A New Hampshire firearm bill of sale is a signed sales receipt for a gun that was bought in a private transaction. The document must be signed by both the buyer and the seller, and notarization is recommended. Once the form has been completed and signed by both parties, the weapon will be considered sold and to have transferred ownership. State laws are extremely relaxed regarding firearms. Residents and non-residents alike can legally open or concealed carry guns without a license or permit. Furthermore, there is no restriction on the age at which individuals can carry firearms.

Concealed Carry Laws
Statute – § 159:6
New Hampshire is a “constitutional carry state,” which means that guns can be carried in the open or concealed without a permit. Individuals can apply for a license to carry a concealed handgun by submitting a Pistol/Revolver License application/renewal form (Resident/Non-Resident). For residents, the form must be submitted to their local policing department; non-residents must submit the application to the state police.
