For Boats

A new boat, depending on its length, needs to be registered within 72 hours of purchase in the state of Alabama. If you buy a boat that was previously registered by another owner, you have 15 days to do the transfer of ownership. To do so, the standard signed boat bill of sale will be sufficient as the purchase evidence.

For Firearms

In Alabama, there is no requirement to register a firearm, nor do you need special permission to buy a gun (Alabama Code 13A-11-85). You may, however, need to apply for a concealed weapon permit, which is normally done at the Sheriff’s office in the county where you live. Only Alabama residents are eligible to apply for such a permit.
