so there was a guy online selling some of his guns to fix his car. i was interested. said he would only sell to "CWP holders" and no one under 21 on handgun. so i said i'll buy a couple of his guns for a deal. he agrees. i call him to discuss time and place and he then informs me "just so you know i'll need a bill of sale, and i have a form from the WA STATE PATROL i'll need you to fill out to transfer the firearm to you, because its registered".....i asked why it was registered, and he said all new hand guns bought through ffl dealers are registered with state patrol, and he doesn't want the serial number tracked to him if i lose it, or it gets stolen from me. i know that these forms are not mandatory for private sales. but i read the laws and it says the state patrol will not keep any records even on hand guns. the only person that keeps a record is the FFL sales records for 7 years. (think its 7 maybe 3?) anyone know if this is true? he said he had a state patrol buddy that could run the serial number on the guns and they come up belonging to him. and that this state patrol form transfers that name to me. i said i wouldn't fill those out, i have a CWP, but the whole point in private sales is better prices, no tax, and NO FORMS. not complaning its his guns he can do what he wants, but just curious on the validity of his "the state patrol keeps a record of all hand gun purchases at FFL dealers.(i.e. cabelas, big 5, jonh doe gun shop).
