    Ok riddle me this, you can't buy a gun FTF if your not from the state the gun is in, but can a seller drive to a gun show that's 15 minutes away in another state and sell his rifle?

    I live 15 or 20 minutes from the spokane gun show and was thinking of taking my AR there to sell but is it legal?

    NO! It would have to go thru a dealer/FFL.

    Might be worth it to reach a bigger group, paying the transfer and such isn't all that exspensive.

    Just have the buyer pay the fee or if you are generous split it with him.. Maybe call around spokane or check buds/gallery for a "cheap" FFL, there are guys that do it for $20-25 if you look around.. Then call that FFL or have the buyer call him and arrange things..

    Or sell it to a dealer at the show.

    If sold in WA the FFL is required to collect state sales or use tax on the value of the gun. WAC is running into this at their shows and it caused quite an uproar among the vendors.

    To lower the tax burden you can do a 2 part transaction - sell them the upper for 90% of the cost and the lower for say $100 through the FFL - save them some of the taxes.
