This is great information. I do have one scenario that is unclear to me.
A private sale scenario for a long gun (aka: rifle):
The buyer lives 100mi away from the seller but in the same state. The buyer has made clear, in electronic correspondence, that he wants to use a close relative, who lives closer to the buyer, as the individual to fill out the bill-of-sale, show proof of legal state residence(NC), and pay the seller on his behalf. The buyer (not the relative) offered to fax copies of his NCDL and CCW.
The seller has his reservations b/c this may fall under a "straw purchase" situation.
- does this falls under the realm of a straw-purchase?
