So I have some questions.

I am at the range with my friend Bob.

Bob is shooting a nice pistol, but shoots mine and likes it even more.

I am shooting Bob's pistol, and Like it better than mine.

Can bob and I trade? Do we need to involve an FFL?

Can I sell Bob my gun? Do I need to involve an FFL for that?

What if they are rifles instead of handguns?

Is it State by State? or is it a federal thing?

Down here, as long as you're both state citizens and not felons, just swap, shake hands and head home.

Google N.C firearm transaction laws and you will see there is a pistol permit required from the local sheriff even if it is a private transaction.

That's messed up but it's the law in North Carolina..

Depends on the state. In Florida, you just swap and go home. When I buy from someone, I just hand over the cash and take the gun.

I am in Florida so I don't know N.C. laws that well but I thought as long as you have a carry permit you could buy other wise you have to get paper from the sheriff. There was a post about that a few weeks ago somewhere.

Under North Carolina law, it is unlawful for any person, firm, or corporation to sell, give
away, transfer, purchase, or receive, at any place in the State, any pistol, unless the purchaser or
receiver has first obtained a license or permit to receive such a pistol by the sheriff of the county
where the purchaser or receiver resides, or the purchaser or receiver possesses a valid North
Carolina issued concealed carry permit. This requirement to obtain a permit prior to the transfer
of a pistol applies not only to a commercial transaction, typically at a sporting goods store, but
also between private individuals or companies throughout North Carolina. N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-
402(a).

But big brother ISN'T watching right?

Nope, no issue there... Charmeck (the greater Charlotte - Mecklenburg County) area getting 5 bucks and a record every time I want to buy a new item for my collection doesn't seem wrong at all!

can't wait for my ccw...

Good for you..
I was just reading N.C laws and thought that sucked..
State and County laws always seem to differ.
Here in the St Louis area we can't open carry but in parts of Missouri it is perfectly legal..
Just depends where you live in your state..
