Hey Everyone, I bought an AR on the internet from an individual this week in another state. Is trasnfer via UPS/Fedex to an FFL the only way to get the gun, or can I pick up the gun myself from the individual? If I can pick it up myself, how do you transfer ownership of the gun from the previous owner to the new owner? Is this doable, b/c it would save me about $75?

(hmmm, I'm thinkin' [:K]) Don't you think that it would have been best to work this out BEFORE you purchased?

If I were you I would contact the ATF and ask them. [whacko]

I agree you should have made arrangements first. Only legal way to do it is have it sent to your FFL. Make sure it is OK with him FIRST!

You should be able to purchase a long gun in another state (other than your state of residence) in person and take it home. Shipping it is a whole other matter. Jamie

Never heard of purchasing out of state and carrying back to resident state before. Is that new? Last I heard, it can only be shipped to FFL. Been to out of state shows where I've purchased a rifle, it was held until a copy of the FFL from home state was received, then shipped to dealer.
