There have been several threads lately with good points and information about FTF firearm sales. I was talking with a friend about FTF sales, and the legality of it over state lines. We did not agree on whether or not the laws applied to all firearms, or to handguns only. I will not say which way I thought just in case I was wrong. :s0092::s0114:

All firearms transactions across state lines must be done through an FFL.

Regarding FFL purchases, you can purchase a long gun from a FFL in another state, and take it back to your state, but handguns must be purchased from an FFL in your home state.

The "adjoining state" thing has been gone for years.

From:
http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/faq2.htm#b2

(B2) From whom may an unlicensed person acquire a firearm under the GCA? [Back]

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.
