    Fire arm law question

    I looked at handgunlaw.us and could not find anything. Does anyone know the laws on buying a firearm in Utah as far as state residency? Do you have to be a reaident here to buy one from an ffl? Just wondering.

    Here is the NRA-ILA information.
    http://www.nraila.org/gun-laws/state-laws/utah.aspx


    This indicates "must show proof of Utah residency..." Rifle or shotgun: must abide by laws of your residence state.

    If you're military, just need a copy of your orders to Utah. I buy all of my guns at Get Some

    You have to be a resident to buy any gun from a private party or a handgun from a dealer. If the dealer's store policy is okay with it, non-residents can buy long guns from a dealer.
