    Gun Shows in MI

    I am a Florida resident (FL drivers license) currently living in Grand Rapids, MI, and attending law school in MI. My question is: can I buy a shotgun at a MI gun show?

    I ask this because a gun show dealer refused to sell to me, but at another gun show, my roommate (who is from Vermont with a drivers license from VT) was able to buy a shotgun at another gun show in MI.

    Thank You,
    OJF

    Could this be because his may have been from a non FFL and yours from a FFL? Big difference here is who can sell what to whom....

    It depends on what state you are from and if the seller has a FFL. If he does not, the simple answer is no. If yes, there are states that he can sell to, and states that he cannot sell to if you show up in person. If you look at most Wallmart sporting goods counters, they have a nice state map chart showing this federal info.

    Thank you for your responses.

    My roommate told he would sell me his shotgun. Does anyone of the legalities behind this sale? Do we have to go through some dealer to legally make the transfer?
