    Yes, but just like your "name" is on the original transaction of the bar of soap you bought yesterday.

    You don't have to do anything. It is what the mis-informed and Libs and anti-gun folks call the "GUNSHOW LOOPHOLE".

    And long may the flag of freedom wave.....Imagine, being able to sell an item that is your personal, private property without asking for the Federal Governments permission.

    They are working hard to change that. They haven't done it yet.

    Ok, I do not "know" for sure if paperwork needs to be done or not. However, I am willing to take your words that it does not.

    Can anyone tell me why the majority of people selling items in the classified section stipulate: "Must be willing to, show Indiana Driver's License, LCTH, and sign a bill of sale"

    because that is the terms the seller is setting..
    the seller can always require more than the law does..

    Many think it "covers" something.

    It doesn't.

    The 4473 checks you not the firearm, no gun registraction in Indiana, you can sell a firearm to a non felon Indiana resident over 18 with no paperwork, if you want to CYA you can take it to a FFL and have them do the transfer, most charge for this service

    see your other thread..
    there is no state database of gun owners.

    even if you do paper work, the paper trail from the factory is going to lead to you if the gun is traced..
