Question about selling my XD handgun

Recommended Posts

I want to sell my Springfield XD 9mm and have a gentleman from MN interested in buying it from me. I live in WI. This would be a face to face sale, paid with cash. He is wondering if theres any paperwork we need to do. I don't believe so, but I wanted to check on here to see if anyone had any advice for me to make sure I'm not doing anything illegal. Thanks much for any help!

Brenda

Selling handguns is a lot different than selling long guns. Being as you are selling it across state lines, and it is (likely) registered in your name, I would get a FFL involved.

If the guy you are selling it to bawks at the FFL dealer and paperwork, then you don't want to sell it to 'em.

Yeah what neighbor guy said. If your were to sell it to him and then he in turn uses it in a gun crime they would trace it back to your name and knock on your door.

What they said plus don't forget to right a bill of sale and also ask to see if he has a current permit to purchase in Minnesota. I Know alot of people that love to buy guns with no paper trail their not doing anything bad with them they just don't want big brother to know what they have and nothing is wrong with that.

I myself like to purchase firearms from private parties with no rcord of a sale to the goverment.

If you are concern about the person purchasing it, let a gun dealer make the sale. I persoanlly have sold nemerous weapons to private parties. I just have them sign a bill of sale so my butt is covered.

Sounds to me like you already know this person.

A bill of sale is a good idea. Its just a record to show the date and time of purchase so to speak in case the Feds come tracking you down if ins the weapon is used in a crime.. No biggie.. just a useful tool to show that you no longer own it.

I wouldnt sell to an out right stranger.. just cuz Id be afraid that I was providing a gun to someone whom I shouldnt be.. and yes.. THAT IS ILLEGAL

If you use an FFL, it will have to be shipped to an FFL in the buyers state and a 4473 and NICS backrgoud check would have to be conducted by the recieving FFL holder. This is not a bad idea when selling a handgun to someone you may not know.

I would suggest you mail yourself a letter with the following data. DO NOT open the letter. Once the letter goes through the postal service it is considered a dated document. Date of sale, copy of DL (if they are ok with it) note the gun and serial number, both parties should sign. Hope this helps you.

Archerysniper,

Email me at rksruger@hotmail.com. I actually have a XD 9mm and a 40, I think the guy tomorrow is going to buy the 40, so I might still have the 9 left.

I think I will do a bill of sale with this guy. I don't know him, he said he has a permit to carry/purchase. Thank you all for the advice. Just trying to get some cash but wanted to make sure I'm doing things right. Thanks again.

I think the Dairy Queen parking lot in mid day is pretty safe. Husband is going with me. Guy doesn't sound like a creep, and he isn't from the ghetto, so should be okay. smile

    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
