell a pistol? - PA
« on: March 12, 2019, 08:02:17 AM »
In PA all sales need to go through an FFL and im a bit leary about taking payment in form of a money order or personal check as ive never really dealt with sales like that. Ive never sold a firearm online before either.

What/where would be the most reliable place or method to selling a pistol other than to a local shop?

Local gun shop or a local FFL.

During the sale there will be three people there.  You being the seller, the buyer and the FFL who fills out the forms for the transfer and make a call to check the buyer.

I have purchased a number of guns online from other states.  Mainly GunBroker.  Pistols and rifles work the same way.   If I sell you a gun (MI to PA), once I have your money I must take my gun to an FFL or gun store and have them ship my gun to your FFL.  That’s FFL to FFL.  Some states require a FFL to FFL transfer.

MI works a little different. If I buy a gun from you, once you have my money you can ship the gun to my FFL.

Sell it on PAFOA.  Cash only if you dont want to deal with sending it or internet payments.

What are you selling?

If you're shipping check with FFL to get a shipping price b4 you list it so you can make sure you're charging enough in your ads.
