  • Date, time and location of the transaction.
  • Information about the seller. Enter their full name and their physical address, including the city, state, and zip code. Please do not enter a PO Box address.

  • Purchase price of the firearm and method of payment. Specify the amount agreed upon by both parties in US dollars.
  • Signatures. Both the buyer and the seller must sign the bill of sale and enter the date.
  • Certification of seller. The seller should certify that the firearm has never been used in a manner of questionable or certain illegality. They should also certify that they are the legal and rightful owner of the firearm and thus have the full right to convey it.

When a gun owner wants to carry their firearm with them in Alabama, they are required to have a Concealed Carry Permit. However, state law does not require a permit to purchase a firearm. Also, new gun owners do not have to register the firearm with the state. In order to get a Concealed Carry Permit, they must apply at their local county Sheriff's department.
