    What's the procedure for walking into a store and purchasing a shotgun? Does having a CPL help?

    Can a shotgun be purchased online or across state lines?

    procedure - walk in, buy it, walk out. CPL makes no difference in shotgun purchase.

    You can buy out of state or online but that requires an FFL or two be involved.

    Anything that would fall into the "Long Gun" category you do not need a CPL for. That would include hunting rifles, shotguns, AR's, AK's etc. You walk out with it the same day.

    CPL's are useful for negating the pistol waiting period. Like stated above walk in, pay, walk out.

    A CPL does not guarantee you can take home a pistol the same day you buy it. You are also not guaranteed to take home a long gun the day you buy it. You may be the subject of a random check by NCIS that can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few days. However without a concealed pistol license you will under go an up to five day waiting period while your local law enforcement does a background check on you. Long guns such as rifles and pistols do not require a concealed pistol license as stated above. The NCIS check is also run on long guns and it too can be delayed for an unspecified period. The NCIS is a federal check and the Concealed Carry License or paper work if you do not have a license is a state requirement. Purchase of a pistol requires passing both in some manner and a long gun requires passing only the federal portion.
