If you go to California, they probably won't even let you look at it over the counter....
He's in Hawaii so he is pretty much screwed on the border state thing.

Haha, yea the internet is full of facts. Well, specifically, I went to the NRA-ILA site. It's says that "There are no state licensing requirements for the purchase of rifles or shotguns." for Seattle, but I guess that only means their state... So there'd be no way to get a shotgun then?... That suxxxx....
Are there gunshops near you in Hawaii? You can order a shotgun online and have it shipped to a licensed gun dealer (FFL) in your state as long as it is a legal firearm.

Guns for Sale

Well the thing is, Hawaii doesn't allow guns to be owned by people under the age of 21 (I'm only 20; turned this monday :P). I've only been allowed to shoot my uncle's guns at the shooting range, which I can't take across borders (unless he comes with me). This is why I am looking for a shotgun to buy for myself on the mainland (since I'm going to be there for a while anyway). Hmm.... Is it illegal to have a resident in the state to buy the gun, then give it to me?

That's illegal.

Just like the man said-it's a "straw purchase" and highly illegal.

Ah... All right, well I guess I'll have to settle with taking turns shooting my friend's shotgun (He told me that's not illegal). Thanks for the heads up and tips.
