It is perfectly legal to buy and sell firearms provided federal and state legal statutes are obeyed. Transfer of firearms ownership between individuals must be managed by a third party who is a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder. Virtually anyone who is involved in the sale or distribution of firearms is an FFL holder, including gun shops.
To take delivery of a firearm, buyers must either have an FFL, or find an FFL in their local area to accept delivery on their behalf. This typically means the buyer must contact a local gun shop and make arrangements for the transfer. By involving an FFL holder, a buyer can verify that all state and federal laws will be observed. For most firearms, a buyer must be able to pass a background check. The FFL holder that a buyer uses must mail us a signed copy of their license. Usually they will assess an additional charge above the price of the gun for their involvement in the transfer. The Gun And Dive Shop charges a $35.00 transfer fee.
The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms has additional information, and a FAQ page about transferring ownership of firearms by unlicensed persons on their web site.
