Utah Firearm (Gun) Bill of Sale Form


The Utah firearm (gun) bill of sale form is a comprehensive material record of an agreement incorporating the information on the transfer of a firearm for an assumed monetary amount. The primary function of the form is to state the critical elements of the sale such as the seller, purchaser, and gun information, along with contract terms, disclosure statements, and endorsements. The contract can be used for ownership identification and support accurate transfer date.

How to Register a Gun

Governance of firearms and provisions of the state code does not require an individual to furnish a permit to purchase a gun nor does a gun require registration upon purchase. A person must be at least 18 years of age to buy a gun and if purchased from a dealer will mandate a standard background check for a one-time fee of $7.50. Should an individual purchase a used gun through a private sale, it shall warrant no such background check. Open carry of a long gun is sanctioned without a license, although carrying a handgun (open carry or concealed carry) will require an actively concealed carry permit. This license can additionally come in handy if traveling outside of state boundaries, as many states recognize the reciprocity of the permit.
