As the Irishman above me just said- you may not purchase a handgun except in your state of residence (note- some folks have more than 1 state of residence).
Translation- you cannot buy and take delivery of a handgun in another state unless you have a FFL. It will need to be shipped to a FFL holder in YOUR home state for transfer to you. Federal law. 18 USC 922. Rifles and shotguns are different.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
About where in Florida are you? If in the panhandle, maybe I can assist.
I live in Bay County but am currently living in Mississippi for the summer. I have a Glock 30 and can carry it comfortably walking around but its a pain when sitting down. I am looking into getting a smaller possibly a .40 cal for a concealed carry.
I am a Florida resident with my concealed carry license. Can I purchase a handgun in Mississippi I have been told yes and no? Any help?
Hope this helps but you would first have to purchase your firearm from a licensed dealer. The dealer shall record your info no matter what state you reside from. Your concealed permit to carry a handgun on your person and/or in your vehicle is perfect to transport your weapon back to Florida. Keep in mind that some dealers are NOT registered within the state to sell weapons and that would be the only reason why you would need a dealer (FFL) to receive the weapon for you. Ultimately, you can purchase a weapon in Mississippi even if you're from Florida. Your permit for concealed weapon carrying is valid and honored in Mississippi and Alabama (forgot this state too didn't ya?). Good luck with your purchase!
