    I was wondering what the rules are on buying a handgun and private transfer. I am 20 and the guy I'm buying from said I dont need to do an FFL transfer but fill one of these out:

    Can I do this since I'm not 21 yet or do I have to get it transferred over?

    You don't even need to fill out one of those forms. Just give him the money. Do whatever you feel comfortable with, but understand that form is voluntary (and says so right on it). You can buy a handgun from a private party at 18, so you are good to go.

    Awesome thanks guys. This site is great.

    Yeah I asked about carrying it before I even talked to the guy, because I got some wrong information from some friends about carrying.

    If you look at the RCW's on the form, 9.41.040 you will see that you are disqualified if you are under 18.

    Uh yea I know. I was pointing out the age for disqualification for buying a firearm. Other pointed him to the wrong RCW's.
