    Selling a gun out of state

    I live in Arkansas, and have a friend in TN that would like to purchase a long gun from me. Since it is across state lines, do I have to go through a FFL?? I know that you do with handguns, not sure about long guns.

    Thanks for any info.

    Hi! Long time no see!

    Same deal for both to be legal. FFL - to - FFL.

    Is that true with personal sales of long guns? I know it is if you ship it, but I mean what if they met in person? Would that be a way to do it without ffl and be legal? Just askin' 'cause I don't know.

    Cool

    A nonlicensee may not transfer any firearm to a nonlicensed resident of another state.

    Thanks for the links. It was going to be a FTF, but won't now. I kind of thought it would need to go FFL, but wasn't sure.

    P95, I check in just about daily and read, I'm just not one of the highest board posters.

    There only needs to be one FFL involved if your friend comes to Arkansas. In Arkansas it is legal for a FFL to transfer a long gun to a resident of an adjacent state. (Arkansas Code 5-73-125) You can take the long gun to the FFL and your friend can fill out the 4473. The FFL can do the NICS background check and even though your friend's state of residence is listed as Tennessee as long as the type of transfer is long gun it can be done. Provided that there are no other problems on the 4473.

    Federal regulations allow long guns to be transferred by FFLs to residents of other states provided the laws of the state in which the FFL does business allow it and the laws of the state in which the purchaser resides allow it. [Title 27 CFR Chapter II Part 478.96 (c) (1)]

    (c)(1) A licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer may sell or deliver a rifle or shotgun, and a licensed collector may sell or deliver a rifle or shotgun that is a curio or relic to a nonlicensed resident of a State other than the State in which the licensee’s place of business is located if—
    (i) The purchaser meets with the licensee in person at the licensee’s premises to accomplish the transfer, sale, and delivery of the rifle or shotgun;
    (ii) The licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer complies with the provisions of § 478.102;
    (iii) The purchaser furnishes to the licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer the firearms transaction record, Form 4473, required by § 478.124; and
    (iv) The sale, delivery, and receipt of the rifle or shotgun fully comply with the legal conditions of sale in both such States.
    Good luck.

    Good luck.
