    I was reading about transfers in Vancouver, WA. I was wondering how someone said they had guns shipped to Oregon to save the sales tax ? Do you have to have a connection with an FFL in Oregon ? I seen the name coctail as a contact. Is he in Oregon or Washington, and if in Oregon, is it legal for him to transfer the firearm to someone in Washington ? If in Washington, what is the Oregon connection ? Thanks !!:)

    Notice the long gun slung over the teachers shoulder?

    Any handgun HAS to be shipped to an FFL in your home state so you pay the sales/use tax. A long gun can be shipped to an FFL in Oregon and picked up there if you can find one to do it.

    Cocktailer is licensed in both WA and OR. He can pick a handgun up in OR and bring it with him, but he still has to charge the WA use/sales tax on a handgun.

    It is legal to buy long guns in most of the western states except calif. I have purchased rifles in Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming. A regular purchase. Pay, instant background check and leave with the rifle. Pistols can be purchased but must be shipped to an FFL in your home state. It's probably less expensive to go to Portland and buy your rifle or shotgun and save the shipping charge plus get to inspect the gun before purchase. There are good prices and a lot of choices in Portland.
    I bought quite a few SKS rifles at great prices while traveling and sold the for a profit at gun shows.

    Appears that you are on the fringes of the FFL requirements.

    does this apply to lowers, or just complete rifles?

    I will get one if they require it. I had one before but didn't renew because we sold the store.
