buying a firearm from a person need to know what is the best way to do this
Are you buying from a person in the same town as you, or from out of State, or what?
I am not sure where you are. Virginia? I do not know your State and local laws pertaining to Face To Face transactions.
More information would be appreciated, and needed to help you.
assuming your wanting to buy one from out of state and have shipped to your FFL dealer
or postal money order which gives you some protection if its lost or stolen but not much in the case if the seller is a crook then you have to file a police report and hope they can pressure the crook in sending your firearm.
Face to face deals cash only
In a FTF transaction, cash is king.
For interstate sales through a FFL, USPS MO is the best from the seller's point of view.
1. Check and verify local laws.
2. If FTF is allowed: cash speaks
3. interstate FFL's: use something that can be tracked and is guaranteed money.
If it's FTF, cash is king. If you're sending it through the mail, anyway you go is a crap shoot...
