Too bad the OP's home state is strict on CCW's so he/she probably can't legally do this unless the transaction is done in his own home. I have the same issue in Maryland unfortunately. Also, a gun isn't going to do you any good if the cards simply DOA. As such, I personally would consider this deal too much of a hassle.
For things you can test as is you can always contact your local sheriff's office and request permission to do the transaction in the lobby. They may even agree to have a cop present. It all depends on how cool your local cops are though.
Anyhow, good luck and be safe OP.
