    Proper way to sell used handguns in Indiana ?

    I have a couple of handguns that I am considering selling in Indiana. I bought them through a gun dealer about 20+ years ago and I have never sold a handgun.

    What are the requirements ? Do I have to do a transfer through a FFL dealer or just a bill of sale, etc. ?

    Is it different if I sold it to someone from out of state (KY) ? I live 20 mins. from Louisville, KY.

    For Indiana Residents-you need nothing, but wise to get a bill of sale
    -You must go through a FFL for out of state transfers.

    The FFL must be licenced in the same state that the purchaser resides.

    If you do not want to do a bill of sale (I've done it both ways depending on what the seller wanted... some people are offended or refuse to do this) it may also be wise to ask to "see" a driver's license (shows residency, shows a good faith attempt and obeying the interstate laws) and a LTCH (shows good faith attempt that the person is not a prohibited person).

    What does the bill of sale consist of?

    Some people like to note the buyer's name, address, etc. some prefer to just view a drivers lic. and carry permit.

    Sell them to me for $5 a piece; THAT, would be the proper thing to do!

    Find buyer. Meet with buyer. Buyer hands you cash. You hand buyer gun. Deal done.

    as long as you don't knowingly know that the person you are selling the gun to can not have the gun legally than you OK to go but a bill of sales is a mind helper i think
