    I'm a resident in Tigard about to sell my rifle to a person from Redmond who says he has a dealer license (FFL 01). He tells me there is no need for a transfer or a background check cuz of his license. He says he will show me his ID and give me copy of his dealer license along with a bill-of-sale. Is this all legal and true? Should I be worried about breaking any laws? I'm hoping this isn't some sort of sting. Thanks in advance.

    Please explain to me why it would need to go through an FFL?

    IF your shipping a gun from one state to another it has been my understanding that it needs to go from dealer to dealer.

    Maybe that's just pistols.

    I'd do it for the insurance and paper trail personally.

    I've shipped plenty of rifles and pistols directly to an FFL.
    USPS won't ship a pistol and Fed Ex / UPS require overnight delivery, which I assume they want to minimize the chance for any of their employee's to steal it.

    You can ship direct to an FFL - I have. You don't need to go through an FFL to ship on your end, but you can if you want.

    But check to make sure the buyer isn't faking it like others suggest.

    I would verify the FFL before doing anything else, then proceed if it's kosher.

    These days a copy of an FFL can be manipulated, so its ALWAYS best to run it thru the Ezecheck system

    When I shipped a handgun back to Ruger for repair, the FedEx rep needed a copy of their FFL before they would ship it.

    His FFL number matches up with his story. I guess I'm good to go. Thanks all.

    He may have meant Redmond, OR.

    We've got one too. ;)

    Under federal law, an unlicensed individual may sell to another unlicensed individual without performing a background check. It stands to reason that an unlicensed individual may sell to a licensed individual without a background check. You may want to double-check Oregon law to make sure you're in compliance.
