How do you feel it would be in your best interest to be in possession of an unregistered gun? What benefits are you thinking you would have if you were the owner of an unregistered gun?

The above poster is correct that if you are buying a gun off of the street you have no idea what you are getting into and if that gun was used in a crime. You would just be setting yourself up for major trouble in a lot of different ways.

If you believe that this economic crisis is a reason for you to have a gun in your possession (I'm not sure I understand where you are coming from on that) then go through the LEGAL channels to get it.


In the state of Nevada, where I live, it is perfectly legal to buy unregistered rifles, bolt or semi auto. If you buy from a gun shop or pawn shop then you will go through a background check, otherwise it doesn't matter who you buy from so long as you can be sure you can trust the person. I say check anyone out who deals in guns privately before buying.

Hey, you are very justified in feeling the way you do.
My advice, hit the yard sales in your area. If you can't find anything in your area then go farther, even to another state or country if needed.
These sitluations are "cash for product" nothing said.
Dont worry about buying a confiscated gun, but, I wouldn't buy a gun from a thug on the street. They don't re-circulate guns used in crimes. They simply sit in impound or are destroyed.
I'll say this! Mark my words! With this "obama" administration you can count on having any leagal gun confiscated. Then, there will be a socialistic
or comuneistic, government controlled state. country, world. At this point, you may be taken care of but you won't be able to even sneeze without asking first!
Get your GUNS MAN! You may need it during the revolution!!!

Touche!!!! Our Draconian firearm laws in Canada have not stemmed the flood of ILLEGAL guns crossing the border. Only rteason to register a firearm is so the police know where they are

i agree. Yard sales are the way to go. Yard sales in older neighborhoods (old people, not buildings), tend to have more firearms. Old people dies and leave guns behind. It's legal to buy these guns because the owner is dead, and can not do a transfer through an FFL.

i would ask anywhere besides where you are asking now. you can find someone looking and willing to sell illegal items easier than someone who knows what the patriot act is.

how do i find out if i can purchase a gun some other way besides through a store ?

i tried buying a rifle at Cabela's in Boise Idaho but got turned down. Apparently the court-martial i got in the army has flagged me.

Can I legally buy a gun from a gun show or just from an ad in the paper ?

I go camping a lot with my son and we run across a lot of bears. I would like some protection

To the op. I read the first two pages of this. IMO, go to a gun store or gun show, talk to people and buy a gun. Don't worry about registration crap -follow the rules! A .22 is the absolute best place to start (and quite possibly finish). Learn to use it and go from there. It's a great hobby on top of everything else. Have fun.

Is it legal to buy a gun from my brother? He purchased it from a pawn shop and was given a receipt of purchase only. He was told that's all he needed.

Can I buy that gun from him, legally? I bought a rifle at Dicks sporting goods and had to fill out a 3 page form and go through a BG check.

My bro says all I have to do is give him the money, no paperwork, no nothing and it's legal. Is this true.

If so, why did I have to go through all the hoops at dicks?

You had to jump through hoops at Dicks because they hold an FFL and are required to put you through all that. I'm not sure what state your in but private sales are not regulated as far as I know...


Unregistered firearms are not illegal. I own several myself, incuding pistols and none are registered, and none have to be registered.

I purchased several guns in Virginia when I lived there, none are registered and none had to be registered when I brought them to Texas.

I agree, there's a lot of ignorance on this thread. I can only hope people are saying the things they are due to local laws in their area. They should be aware though that their local laws do not represent the laws of every State.

Oh, and to answer the OP... Go to a local gun show if you really want to stay off the grid, you'll have your best luck there.

I am building two unregistered rifles right now.

aat a gun show a few Years ago i found two VZ24 Mauser actions and got them without any paperwork or even them asking my name.

One i just barreled in .308 and the other i plan to do in 30.06.

In the state in live in there is no requirement to register a homemade gun unless you are going to sell it.

These actions have Serial numbers but there never was any paperwork to say i bought them.

One person mentioned it may have been used in a crime.

Some truth to that, but it can be avoided if you deal with a
well known and older gun dealer at a rural swap meet,
or gun show, etc etc.

