Wal-Marts would work best IMO.
NOT a good idea, because that's a firearm transaction on their property and legally requires them to perform a legal transfer with 4473, BGC, etc. Don't know how accurate that is, but I have read it.
I've bought guns and things from guys in all kinds of places, but usually parking lots like WalMart, Home Depot, etc., places that are easy to find and meet at. Strangest purchase was a Winchester .44 carbine from a guy that I met at his office, he turned out to be an FBI agent and we did the deal in an FBI office! Wasn't expecting that. Nice guy and smooth deal though.
I met a guy in a remote church parking lot once, but he was a LEO. I also met a plastic surgeon in his office.
Even though I live in a rural area where guns are commonplace, I don't like the idea of buying or selling in someone's home for reasons that have nothing to do with displaying a gun in public. I certainly wouldn't let a stranger know where I live when selling one....he might decide to come back later for all the rest.
In the McDonald's parking lot, late morning.
Near the front of the 100 yard gap between WalMart and Sam's. Very light car traffic at noon on a weekday. The buyer rode his motorcycle and I followed about seven miles to his suburban bank. We stopped in front of his house to do the deal. He wrapped up the rifle in my trunk, to disguise its shape for carrying into his house. Neighbors are almost always nosy.
The front of Kroger, on the parking lot's side edge.
Never inside somebody's home unless really familiar. If that is the only place where He wants to meet, No deal is possible.
Tinpig: Beautiful! After my next Garand, probably a 1917.
Out of curiosity, would you have any qualms about someone coming to your house to buy a used car, or just a gun?
It is not lost on strangers-to-me that they have to go on camera coming in and leaving the bank.
Mostly guns, but I wouldn't want to sell any sort of desirable, small, valuable easily fenced item either. Guns are sort of a special case because you are letting a stranger know you have small, portable, high value fenceable items in your house. Few gun owners have just one but you can't drive by my house and know how many guns (if any) are inside.
Everybody knows I have a car because it's setting in the driveway.
I second these.
When using Armslist, I'm close to all three of these.
Banks, near police station, supermarkets with lot cameras, etc.
Separate names with a comma.
