Hello from NorCal. I am new to this site and looking to sell a pistol. After looking through a lot of threads I have noticed the term PPT. Private Party Transfer I assume? Would someone who is educated in the matter please explain to me the safest, "legal" way to sell a pistol to a buyer. Does the 30 day rule apply? Does the 10 day cooling period apply? Do I need to involve an FFL? Last thing I want is a pistol floating around with my name on it. Thanks for the help.

A PPT, or as you stated "Private Party Transfer", is a transfer of a firearm in which both the buyer and the seller are residents of California and are in the same physical location.

In most cases a firearm transfers must go through a licensed dealer. PPT's are exempt from both the roster and the 1-in-30 handgun limit. The gun must stay at the dealer for ten days, after which the seller will return and pick it up.

The maximum legal limit for a PPT is 35$. For the future remember what a PPT is. Getting a gun shipped from out of state is not a PPT, and the dealer can charge any amount.

Although there is some work on getting two people in different parts of the state do to a PPT, for now the buyer and the seller must show up in person.

There are some exemptions, such as a family transfer and others.
