Selling an Expensive Gun in Idaho? Do it the Smart Way and Consign!
Selling a gun in Idaho should be a breeze for mist as the regulations for firearms are favored for gun rights supporters. But for those in the state with expensive and coveted firearms selling locally to capitalize on the pricey investment may not be in your best interest. It limits your pool of potential buyers, could take longer than expected and there is uncertainty that the transaction is in compliance with all federal and state regulations.
To save a headache, leave it to the professionals at Dunlap Gun Consigners.
We employ some of the cutting edge marketing tactics to ensure top dollar firearms fetch good coin in record time. We guarantee our clients receive the most money for their firearm when compared to other consignment services within 15 – 30 days of inquiring and agreeing to consign a firearm.
But for those still determined to sell on their own, we have put together a useful guide to ensure the transaction is in compliance with the law.
What is the Process of Purchasing a Firearm in Idaho?
Anyone buying a firearm from a licensed firearms dealer must complete a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms form 4473. The purchaser must, under the permanent provisions of the Federal Brady Law, also undergo a National Instant Criminal Background Check System check, which will be performed by the licensed firearms dealer.
The check will indicate to the dealer whether the purchaser’s background allows for the person to complete the purchase of the firearm. If the check disallows the sale for no warranted reason, there is an appeal process the purchaser can pursue to receive the necessary clearance to complete the purchase.
There are no specific state laws addressing private sales of a firearm between private parties. However, there are penalties for buyers and sellers if the firearm was sold to an ineligible person, selling a defaced firearm or selling a restricted firearm (explosive weapon, machine gun) which can result in different criminal charges including and up to a felony criminal charge.
Restrictions of Firearm Ownership in Idaho
Generally, Idaho defaults to federal law regarding the sale and purchase of firearms.
In order to purchase a long gun or shotgun, a buyer must be 18 years old or older to legally purchase them and pass the background check. For shoppers looking to purchase a handgun, buyers must be at least 21 years old or older and pass the background check to legally buy the gun.
FEDERAL DISQUALIFICATION CATEGORIES
- Conviction (felony or misdemeanor) where the crime has a maximum imprisonment term exceeding 1 year (even if a buyer did not receive actual imprisonment exceeding 1 year).
- Warrant (felony or out-of-state misdemeanor).
