    Default Question about transfer of ownership...

    Hey, I'm new to this site so sorry if this has been asked before.

    I live in NY(not new york city, I live on Long Island). My friend wants to sell me one of his rifles who bought it here as well. Currently he is in pensacola, FL in navy training. My question is is there a process that must be followed in order to transfer ownership or can he physically just give me the rifle no strings attached? I know that you have to go through a federal dealer to transfer pistol ownership, but I'm not sure about rifles. Anybody in NY know the answer to this one? Thanks for the help. :)

    Welcome to the forum. FIRST and most important, do NOT rely on info you get from an individual as to gun laws. Look them up yourself and VERIFY them. It's too easy to misunderstand or misinterpret what someone says on the internet. Most of us are not lawyers and do not play them on TV.

    Thanks for the quick response. I actually did look up a ton of stuff on google but I couldn't find this actual situation in my state, which is what led me to post here. :) Anyway I'll check out those links, thanks!

    Gunrnr gave you sage advice.

    Since I have a connection to New York, I just double checked. It is the same when I lived in NY years ago. There is no license requirement for the transfer of a long gun. If this is a hunting type rifle, you are good. If your county has it own rules, you need to obey them. Just because your friend is in the Navy does not mean he is no longer a resident of New York. As long as he can claim residency (driver's license or similar) and the firearm is in the same state as you are, you are good to go. I would take a very serious look at the "assault weapon" rules if the firearm falls into that category.

    If you are that jumpy about it, you could have a gunshop act as a mediator for you. If take that route, you will need to pay for their time and do all the paperwork.

    there is no federal law requiring anyone to privately transfer ownership of a pistol through an FFL. That is probably an NY aberration. In AZ the ONLY time an FFL is involved in a sale is when the FFL is transferring ownership-making a sale.
    In a FREE state, the private sale of firearms is exactly that - private. I have 4 guns on the dreaded 4473. My 870 which was my first shotgun, one AR15 and 2 bare AR15 lowers, all purchased before the AWB went into effect. The 2 lowers I have yet to assemble.
