West Virginia Firearm Bill of Sale Form

A West Virginia firearm bill of sale is a useful document for recording the sale or trade of a firearm from a private seller to a buyer. Private sales do not require background checks, nor does the buyer need a permit to purchase a firearm in the state. Completing a bill of sale can help the parties keep a record of the transaction in case either party needs proof of sale or purchase. The bill of sale includes information on the buyer, the seller, and the firearm, i.e., the make, model, caliber, serial number, and sale price (or items traded). By signing the bill of sale, the parties declare that they are legally permitted to possess a firearm in the state of West Virginia.

Concealed Carry Laws

Statute§ 61-7-3, § 61-7-4, § 61-7-4a and § 61-7-6

Any resident over the age of twenty-one (21) can carry a concealed handgun as long as they are not prohibited from possessing a firearm in accordance with § 61-7-7. A license to carry a concealed handgun can be obtained if the individual intends on carrying a handgun in other states (list of states which recognize the West Virginia CHL). Individuals ages eighteen (18) to twenty (20) may only carry a concealed handgun if they have applied for a provisional concealed pistol/revolver license. The application processes and requirements are essentially the same for both the standard and provisional license. West Virginia is a shall issue state; as long as the applicant passes the background check, the state will issue them a license. Individuals intent on applying for their concealed carry license may do so by following the steps below.
