I have another individual intersted in buying a gun that I am the registered owner of. What kind of information do I need to get, or are there forms I need to fill out? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

There is no firearm registration. When you buy a firearm from a dealer your info is run through the BCS to make sure your legal to own a firearm. After so long, I forget the time period, that information is supposed to be destroyed. As for private transactions, there is no paperwork involved. Personally I would have a bill of sale made, just to cover my own liability.

I forgot to put the type of gun. It is a shotgun, Browning Gold Hunter, semi-auto. Therefore, I believe it does not fall under the "military assult" catagory. I appreciate all the assistance in this matter.

Tren:

The MN firearms laws in Section 624 apply to ALL firearms, NOT JUST pistols or assault weapons. Note that this is DESPITE the fact that 624.711 is still on the books and states that 624 does not apply to shotguns or hunting rifles.
