So this deal got put on hold for a little bit, but now it's back on. The owner resides in GA, I live in VA, we are going to be in NC when I purchase the gun/work with him. So do I have to have him ship it to an FFL dealer or do I purchase it through him and take it to an FFL dealer to do paperwork? How does that work?
He has to deliver the gun to an FFL for transfer to you. A NC FFL may very well be able to do the transfer
, but they will probably tell you that an FFL transfer is not required because FFLs tend only to know the little bit of the law that their BATFE agents tell them and is just enough to keep them from legal troubles.
Nah. Has to be the transferee's home state, NLT.
Buyer home state FFL is the choke point.
I'll tell you what. I'll back my statement up with statute quotation and challenge you to back yours up with a statute quotation. My statute quotation is 18 USC 922(b)(3). What's yours?
If a VA FFL can accept the rifle FROM an out of state source, then what prevents a NC FFL from accepting the rifle FROM an out of state source?
Once the rifle is accepted by the FFL, what prevents the FFL from acting under the 18 USC 922(b)(3) exception to transfer it to a VA resident? Hmmmm?
