I just waded through the Firearm Laws and Questions, all 20 pages pages of it. Somewhere in there I had a moment of clarity and remembered an event from my past. Back in the late 70's I sold a Colt 1911 to a trooper in my unit. We were both over 21 but neither of us were originally residents of the state our unit was based in. I never thought about it until today. Ignorance was bliss, then. Glad the statute of limitations has passed.
