ok here's a curious question....since i just found out it's illegal to do a private sale since the seller and i live in different states...is it legal or possible for us to meet a FFL in either state and conduct the sale in person through the local FLL? like him and i met at a gun shop in VA and he hands? sells? the gun to the gun shop and i get the background check done at the gun shop and they give me the gun? is something like that legal? or even do-able?

It does not matter how the gun arrives at an FFL in YOUR state. This would have to be done in your state of residence. The best thing to do would be to find out if your FFL will receive guns from private individuals.

+1 on this.

Although it's perfectly legal for them to do so, many FFLs will not accept guns from private individuals...

Not to jack your thread, but i've been thinking about giving a pistol to my nephew when i visit him in a neighboring state. I now wonder if that would violate any similar restrictions?

This advice is correct, but a bit misleading. Buying a weapon as an FFL from an out of state individual takes some "good faith". If the weapon is in any way, shape or form "hot" ( stolen, has been used in any sort of crime, doesn't belong to that particular family member ) then the FFL is putting themselves at risk, even if a buyer is all lined up to pay them more than they buy it for.

Two years down the road this gun gets resold, through another FFL, and it turns out to be evidence of some sort, tracking it back would not be hard as I doubt the OP is going to do hard time when he can point the law towards the shop he bought it from.

In that case, since the FFL was responsible for buying and selling "stolen or material" evidence, they can face SERIOUS repercussions, not the least of which is losing their FFL status.

It is just plain easier & cleaner to submit the weapon to an FFL in the seller's state and have them send it to an FFL in the buyer's state.

In a private sale that I did recently, I paid the FFL cost on this end ( to ship ) and the buyer paid the FFL cost on his end to take possession of the weapon.

'gello - I have purchased a weapon in Washington State and sent it, as a gift, to a family member in another state without any hassle.

You can also send a weapon to any manufacturer you want inside the US without going through an FFL.

I would definitely research the laws in your area, but we did not have to do an FFL transfer for a gift.
