buy a hand gun out of Washington? Legal
There's always the "Clinton Gambit"....
It's only illegal if you get caught and then if you get caught...
...deny everything and then blame a "vast rightwing conspiracy"
Or, if you don't want to be do a Hillary...
...simply have their FFL ship it to an FFL near you for processing and pick-up.
Go to any gun shop in MOST any state and buy the gun.
Or get on line and do the same
Then have it shipped to the ffl of your choice, in your state
It goes on every minute of every day on sights like Gun Broker
If you're from Oregon and want to buy a handgun from Washington, then you can have the seller drive over the state line to Oregon and meet you at an Oregon FFL that agrees to do the transfer.
Or, if they're to far away to travel to you, then they can ship it to your designated FFL in Oregon and then when it arrives, you go and pick it up after you pass the background check.
Shipping a handgun through UPS or FedEx is not cheap as they require it to be shipped next day air.
Yup, just shipped a J frame Smith to Florida via FedEx, $35.00 2nd day plus $1.00 per hundred insurance..
You will be safe if you buy it from someone named George !
The only legal way to purchase a handgun when traveling out of state is to have it shipped to a Washington FFL, who will do the transfer. Either your private owner or his FFL need to ship it to your FFL. So if you see a really good deal when traveling, factor in FFL transfer costs at both ends, shipping costs, and WA sales tax when you return home and take delivery. That's going to add another $100 to your cost.
If it's a really nice collectable, then cost of all that may not mean much. I found a minty .455 Webley in Tulsa some years ago, and bought it, total cost was about $75 over normal value, but it was then and still is the nicest example I've seen.
Remember to ask the receiving FFL if they accept transfers from individuals not just FFLs
He's in Newberg Oregon, not Washington.
The question was how to get a handgun legally from WA. to OR.
Everything above still applies
Thanks guys. Every thing seems to be coming together.
