There is a rifle I 'wanted' to buy from a Seller in Northwest Areas. But the Seller is ignorant of the laws concerning selling / transfer across state lines. He is blissfully ignorant!!! Or I am being played like a fish on a line! I have sent him veriifable information with source notations and I have gotten nowhere... ----------------- A Seller in Oregon(or any other state) can sell a firearm to a resident in any state provided Seller follow simple legal guidlines. To a resident of his OWN state he should follow 'his' state's rules.....and not all Federal laws apply to his in state private transfer. A Seller in Oregon can sell his gun to me provided these laws are followed: A] ANY LEGAL FFL in my state can receive a firearms from a person*** living in another state. B] That person*** does not have to be a FFL holder!!! C] That person*** does not have to have to use an FFL holder to ship his gun to another FFL in an other state PERIOD! If ya wanna spend the extra money vs getting educated about the law...go ahead it's your money! D] LONG GUNS CAN BE SHIPPED via any carrier USPS INCLUDED. E] A NON-FFL HOLDER CAN NOT SHIP A HANDGUN VIA USPS but can use other carrier's: FED X, USP etc. This is not rocket science!
