In Texas, can firearms be transferred or purchased between friends without any official documentation?

Texas has no licensing or registration to possess firearms (other than NFA firearms). You can give/sell a firearm just as you can with a TV, toaster, or another object. But according to Texas Law, you can not give/sell one to:
1 anyone younger than 18 (without parental/guardian consent)
2 anyone they know will use it for an illegal act
3 anyone who is intoxicated
4 anyone they know is a felon before 5 years after they have completed their punishment
5 anyone they know is under a protective order
