Gun Show Purchases
 
Okay, so I know this will seem about as silly of a question as possible, but I'm askin' anyway.

There is a gun show this weekend and I was thinking of going and possibly purchasing a firearm. My question is, how does that work? If I bought a pistol, is there a waiting period? How would I secure the pistol if the vendor is out of state? Will another FFL dealer hold it until I clear? I ask as I have never purchased from a gun show. Someone clue me in please.

you show up pay your money to get in pay for your gun, go buy ammo and walk out get in your car and go home or better to the range.

So there is no waiting period?

Shouldn't be in Florida. At most they will run your license through ncic and you'll be on your way in 5 mics. Hope you find a good deal!!

There is no waiting period IF you have a CCW license.

Really not a silly question at all...
Most firearm dealers except transfers for an extra fee.
So if you buy (without a permit) from an out-of-state dealer,
pick a dealer in your area that the firearm can be tranfered to.
After the waiting period you'll be able to pick-up your firearm at the local dealer you picked. Make sure you check on the amount of the transfer fee.

About 6 months ago I was with a friend at a gun show. He bought a shotgun from a dealer in Georgia. The Georgia dealer transfered it to a local dealer then my friend picked it up after the waiting period when he got off work.
FYI; his transfer fee was 50 bucks.
