No. Indiana does not require the completion of a form for a private purchase nor do you have to route the transfer through a dealer. Recommend reviewing statutes in IC 35-47-2.5 which is the chapter regulating the sale of handguns in regards to a private sale or purchase. The department also recommends exchanging receipts to document the transfer. For more information on this topic visit ISP Firearms Licensing or contact us at FirearmsQuestions@isp.IN.gov