That is where most ppl around here get one.

Ask for a signed and dated receipt, and bring a friend
of good legal reputation with you.

I bought mine new at a store with paperwork.

I totally understand not wanting to be on "the list" thou.

That was made very clear in 'red dawn' even thou it was fiction.

In line with that, buy your ammo with cash.

I will reply since everyone here so far seems like an idiot. You can buy a gun un registered very easily and very legally. Search your state laws for firearms purcheses between person to person. If your state law does not require you and the seller to complete a background check then you may purchase the firearm of your choice pending you find one you like that an individual is selling. In Texas, my state it not required and I myself have bought several firearms this way. Perfectly legal and perfectly safe. The seller usually asked me for my drivers license to verify I was who I said I was, and some wont even sell to you unless you show them your conceal handgun license. This is the "guns show loophole" they love to spout about lol. But if the mouthpieces had even the most basic understanding of U.S. law they would understand that if something is not specifically made illegal then it is perfectly legal. There is no "loophole" to it. I will also urge everyone who reads this post to educate themselves on building their own firearm, off the books and perfectly legal. You can build you one of those evil Ak47 assault rifles fairly easily. The reciever is flattened out with all the holes pre drilled and all that is required is a shop press and a special dye to place the reciver in and walla you have a AK47 reciever mailed directly to your house completely off the books. The best part about it is everything else, according to the ATF if considered "parts" and those too can be mailed to your house via an AK47 parts kit. You assemble the whole rifle and you have a fully functional AK47. Now for the legal part, all the ATF says about building your own firearm since it will have no paper trail and no serial number is that you can never give it away, never sell it, and never transfer it to anyone. Upon your death the weapon must be destroyed. Search the internet for various websites that sell everything you need to build your own firearm. There are tons out there that with a little mechanical ingenuity can be built rather easily. I hope this nation arms itself to the teeth so that the government will go back into its rightful place and size that this nation first established it as, so I will help facilitate its demise anyway I can, have a wonderful day and check your local, and state laws to make sure there is no conflicting laws against building your own firearm at home. I am no lawyer and take no legal responsiblity for your actions. Have a wonderful day and do your own homework on this matter

the bulk of the my non class 3 fire arms were purchased private party. just check your local paper for adds for them go to flea markets and whatnot just make sure its legal in your state as i am unsure if its legal in all 50. the last gun i bought private party was from a widow whos husband died and she had no use for the gun so i took it off her hands for a fair price,only weird thing was she had her daughter(12) do the transaction.But after finding the 38 loaded with .357 hollow points it was probably for the best that they got rid of the gun as if she had fired it it could have exploded (i know 357 can shoot 38 but it usualy dont work with a 38 trying to fire a 357 ) papers like this for example are how you can find them in the local papers or websites,craigslist wont let you post them unless they are antique so dont waste your time there

OP, i didn't catch which state you are in but you might want to check facebook (in between gun shows) like they do here in FL.
not sure if it's ok to link the site but you can find it with "FL Gun Swap", which is perfectly legal, today.

I can't believe you're asking where to get an unregistered gun on a public forum and that you are even considering buying an unregisterd gun! Isn't it against TOS to discuss illegal activities such as this?

Not illegal, in many, many jurisdictions.

It is perfectly legal for a private person to sell a gun to another private person. I would recommend checking the wanted ads, then calling the person (not from your phone), and paying cash for it. Like another poster pointed out though, buyer beware, unless you can test fire it, may not work, or it could have been used in a crime for all you know. Not to mention, a stranger may be a little wary of letting another stranger load a gun there (as the person could then rob you).

But, buying a gun off a friend or acquaintance, etc.? Certainly wise, and perfectly legal in most places.

Don't worry about registration crap -follow the rules!

I'm sure the reason behind the OP was that there is a fear that should it come to the government seizing guns, if you registered, then they know exactly who has them and can more easily take them. Once, I would have thought this a very unrealistic fear. After seeing the laws passed in recent states however, I'm more convinced this idea isn't that far-fetched.
