The Arizona firearm (gun) bill of sale form is an instrument used to facilitate the transfer of a firearm from one person to another. Although it is not required to perform a background check during a private sale, it is advised that the seller exercises due diligence and verifies that the buyer is legally eligible to own a gun (in correspondence with § 13-3101). Upon the exchange of possession, the parties involved will insert the details of how the transaction will unfold and then sign the document in front of a notary public to secure a valid agreement.
How to Register a Gun
The process of registration is not enforced within the state of Arizona. All residents are given the right to carry a concealed firearm without any type of permit as long as they are 21 or older and are not a restricted person according to the law (18 and older to openly carry). Even though a permit is not required within Arizona, it is still obtainable for those who would like to capitalize on the reciprocity available in other states.
