    Unless you have a FFL or a C&R which is still an FFL you cannot order guns over the internet. These people are stupid! They probably go to budsgunshop.com and don't read the fine print, or ignore it. Because if you could there would be no need for a gun store. If you could I would be in debt hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    You can (I guess) but it would be illegal.

    I've wondered about that myself.It can't see any situation,where you would buy from internet,without a background ck.,legally anyway.(excluding the FTF sale).

    Gosh, we can buy guns on the internet without a background check? Why haven't I known this all along? How much easier would it be to buy a gun on the internet without a background check.

    Please point me to the right place, I'm ready.

    I guess they mean you can seek out a gun for sale on the internet, then arrange a face to face deal.

    If simply responding to an ad, it's little different than seeing that ad pasted on the local telephone pole or bulletin board. I'm pretty sure it's this simple: So long as the individuals are both private parties, and so long as the arms are sold in-state, no FFL or NICS check is required (unless state law requires it).

    If making the purchase via payment right there to a dealer of firearms, or if the arms are being sold across state lines, then it's required the transfer/shipment be via an FFL-brokered transaction.

    The talking heads are lumping in the situation where someone posts that they have a gun for sale and then meet face to face to actually sell the gun with all internet purchases to scare the uninformed.

    This is the only correct answer you've gotten so far! ^^^

    I bought a gun on the internet without a background check. However it was then sent to my FFL and I had to do the background check there. So by semantic reasoning, you can purchase one, but good luck getting your hands on it without that BGC.

    Most of the people talking about "buying guns on the internet" are completely ignorant of what that actually means. If you use Gunbroker or any other auction site, you have to ship to an FFL. If ordering from a manufacturer or dealer, you must ship to an FFL.

    When I think of buying something online, I think of clicking, putting in credit card info, and it is shipped to my house. I think it might be legal to find someone posting a classified on a board somewhere online and if in-state and not prohibited by the state, you can actually mail a long gun person to person with no FFL. Pistols are prohibited though. I don't remember where all the regs are that lead me to this conclusion, but that was my understanding. I would look into it some more before trying it though.

    So yes, I think there is one small avenue allowed, but as usual, they exagerate and mislead the public into thinking you can go to Cabela's website and get a machine gun shipped to your doorstep, no questions asked.

    I have had more than one person ask me about this and how shocked they were that everyone can just buy a gun (fully automatic as well) over the internet. When I tell them the facts, some do not believe me because "they saw it on the news." I am really getting too old for this stuff.
