Can I Sell my Gun in Idaho?

You can sell a gun in Idaho to any individual without a license. Idaho gun laws provisions do not require individuals to acquire a permit to purchase handguns. Moreover, while federally licensed firearms dealers must conduct background checks on prospective buyers, private and unlicensed sellers are not required to do so prior to transferring a firearm. Also, owners of firearms do not need to be licensed in order to own or carry them.

However, you may only sell guns to people who are aged at least 18 years and that have never been convicted of a felony charge. Minors under the age of 18 are able to purchase firearms only if they provide written consent signed by a parent or legal guardian.

If you are selling a firearm, you should keep in mind that if you intentionally transfer a firearm to a gang member it is considered a felony. In addition, the transfer of ammunition to anyone under the age of 16 is expressly prohibited by Idaho Code provisions.

Does Idaho Require a Bill of Sale to Sell a Gun?

Idaho firearm dealers or individual sellers are not required by law to complete a Bill of Sale when a gun is sold. Instead, creating a Bill of Sale is more about recordkeeping. It is advisable that the seller and the buyer have this document on record in case a situation arises that would require either party to provide proof of sale.

Does a Gun Bill of Sale Have to Be Notarized in Idaho?

Idaho does not require a notary public's certification for firearm sales but it can be a good idea to have a notary or witness to a firearm sale in order to confirm the transaction has taken place. This can save any potential trouble which might occur should the seller or buyer contest the transaction at a later date.
