    Just a question since I really don't know the answer.

    Should a seller post the name of the dealer that is going to do the background check, and how much will be charged, or should we all just keep this "off line" and make the arraignments if needed after the sale is agreed upon?:(

    Maybe the buyer has their own FFL they will want to use.

    No, that's to be decided between the two parties. You both might want to meet halfway if you live far apart, one guy might be from the other side of the state but'll be in that/your area at a given time, who's paying, etc. etc.

    I meant after a price was agreed upon not after the sale.

    That too I guess but I was joking about arrangement vs arraignment. Again sorry, I misspell things all the time but this was a little funny!
    Arraignment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arraignment
    Arraignment
    is a formal reading of a criminal charging document in the presence of the defendant to inform the defendant of the charges against them.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ UGH Been there done that ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I always hate the part when the damned prosecutor says I'm a Interstate offender. Pisses me off every time.

    Damn reading glasses!

    I spell checked it before I posted it but forgot to put my readers on, that is a very funny mistake. I hope never to be on the arraignment side of a gun sale!

    Thanks again Oldnewbie.

    I think it would be helpful for the seller to say in the ad, whereabouts he's at and if he has an FFL in mind, state that rough location and the respective price.

    I think the classifieds should be labeled "TOY DEPARTMENT"

    The weird part of the law is you as the seller have to surrender your firearm to a dealer, with no assurance of getting it back should the buyer being denied.

    Actually, that's not true. @Norm0931 an FFL here confirmed, as per the ATF, the FFL does not take the gun into their books until after the BGC is run on the buyer, that way it's not an issue to return the gun to the seller if the buyer fails the check.

    See this thread: https://www.northwestfirearms.com/t...-background-checks.203193/page-3#post-1307178

    See post #58 by @Norm0931 Here is part of his response:

    ATF has said they want the dealer to have the purchaser fill out the 4473 and run the background check. If the purchaser is approved, then the dealer will intake the firearm from the seller and transfer it to the purchaser. This ensures the transfer can actually take place before the dealer takes possession of the item. In addition, Oregon law requires dealers fill out a user gun transfer form and submit it to local law enforcement.
