    OK, so I decided to sell off to handgun to fund the purchase of another. I am still very new to owning guns and I have never sold any type of gun. I have an interested buyer but I want ot make sure I protect myself if this person does something illegal with it down the road. As I understand it, I do not have to transfer the weapon through a FFL, correct? Does anyone know if, in Ohio, the buyer has to be 21 or if they can 18+?

    They don't have to be 21 to buy it, but you can't sell it to them unless they are 21 or over.:uhoh:

    Bottom line, yes, you need them to be 21 and not known to you to be disqualified to own/possess it for some other reason.

    I thought you only had to be 18 to buy a handgun from a private seller.

    To buy one from a FFL you have to be 21?

    I believe that as far as federal law goes that is true but I also believe that some states ave different laws when it comes to this.

    In OH you can't even legally be in possession of a handgun unless you are 21. I'm not saying that's how it's enforced, but that's the way it's written.

    Well I finally found what I was looking for. These darn laws are sure tough to find. I read this as don't sell handguns to anyone under the age of 21.
