A North Carolina firearm bill of sale is a receipt for the private purchase of a gun that is executed by the buyer and the seller. Once it has been filled out, the document includes the purchase price, serial number, make, model, and caliber/gauge of the firearm, as well as the contact information for each party. To privately purchase a firearm in the state, the buyer must be over eighteen (18) years old and present a North Carolina driver’s license or state I.D. to the seller. When buying a handgun, a pistol purchase or a concealed handgun permit must also be presented. These permits are obtained from the county sheriff in the buyer’s place of residence and require a background check.
