    I've searched without luck for this topic. I just would like to know how I go about doing one when I sell a rifle that is in my name. I've never heard of any info regarding the matter.

    If its already a topic and I missed it please point me to it.

    Thanks in advance!

    How is the Rifle "In your Name" I wasn't aware that Washington State had a requirement to register any type of firearm..

    The rifle would be "in his name" if he bought it from a FFL and did paper work.
    Yes somebody has a record somewhere.

    But to sell in this state you don't "register" a private sale
    If you want to,you can do a transfer through a FFL,I believe.
    Never done it myself,just traded guns or green backs.

    Here's a link to a Firearm Bill Of Sale that I'm going to use in the future.

    I have basically the same one saved on my computer, only the fields are setup as a form that you can type the information into. The upside of using one (as a seller) is that if you were the original purchaser and the weapon ever shows up in a criminal trace, you have some sort of proof that it is not yours anymore and who it went to when you got rid of it.

    EXACTLY why I wanted to do one. Thanks for the info!

    And they are slightly registered to you. In that sense I mean if a cop calls up the serial number for the gun it will trace back to the person who purchased it and did the paper work.

    You are quite right about that, I get calls for gun trace at least once a month & I bet most of the older ones are just pointless,as many folks trade up stuff constantly
    Unfortunately there is no way for you to Un-Register the gun. Right now the Manufacturer knows which Distributor bought your gun. That Distributor will tell the Gov't who the retailer was & the retailer will tell them that You bought it originally--there is no way to legally have the guy who sold the gun to you, notify the Gov't that you no longer own that gun, that I know of. I live in Arizona, but I believe the same Federal Laws bind us all together.

    I didn't plan on taking my computer with me when I sell a firearm so I didn't set it up that way purposely. Easier to take a piece of paper with me.

    Yeah - I can print it blank too! Just easy to at least fill in the stuff I know up front it I have it (my info, make/model/SN). I'm a geek anyway.
