Legally Selling Leftover Commercial Ammo

Post by skb12172 » Tue Jul 22, 2014 4:39 am

As I mentioned in another thread, I'm about to replace my PA-63 with a Springfield XDS45 within the next month. I'll be selling the PA63 locally, with 5 mags, through a local FFL. My problem is this…

That will leave me with about 450 rounds of Wolf FMJ 9x18, plus about 20 or so rounds of Hornady JHP. Are there any legal concerns about selling this stuff privately to someone who uses Mak caliber?

Fire Away!

No legal problems, unless you live in one of those states that requires documentation of ammunition sales.
It's yours, sell it or trash it or whatever.

You should shoot it all up before you sell the pistol just to make sure everything works properly. Wouldn't want to sell somebody a gun that was less than well tested. 8-)

Doubtless because they can't find a way to collect a second set of excise tax on it, right?
