      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

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!

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
