KF I would be willing to bet your dad traded numerous guns over the years. Perhaps many with just a hand shake.

You didn't need any type of paperwork at all, unless selling it, in the good old days in Washington State. Bill of sale was all you needed in years before, if I remember correctly.

Didn't even need that, that was just CYA in case someone did something stupid with a gun you once owned.


I meant business to private party. I remember doing paperwork, bill of sale on my Colt Python.
I could care less about what anybody says..............

:dunno: i thought that in order for a dealer to sell it they have to have the paper for where it came from.Just like any broker or pawn shop.

What is the definition of dealer you are using.
dealer:someone that is selling as a business.If its a private seller then different i guess.It still will hold the seller liable whether there is paper work or not.,If the op can prove it is his then the seller is in posession of stolen property.Also trafficking stolen property.

Thanks for all of the input!

I didn't want to update until I had the pistol in hand.

Little backstory first...just to clarify a few things.

This gun was taken about 8 years ago long before 594, by an employee of a storage company I was using.
He was an older guy.. I had met once. fired a long time ago..

I saw the ad for the handgun online...a total fluke that I spotted this gun..I immediately recognized it as the one that I had.

After a few emails back and forth over the holiday and a little online sleuthing by myself, I met the mid 20 something guy that had it.

Nice guy. fellow hunter, Wasn't a tweaker.

I bought the gun back. Didn't ask questions. All I could have said was, how or where did you get this? Would it have mattered?

Didn't report to the police as I had no proof that it had been mine. I had no idea how many times this gun had changed hands.
It IS antique by the way, 118-119 years old.

Didn't initially report because I hadn't known it was missing for quite some time..Not enough info on the gun etc.

Anyway, The gun is back in the family.

Thanks again !

Good to hear! 
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

Sarcasm: The ability to insult stupid people without them realizing it. 

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.
