    Go on websites like Gunbroker.com, Gunsamerica.com... everything is selling and buying from different states. To sell or buy a gun from a different state it has to be transfered through an FFl dealer (gun shop, private FFL holder).

    A lot of people do not want to sell out of state because it is extra work and money.
