Selling a handgun

The post in the other section reminded me that I was planning on selling my handgun, but had several questions. First, I am not a licensed gun owner, I inherited it when my wife's step-father died, will that make a difference? Second, how can I sell it (online), in such a way that I can guarantee that it doesn't go into the "wrong hands?" Third, is it even legal for me to sell while not being registered?

For reference, it's a Taurus PT 92, an exact clone of the Beretta 92, an I have 2 high capacity magazines.

pretty sure you arent allowed to sell handguns online...

Is there a local shooting range you could talk to? maybe a gun shop within an hour or 2?

It's currently at the local gun shop, on consignment, but it's gone nowhere, so I'm asking here.

I have it at the gun shop for $300...If I could find a legal, legitimate way to sell, to someone who would take care of it I'd take around $250, with the 2 15 round magazines, I figure that's a good deal, but without blue book, it's hard to pin down the exact price.

You are allowed to sell a handgun online. What state are you in? There may be some local laws that might prohibit it.

Basically you have to sell the gun through an FFL dealer. You give the gun to a dealer and they do the paper work to transfer the gun. The gun goes to a second FFL dealer and they complete the transfer on the buyers side. The buyer can then pick up the gun.

Not sure how Maryland works, but just because you inherit a gun doesn't mean you're allowed to own it. I know in CA there's a form you need to fill out declaring you obtained a firearm as a "gift" from a family member. In NY (at least when I used to live there) you're not even allowed to own without a permit.

Interesting question. I just looked it up on MD's website. It says that I can inherit, but only if the original owner fills out the form. Kind of tough when he's dead!

EDIT: Read it backwards! I get to fill out the form.

That might be a tough one. Were you identified as a specific or generic inheritor in a will, or did you just get everything by default?

I know when my dad died a couple years ago, his will technically said everything went to my mom, however as she was in NY with no permit and isn't a gun person, I took the handguns immediately so there weren't any issues with po-po. Unlikely there will be a problem, but we'll see how you feel around November 6 or so...

yes, NY sucks when it comes to getting firearms... cant even shoot a handgun without a pistol permit at the shooting ranges around me.
