What some have said already here. I ask about the same stuff that I did when I sold a bicycle. So long as you don't get a very bad vibe from the other guy it is a basic transaction.

Recently bought a gun from a member here, we talked a couple of times via email and once on the phone we met I handed over cash he handed me gun done.

..........If I am selling or buying a hand gun I always get ID and I write out a form with the gun info, and what I think is the most important info, The Date when it was bought or sold. Then have it signed.

:) But I happen to know that the information on the form you got when you sold your G26 is no longer accurate! ;)

..............I am only concerned in that particular date. After that it does not matter to me. How is it no longer accurate ? :?

I should have said "current" instead of accurate. There is no paper trail between who you sold it to and me. If I start acting grumpy, its because I caught something from your gun! :lol:

How would LE know that you didn't fabricate the "log" record?

Hmm...

On this date, James Beatty did acquire, ignite, and subsequently completely incinerate one (1) twenty-four (24) inch length of Quercus Alba, hereinafter referred to as "the log."

I would not want to do business where a private seller recorded my info.

Good arguments against a Paper Trail but what would You do if You purchased a Gun and later it was found to be one used in a Murder or some other Crime?
I for One would like to be able to prove where I got the Gun from.
I will never sell a Fire Arm to or Buy a Fire Arm from Any One that refuses to give a Legal Name and Address for the Receipt.
