Is it necessary to get a hand gun bought from an individual registered in your name in Texas. Both parties live in Texas

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I think in the sellers name.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am 79 and have had a CHL for many years. I don't know the sellers name, my son in law purchased it for me.

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

,

No, private sales of handguns in TX do not require any type of re-registration from the time that the firearm was originally sold through a FFL dealer.

.

In the state of Texas you do not have to transfer ownership of the firearm via a dealer, nor do you have to have the firearm re-registered as there is no such firearms registration in the state of Texas.

A seller's only obligation is to reasonably assume that the purchaser is a Texas resident and legally able to own and possess the firearm. Often times people will request a Texas Drivers License to ensure they are a state resident, write a bill of sale, and sometimes take information from the purchaser. All of these are not required, but to some, are good practice to ensure the seller is performing their duty properly.

thanks

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
