FAQs: Individual sale or purchase

Q - What are the necessary steps involved in the sale of a handgun from one licensee to another?

In instances where a handgun is being sold from one licensee to another, the receiving licensee must obtain authorization from his/her licensing officer in the form of an amendment to their permit prior to acquiring the handgun.

A Purchase Coupon detailing the specific weapon to be purchased should be completed by the licensing authority prior to the sale and be given to the licensee disposing of the gun as proof of lawful disposition.

Note: The licensee selling the gun should complete an amendment to his/her pistol permit disposing of the weapon following the transaction.
