    This law goes against what I previously thought. It sounds like I can legally go to any neighboring state and purchase a firearm FTF and bring it back into Oregon without a local dealer taking into his inventory.

    So...is this the same for our neighboring states? Do they NOT have Contiguous state laws? Is this why I can only sell to Oregon Residents?

    haha, it was on my mind the other day but I didn't remember actually making the thread. I usually post when I get a minute at the office. In my 10 years of forum experience I've posted in wrong sections, swore on forums that dont allow it, thread hijacked, and just about every other forum fauxpas there is, but this is the first time Ive made this mistake. :laugh:
