Oregon Private Sales to In-law?

What's the legality of selling firearms to an in-law. My brother in law is looking to buy my compact handgun but since he isn't immediate family I'm not sure if the rule applies.

What about a friend? I know if they do the background check its legal but do I need to use an FFL to transfer

there are no exceptions for in-laws or friends, you must go thru an FFL to sell your gun. You can look up the law SB941 for details.

Just checked the statutes, and I agree. The OP has his answer.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
