Arizona Firearm Bill of Sale Form

Updated October 16, 2023

An Arizona firearm bill of sale is a document used by the owner of a firearm to legally sell or trade the firearm to another individual or party. In Arizona, purchasers and owners of firearms are not legally required to obtain a license or permit to carry a concealed weapon. The only reason a resident of Arizona would need to apply for a concealed weapons permit would be to operate the weapon in another state that requires the permit.
