I found a guy on another forum selling a Springfield XD. The price is right and he lives in my state and we have arranged to meet monday to exchange cash for gun. My problem is, I have never bought a gun from a private person that I don't personally know. For all I know this gun is stolen.. I highly doubt it, the guy seems to be genuine, but you never know. In my state gun registration is not required.. So I dont plan on registering it. I would rather not have the government know what I have anyway if the SHTF and one day they want to try to take them. My question is... What should I do? I am thinking I will request a bill of sale to be written up to cover my ass. Other than that, should I do anything? Also, just to inform, so nobody says anything.. We are meeting in a public place.
