Question about selling a firearm

If I am selling a firearm to a co-worker do I need a third party?
Can I just type up a bill of sale and include signatures, driver's license, and CHL copies?
Will I need to report the sale to get it out of my name?

Thanks everyone

That third party will be a Federal Firearms License dealer to make sure your friend can legally own a firearm.

Double check with your state laws regarding private firearm sales.

He can legally own it, he is a current CHL holder.

If your co-worker is a fellow Texan and CHL holder, he hands you money, you hand him the firearm. A bill of sale is a good idea, although it isn't strictly necessary.

One Texas citizen to another is perfectly legal, but...

One Texas CHL holder to another is perfect. Both of you know that, by definition, the other guy is a pre-screened, state certified Good Guy. What could be better?

I love Texas. :)
