Regulations for purchasing firearms in Colorado
I usually don't have too many legal questions regarding firearms but I just can't figure this one out. I live in Colorado and have a buddy that is interested in selling a Marlin 39A rifle. The price is simply too good to pass up and I know I couldn't find one anywhere else for that kind of price. What would be required in order for me to purchase the firearm from him? I've only purchased firearms from stores and pawn shops that do background checks.
Anybody familiar with purchasing or selling firearms in Colorado that could help? Do we need to go to an FFL or can I simply give him the money and be done with it?
