You ask sellers to indicate which state they are in.

Does this mean there is no FFL transfer required IF that State allows non-dealer-FFL types to trade directly?

For Example, Colorado allows "Want Ads" in Newpapers for private sales.

So if both Buyer and Seller are Colorado folks, then is it true that the rifle can just be shipped directly? Would there be some states allowing long guns but not hand guns to go direct?

Federal law says you can ship a long gun directly to a resident of your own state.

Some states do not allow this but most have no restriction.

The benefit to using a FFL to ship the weapon is it's out of your name. If you don't know the buyer and it get's used in a crime, then the LEO's come to visit YOU. With it on a FFL's book's you have the proof of transfer. Been there done that. It get's real expensive to prove you are innocent.

No, it simply means we have a rule on THR, and that is all it means. We do not pretend to know all the legalities of any sale in any state. That is left up to the seller and the buyer.
