    What do I need to do if I find a deal on a gun while on vacation? Assuming the firearm is legal in my home state and I meet the purchase requirements for the state I am in. I can just buy the long gun and bring it home?

    The handguns would need to go to an ffl correct?

    A person may only acquire a firearm within the person’s own State, except that he or she may purchase or otherwise acquire a rifle or shotgun, in person, at a licensee's premises in any State, provided the sale complies with State laws applicable in the State of sale and the State where the purchaser resides. A person may borrow or rent a firearm in any State for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes.

    Where is that from?

    About a year or so here, an Oregon resident got busted selling a couple rifles to a fed or cop, I can't remember, with a Washington driver's license. Perhaps it's just a state law :dunno:

    I'd have to dig to find the law but I believe the key is buying a long gun from a FFL out of state, not a resident. Legal or not expect most FFLs to not know the law well and/or want to cover their butt and to send to your local FFL.

    Also bring a few copies of your C&R just in case.

    LA. State, not City.
    pretty sure if seller and buyer are residents of different states, you have ot use an ffl to transfer.

    do you know any dealers in your state? im sure if you wanted to you could ask whoever (the out of state dealer) runs the place to ship it to the dealer you know. that should make it legal.

    Should be fine provided that state doesn't have dumb rules for C&R and the seller knows about the C&R, which isn't a sure thing.
