Can anyone tell me how it would work if I buy a rifle from an individual priveatly in NY and I live in NJ also a private citizen?
Any help would be great.

The person you buy it from would have to take the rifle to a licensed FFL dealer and have it shipped to a licensed FFL dealer in NJ. There you would have to just show id and pay a fee.

I don't think it has to be shipped from a Licensed FFL but has to go to one??

ATF rules state that in a state to state transfer if must be shipped to an FFL dealer. The person shipping the firearm does not have to be a FFL dealer. There is nothing illegal about a person shipping a firearm to a FFL dealer in another state to tranfer to a resident of that state. however, some dealers will not accept any firearm unless it comes from a FFL holder. That just a dealer policy only not a legal issue. So have the person you are selling it to find a dealer that is ok with this.

Many FFL holders will not send a signed copy of their FFL to a non-license holder because of fraud. I will not give mine to an individual because of this. I'm not trying to be a dick, but it safeguards my livelyhood. BTW. Sometimes it is hard to get any of these shippers to send anything that resembles a gun. In most cases you will have to send it dealer to dealer because of that.

I take no offense that's why I asked for advice.

Have you gone for the NJ Firearms ID card? You should get that for less hassels. For an FFL in NJ purchase you need one and a DL usually.

In NY state, there is a state law, FFL can only accept and send firearms to and from known FFL holders.
