    As long as it's legal where they live, I don't see why not :dunno:

    § 478.29 Out-of-State acquisition of firearms by nonlicensees.

    No person, other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector, shall transport into or receive in the State where the person resides (or if a corporation or other business entity, where it maintains a place of business) any firearm purchased or otherwise obtained by such person outside that State: Provided, That the provisions of this section:

    (a) Shall not preclude any person who lawfully acquires a firearm by bequest or intestate succession in a State other than his State of residence from transporting the firearm into or receiving it in that State, if it is lawful for such person to purchase or possess such firearm in that State,

    (b) Shall not apply to the transportation or receipt of a rifle or shotgun obtained from a licensed manufacturer, licensed importer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector in a State other than the transferee's State of residence in an over-the-counter transaction at the licensee's premises obtained in conformity with the provisions of § 478.96(c) and

    (c) Shall not apply to the transportation or receipt of a firearm obtained in conformity with the provisions of §§ 478.30 and 478.97.


    So, you can FTF a rifle or shotgun, but not a handgun.

    Edit: I am a fucking ninja.

    Military FTW. I can buy guns in AZ because I am a resident and TX because I am stationed there. :bigthumb:

    youd have to ship to him or drive to an ffl in his state to do the transfer. i almost went through this trying to sell my ak pistol to a guy in AL but ended up selling it locally
