Sale of a gun?

Question

slabberknocker

I am selling a shotgun (private sale) and was wondering if there is any law in MN preventing that or if there is anything I need to do? Thanks

If you can verify his or her age by looking at thier drivers license (18) and are not selling to a known felon (as in, you KNOW your brother-in law is a felon but sell it to him anyway)you need to do nothing.

A felon is prohibited from owning guns and conducting a "backround" check is not your responsibilty.

The sort answer is NO.

i would write up a bill of sale and have both parties involved sign two copies and each keep one. with the make model and serial number. if you purchased the firearm new the nix check with the guns serial number is in your name. if - god forbid - the gun was used in a crime and recovered you have prof of sale and who you sold it to. just a good idea.

if you want to go the extra step, your local police station should have firearms transfer forms you can fill out and file documenting that you no longer own the gun.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
