This thought occured to me. I understand that when buying a gun out of state, the dealer or selling in your non-home state would have to ship through an FFL in your home state, and whatnot, in order to make the transaction legal. But what if you are gifted a gun, say, for christmas, by a relative who lives in a different state? Do you need to transfer it through an FFL? Im just wondering how it works, and It got me thinking...especially if both states dont have registration of rifles. So, say i leave my home, go and get a gun for christmas in a state that doesnt have registration, then how would I get it back to my state? Does it have to be shipped to an FFL? I'm not saying this is right, but essentially...neither state would know about the gun belonging to anyone, theres no record of transfer or anything, and it doesnt need to be registered. Seems like I could just take it with me and that's that. So, what would be the propor procedure?
