    Question on handgun sale.

    If a person is in a different state visiting a friend. Said friend likes said person's handgun and wants to buy it. Friend isn't a criminal, firearm is legal in said state, no checks required, etc. Could that person sell their handgun to said friend while in friends state?

    I do not think it's legal. I'm having a discussion with a friend about it. He thinks it is. Am I right or is he?

    Not a lawyer but no, it would have to be shipped to an ffl in his state then a 4473 filled out to be done legally if he is not a resident of Indiana. No private sales of firearms across state lines. The interstate Commerce Act is used to uphold this. That's my understanding atleast.

    I had something similar happen to myself. Wanted to buy a friend's firearm but by law he had to return to his home state and then ship it to an FFL here, which we did since being legal is more fun than watching AT and unconstitutional F destroy my windows and doors. Silly, yes but you never know who is listening...

    Questions:

    Does the same FFL transfer rule apply to a rifle sale across state lines?

    So say the friend is an Ohio resident and the seller is an Indiana resident, can the seller drive to an Ohio FFL and hand the handgun to the FFL in Ohio who then completes the transfer with a 4473?

    Assuming I read this correct (seller is out-of-state, buyer is in-state), you need to head over to a nearby LGS in that state to get a transfer done.

    Yes, It's the same as if you just mailed it. How it gets there is somewhat moot.


    If it's a long gun, the dealer can be here (ie seller's home state), but for a handgun, it must be in the buyer's state.




    Remember, if state lines are involved, then so must a FFL holder.

    Who told you this? Do you have some laws to back this up?



    Either I'm wrong, or you're wrong...


    I fail to see the difference if the firearm is delivered to dealer by a man in a brown uniform acting on your behalf, or by you in cargo shorts and a T-shirt.

    Yes. Find in the law where it lists who must deliver it. There is no difference between USPS/Fedex/UPS/[insert freight company here]/ or somebody who is not the buyer acting as a courier to get it to the buyer's FFL in they eyes of the ATF. My understanding is the only restrictions are by the carriers as to how they can ship. (USPS must be between FFLs, UPS must be next day service, etc)
