Federal law restricts handgun transfers to your state of residence. If you buy a handgun out of state it would have to be shipped to a NYS FFL who also has NYS Handgun Dealer's License. If it's a new handgun it also has to have the fired shell casings from the manufacturer or the FFL has to have it CoBIS tested.

You should have no problem in transferring a long gun from an FFL in PA. In fact my local Wal*Mart has a big sign that lists about 35 states where residents can reside and and have a long gun transfered to them in NY. I know the BATFE has stated that unless a state specifically prohibits the transfer of a long gun then it is legal to do so. Apparently the Wal*Mart lawyers have decided that NY's contiguous state transfer law does not prohibit the transfers of long guns to residents of non-contiguous states.

August 2004 FFL NEWSLETTER
CONTIGUOUS STATE – PART 2

In an article that appeared in the December 2002
edition of the FFL Newsletter, we advised FFLs
that the “contiguous state” provisions of the Gun
Control Act were amended in 1986, and that the
GCA allows dealers to sell or dispose of a long
gun to a resident of another state provided, (1) the
purchaser was not otherwise prohibited from
receiving or possessing a firearm under the GCA,
and ( 2) the sale, delivery and receipt fully comply
with the legal conditions of sale in the buyer’s and
seller’s States.

The condition of sale relating to compliance with
the applicable laws of both States cited above
continues to cause confusion among dealers,
particularly among those dealers who conduct
business in a State whose laws presently contain
language that allows “contiguous state” sales.
Historically, prior to the 1986 amendments to the
GCA, many States enacted provisions in their laws
that allowed their residents to acquire a long gun in
a contiguous State. For the most part, these State
law provisions were modeled after the contiguous
state provisions of the GCA. However, even
though the GCA was amended in 1986 to allow
the sale of long guns to residents of any State
pursuant to the conditions cited above, many States
have not yet amended their laws to reflect similar
language. ATF takes the position that if the laws
of a given State allow its residents to acquire a long
gun in a contiguous State, those laws also allow its
residents to acquire a long gun in any other State
where the laws of that State permit such
transactions, unless the language contained in that
State’s law expressly prohibits it residents from
acquiring a firearm outside that State. Questions
regarding particular State law provisions should be
referred to your local ATF office.

Took my wife to a Cabelas in eastern South Dakots, just off I 90. She walkeed into the store, took a look around and sadi "Definitely a guy store." She was a real good sport about it though and didn't rush the procedings. I was looking a the pistols and the guy behind the counter asked me if he could help. I just said that I'm from New York. He just said, "I'm sorry." We chatted a few minutes and he left to help another customer. Got to love the aquariums they have.
