So here's the backstory: A long-time family friend informed us yesterday that he had inherited a number of firearms a couple years ago that he, not being a "gun guy", stashed away in various closets in his house. When he discovered that I am indeed a "gun guy", he sought my assistance in selling them as he claims he does not want them in his house since guns are "not his thing". He also requested I take them home with me as he doesn't like the idea of them not being secured in case of theft (besides not wanting a gun in his home). I'm convinced the idea of firearms falling into the hands of criminals is his main concern, not the monetary loss. He likely isn't hurting for money anyway; he collects Corvettes... no joke. I do plan on running each serial number through HotGunz as a precaution. In a couple days, I will take a look at these firearms. I don't know the exact number and neither does he, but the volume sounds substantial. The person he inherited them from was a collector. He described one of the firearms as the "Al Capone" type that's heavy as hell and has a drum. I'm praying none of them are NFA or class 3 (as I know these I can't touch). As compensation, he offered to give me a commission on the legal sale of these firearms. I suggested he instead offer me first crack on purchasing any firearm I'm interest in adding to my collection to which he readily agreed. He readily offered selling them to me at a deeply discounted price... once I determine that what that price may be. I'll supply him with the current market value nonetheless. The rest I plan on using Gunbroker to sell as I have used this site extensively in the past to buy and sell (sale of C&R firearms). From the online research I've conducted so far, I see that a non-licensee can ship directly to an out of state FFL holder a rifle or shotgun. I also see that a handgun must be sent from FFL to FFL (other than FFL03). This much I understand. I'm presuming that shipping to a location within the state (NC), these same rules apply. I have stumbled across several posts on various forums outside THR where some claim a non-licensed person can ship a handgun via UPS 2nd Day Air to a FFL in the same state. This doesn't sound right to me. As for C&R, I have that covered since I hold a FFL03 and have shipped and received several over the years. Here are the specific questions I have: 1) Can a non-licensed person ship (by USPS or UPS) a modern long gun to a FFL01 who is out of state? a) if not, how about within the same state (NC)? 2) Are there any circumstances where it is acceptable for a non-licensed person to ship, via UPS, a handgun to a FFL01 either in-state or out-of-state? 3) Am I correct to presume a pistol purchase permit is require for FTF handgun sales? How about if the purchaser is able to provide an active CCW permit? 4) On the remote off-chance one or more of these firearms are indeed NFA or Class 3, must they be forfeited straight out or can he still profit in the (legal!) sale of such weapons? Thanks in advance!
