    Interesting answers so far.

    I sold only one pistol a few yrs ago w/o using a FFL. I asked to see his DL and made out a bill of sale.
    In hindsight, I would not do this again and would go thru a FFL if I ever sell again.

    Even if I personally know the individual; I still will not do it as they may sell the gun to a stranger.

    As John W in SC said, "Why take chances?"
    All my firearms have been purchased at a LGS; so if I sell, the FFL proves I no longer have that gun in my possession.

    I fully realize some law abiding people do not want a paper trail; I'm OK with their choice in that; it's just not me.

    I seldom sell a gun/rifle, but when I do it is never thru a FFL. I do use a bill of sale and check the buyers drivers license on all face to face transactions.

    Consider what might have happened if the first owner couldn't show when the gun left his possession.
    Nothing, unless the PD and prosecutor's office wanted to set themselves up for a lawsuit.

    Exactly.

    There is alot more to connecting a person to a crime than just who owned the gun.

    You have to be able to place a person at the crime scene for one. That's a tall order when the person who owned the gun at one time wasn't there.
