    I purchased a gun from a friend (FTF) and am trying to sell it now. Do I have to register the gun to my name before selling it? I have a bill of sale.

    I'm pretty sure the FFL can accept it. But if it's a non-FFL across state lines, then no you can't. Please research this however, because some guy on in the internet is probably not going to make a good defense or defense attorney if you get caught on a crime.

    Ask the FFL you're selling to about specifics, they should know.

    The specifics of gun laws are incredibly annoying.

    I sent coctailer a message asking specifics to see if I needed to register the gun to my name or if a copy of the bill of sale would suffice. I guess I will see what he says,

    By FEDERAL LAW.........you as an non-FFL OR resident cannot transfer a firearm to a WA resident. The transaction/transfer must go through an FFL.


    Taken from the ATF site.
