    If I want to buy a gun from one of you guys in Oregon do I have to use a FFL we are talking private sale here ? Is it diff. for each state or the same everywhere ? Is it different for rifle or pistol ? Does anyone have a link to the RCW or law , code what ever its called ?

    Pistols should go thru an FFL.

    Long guns are fine FTF since Oregon is a "no register" state when it comes to rifles/shotties.

    NO FTF SALES TO OUT OF STATERS - It's your trip to federal prison if you get busted for this, so your choice...



    For interstate private sales you're going to have to to through an FFL...


    Rifles can be purchased by you from an Oregon FFL and taken home

    Pistols would have to be shipped to a WA FFL


    (I know this is how it works buying guns from WA here in OR, so... yeah)


    I am not a lawyer, and did not stay in a holiday inn express last night, so... ymmv.

    It's a no-no & a particularly horrible gun law...

    I tried wading through a bunch of government webiste junk, and I can't find the info on this, does anyone have the "letter of the law" so to speak?

    I've been looking for concrete answers to these questions also. I have spoken with a lot of gun enthusiast who have told me that private party transactions between residents are okay. It seems they are all mistaken.
    Here are some things I pulled off of the net.

    To whom may an unlicensed person transfer firearms under the GCA?

    A person may sell a firearm to an unlicensed resident of his State, if he does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the person is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law. A person may loan or rent a firearm to a resident of any State for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes, if he does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the person is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law. A person may sell or transfer a firearm to a licensee in any State. However, a firearm other than a curio or relic may not be transferred interstate to a licensed collector.

    [18 U.S.C. 922(a)(3) and (5), 922(d), 27 CFR 478.29 and 478.30]



    From whom may an unlicensed person acquire a firearm under the GCA?

    A person may only acquire a firearm within the person’s own State, except that he or she may purchase or otherwise acquire a rifle or shotgun, in person, at a licensee's premises in any State, provided the sale complies with State laws applicable in the State of sale and the State where the purchaser resides. A person may borrow or rent a firearm in any State for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes.

    [18 U.S.C. 922(a)(3) and (5), 922(b)(3), 27 CFR 478.29 and 478.30]



    May an unlicensed person obtain a firearm from an out-of-State source if the person arranges to obtain the firearm through a licensed dealer in the purchaser’s own State?

    A person not licensed under the GCA and not prohibited from acquiring firearms may purchase a firearm from an out-of-State source and obtain the firearm if an arrangement is made with a licensed dealer in the purchaser's State of residence for the purchaser to obtain the firearm from the dealer.

    [18 U.S.C. 922(a)(3) and 922(b)(3)]
