    According to this from the ATF. A C&R holder:
    Now, say I wanted to buy a C&R firearm from a seller (with or without a C&R license) in washington, while I reside in Oregon. According to the ATFs statement this seems perfectly legal. However, isn't it sort of illegal for them to sell it if they are not licensed? I'm a little confused and would rather stay in the right, but from what it seems, I could buy a C&R firearm anywhere, no problem, as that's the point of the C&R. Hoping someone can put me in line!

    No it is not sort of illegal. There is NOTHING sort of illegal. It is either legal or not.

    Why would the seller need to be licensed? Do you need a license to sell any other gun? If the answer was yes then only people with FFL's would be able to buy and sell firearms.

    YOU are a licensed buyer so you are able to buy wherever you are (assuming the firearm is C&R in your case).
