Is 'Trading' Legally the Same as 'Selling?'

Recommended Posts

Bit of an odd one, but since it is illegal to sell a RIF what is the legal position on 'trading?'

 

If I were to swap a RIF with someone who had a RIF, in the full knowledge that they never played airsoft and never intended to, would this legally be considered the same as selling to them?

 

 

PS. I love you for helping me. Thanks very much. Hey, let's be friends! (I've been told I need to be friendlier when talking about legal issues).

Simple answer: yes, they're the same.

 

Long answer: When entering into a sale or trade, you're creating a contract. A contract is formed by two parties each paying the other 'consideration', this consideration can be any item of value to either party (there are other things that form a contract, but those aren't important).

 

So, in a normal sale, party A might offer a gun as consideration, and party B will offer currency. In a trade, the only difference is that party B changes what their consideration physically is to goods or services instead of currency.

 

Hope that makes sense...

Perfectly put Finius, thanks.

 

I assumed that was the case, but wasn't sure if effectively any goods or services provided for other goods or services is considered 'sale.'
