Is he offering a copy of his Concealed Handgun Permit
If so, it's good to keep a copy of (and nice that he's bringing one), but you need to physically view the original, and verify that the copy and the original match, front and back, and verify that the name and address on the CHP match the name and address on his State-issued picture ID (e.g. driver's license) (and the picture matches the face of the buyer). You don't strictly need to keep a copy of the CHP, but you need to keep the numbers off of it forever, so a photocopy is a good idea.
