    The only gray area as I am told by an FFL holder here is the 'pistol grip shotgun' because of the new 4473 that is being used.

    1. The pistol grip shotgun is not a grey area, and the new 4473 has nothing to do with it. If the pistol grip is installed on the shotgun, it must be sold as a handgun. If the pistol grip is not installed, then it is a firearm accessory.

    2. All of the states' "contiguous states allowed" laws now mean "any state allowed". August 2004 FFL newsletter published by BATFE:

    CONTIGUOUS STATE – PART 2
    In an article that appeared in the December 2002
    edition of the FFL Newsletter, we advised FFLs
    that the “contiguous state” provisions of the Gun
    Control Act were amended in 1986, and that the
    GCA allows dealers to sell or dispose of a long
    gun to a resident of another state provided, (1) the
    purchaser was not otherwise prohibited from
    receiving or possessing a firearm under the GCA,
    and ( 2) the sale, delivery and receipt fully comply
    with the legal conditions of sale in the buyer’s and
    seller’s States.
    The condition of sale relating to compliance with
    the applicable laws of both States cited above
    continues to cause confusion among dealers,
    particularly among those dealers who conduct
    business in a State whose laws presently contain
    language that allows “contiguous state” sales.
    Historically, prior to the 1986 amendments to the
    GCA, many States enacted provisions in their laws
    that allowed their residents to acquire a long gun in
    a contiguous State. For the most part, these State
    law provisions were modeled after the contiguous
    state provisions of the GCA. However, even
    though the GCA was amended in 1986 to allow
    the sale of long guns to residents of any State
    pursuant to the conditions cited above, many States
    have not yet amended their laws to reflect similar
    language. ATF takes the position that if the laws
    of a given State allow its residents to acquire a long
    gun in a contiguous State, those laws also allow its
    residents to acquire a long gun in any other State
    where the laws of that State permit such
    transactions, unless the language contained in that
    State’s law expressly prohibits it residents from
    acquiring a firearm outside that State. Questions
    regarding particular State law provisions should be
    referred to your local ATF office.
