Hello again everyone,
Can anyone tell me, or point me in the right direction, about selling a firearm from one individual to another if one of those people are from out of state?
Here's the backstory; my brother lives in Michigan. He has no felony arrests and/or convictions, and as far as I know has no mental illness nor has any intention of using a firearm while committing a crime. I live in Indiana and own ahandgun that I want to sell to my brother. Thehandgun in question I bought from a private individual a couple of years ago, and I have a bill of sale from that transaction. Technically, thehandgun in question is still registered to the person I bought it from ashandgun registration in Indiana is purely voluntary.
My questions are these:
1. Is this type of transaction between private individuals (selling firearms across state lines) even legal?
2. Do I need to register the pistol in question in my name here in Indiana BEFORE I sell it to my brother?
Side note: At the time of this post, my brother DOES NOT have a Michigan CPL.
As always, my thanks in advance.
New Haven, Indiana
