    Hi,

    I'm new to this forum - I searched but didn't find the answer to my question, so my apologies if this topic has already been addressed.

    I am a British citizen legally residing in the US, in Bend Oregon to be specific. I do not have a green card, but I have a work visa that is renewed every three years.

    I would like to purchase two guns - a 22 rifle for small game hunting and a small handgun.

    There is a lot of conflicting information on the web; can anyone point me in the right direction where I can find exactly what I need to do? So far it seems a foreign citizen resident in Oregon must obtain a hunting permit in order to purchase a firearm.

    Thanks is advance for any advice you may have.

    I have a buddy who lives in Vancouver and has purchased several firearms legally thru a FFL dealer. He is a Canadian citizen. AR-15 , handguns, As for the specifics of the law I don't know.
