Hello need assistance, I have a couple questions about Oregon gun laws someone might be able to answer for me. I would like to sell a hand gun that is in my name to a friend. This individual has a full time job wife, kids, house they rent until they find a house to buy and so on. I asked if he would like to buy this pistol because I need to sell it and don't want to go into a gun shop and get ripped off. I also don't have time to list the gun online. I just really need the money fast. When I asked my friend if he was interested he told me. When he went to buy a gun at a sporting goods store they denied him because his ID. So he asked me how it's legal to buy from a private sale and not a gun store? I wanted to give an answer but couldn't. I told him I would check out if there is a way to sell it legally to him since he is a law abiding citizen with no previous things on his record to prevent him from buying because he has bought in california so I can sell it to him legally. Originally I wanted to just go down to the local gun shop and do a gun transfer but now I found out he has a California drivers license for ID. I know what my response is probably going to be from a few people. Probably! "telling him to go to the DMV to get his ID changed to Oregon" I know if I tell him that then he might not buy my gun because of the hassle. He's not 100% sure if he and his family will live here for ever especially with the winter slowing down his work. They are not use to this weather here. He's also kind of buying the gun to help me out the good guy he is because I told him it would help me to sell to him versus me sell it at a hawk shop. That is why he was open about his current situation when he tried to buy a handgun here in Oregon recently. Then he said he has been trying to find time to wait in line to get his ID changed too. He really is a good guy. After he was going to buy the gun he is going to join the NRA and want to join TRI County Gun Club and take his boys shooting. He also want to get into Sporting clay shooting with me and IPSC shooting. I have been trying to think outside the box here because I would like to start shooting with him and wonder if I can get a California transfer form for firearms through an FFL dealer that does California Transfers. I hope to hear from someone. Maybe someone that can help me transfer my gun into his name for a transfer fee. I am going to call a gun shop tomorrow to see what they say. Please do not be alarmed I will not ever sell a handgun or any firearm unless it is legal to do so. That is why I am asking to learn what the exact law is. I wish it was exactly as it was written in the 2ND amendment so I wouldn't have to ask a question like this. I would allready know the answer. Make sure he is a U.S. Citizen and it is clear. I have bought all my guns from dealers but I have always seen ads for guns for sale from private people in the paper or on different postings on the tack board at the gun clubs. I have always wondered about the laws on private sales. I am looking forward to hearing from someone to help clear this up. I do have legitimate questions and your knowledge in Oregon and California firearm laws would be greatly appreciated.
