While at lunch I saw a sign for a yard sale for tommorrow. One of the items for sale will be gun(s). I had been thinking of buying a shot gun for varmint stuff. Anyone know what the law is to buying a gun between private parties in Pa?
My understanding from below would be that a typical shot gun sale between private parties would require no paper work?
I did find this here
Private parties that sell firearms as defined under §6102 to each other must do so at the place of business of a dealer or sheriff’s office and undergo the same requirements as listed above. This does not apply to the sale of firearms that fall outside of the definition of §6102 (typical rifles and shotguns) and transfers between spouses, parents and children, and grandparents and grandchildren
For purposes of the Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act of 1995, a firearm is defined as any pistol (including revolvers) with barrels shorter than 15 inches and short-barreled (including “sawed-off”) rifles and shotguns. Exact measurements required are 16 inches (or shorter) for rifle barrels, 18 inches for shotgun barrels, or any pistol, shotgun, or rifle with an overall length of less than 26 inches. 18 P.S. §6102
