    Oregon Trip

    I'm going to be flying to Oregon towards the end of this month, I have a friend that lives out there and he has ton's of guns.

    My question is this, Since I'm CCW in Oklahoma and Oregon doesn't recognize our CCW in there state, would I be able to bring a gun back with me from that state?

    I'm hoping to talk him into giving me (GUN) one since we know each other since we were 6 yrs old.

    You didn't specify longgun or handgun, but if it's the latter, the answer is no.

    A handgun would have to be transferred from an OR FFL dealer to an OK FFL dealer. You would take possession from the OK dealer, fill out the form 4473 and pass the NICS check, plus pay any fees the dealers may charge for the use of their licenses.

    I don't know if your Oregon friend can legally give you, an Oklahoma resident, a longgun as a gift.

    Is this true? Couldn't he just go to a gun shop in OR, transfer the ownership, then check it as baggage (in proper container, declared, etc.)?

    To OP: AFAIK, the CCW only pertains to carry status, not ownership*. So you couldn't *carry* in OR.

    * Although at least here in WA, a valid state CCW will allow you to avoid a waiting period when purchasing new. At least this was the case when I last purchased.

    The answer is yes, it is true, and no, he couldn't just go to a gun shop in OR and transfer ownership.

    As an OK resident, under Federal law he cannot legally buy, receive, or otherwise take possession of a handgun in OR to take back to OK.

    To be a legal transaction, it must be handled by an FFL on both ends.

    That stinks.. what if I was to bring the Tactitcal Shot Gun in pieces? would that matter?

    Do this rules also apply to someone that is going to another state and hunt? do you have to get some special permit?

    Thanks.

    Huh. I didn't know you could transfer to an out of state resident.

    Weird.

    Do you know what the reasoning behind this is?

    I think this is only about the transfer of ownership. If you legally own the weapon, legally transport the weapon to the state, and abide by all the laws and rules in the state* (including whatever hunting permits you might need), you should be OK.

    (watch me be wrong on this one too!)

    * Note firearms laws vary wildly between states, so you need to do your homework.

    I'm not clear what you are referring to, but keep each item separate:

    Transfer of ownership is one thing, transportation of *your* firearm to another state is another, CCW *carry* in the state you are visiting is another, hunting is another.

    So, according to CC, #1 is 'no', #2 might be OK, #3 is 'no' (according to your post), #4 might be OK.

    In terms of *how* you transport your firearm it depends on how you are travelling. If by air, this is allowed, simply follow the TSA rules AND the rules of the specific airlines you are taking.

    Yes, you can, but the transaction must be handled by a licensed dealer.

    Doesn't have to be a reason. It's Federal law.

    Nope, you are correct.

    Let me ask a question here. A friend of mine is coming to visit from California, I live in Idaho, could he give me a gun that he brought with him?

    You mean to tell me that even to GIVE as a gift, with no money exchange, it still has to be transfered through an FFL? Sounds like gun registration to me!
    "Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.

    A longgun, yes. Handgun, no.

    One more time, a gift of a handgun must be transferred through an FFL if the gifter and receiver are residents of a different state. If both gift giver and gift receiver are residents of the same state, then an FFL does not need to be involved.

    Why didn't you say this in the first place? It would have saved a lot of typing and bandwidth. A gift of a shotgun from your friend would be perfectly legal. No FFL needs to be involved.
