    Sorry for what may be an old question, but my quick search found conflicting information..

    Can I, as a WA resident buy a long gun from an OR FFL dealer- and take possession in OR? In other words, take delivery over the counter?

    Thanks.

    Yep,
    Unless things have changed. I live in Washington and bought a shotgun from Keith's in Gresham, Oregon. Took it home after the "Background Check" the same day.

    Nothing's changed. Buy the gun, BG check, take it home. That simple.

    Thanks!

    Last rookie question: Is this the standard federal -quick phone call- BGC or is there an Oregon specific one?

    The problem with buying a firearm far from home is that a background check is not always an instant reply and if you get a delay you are looking at returning a day or days later to pick up your purchase. I once had to drive six hours round trip plus gas and ferry to pick up a pistol with one day delay. It can really suck.

    true, it's a 50/50 chance. depends on how far, sometimes you can end up paying more than you wanted with 2 trips.

    TCOV,I get delayed about every 4th,5th time,I never buy anything out side of Sequim/PA unless at a show.Then not at a dealer
    I did buy a shotgun (SBEII) at the Post Falls Cabella's a few years back. Luckily,no delay that trip

    I got ran out of a chain gun store with my Texas license for trying to commit "Interstate Commerce" by purchasing a shotgun.

    Not really impressed by their intelligence on that one.

    call me ignorant, but what is wrong with the purchase from another state? If you go through the same BKG checks, whats the issue? Its not like they do a local, what kind of citizen are you check.

    I understand its current law, but just don't see any practical purpose for it. Its still passing federal requirements, not state. So there is relatively no difference. Certain states with extrenious rules, maybe.

    No problems from a ffl on a long gun. Pistols have to be shipped and don't buy privately from a guy in Oregon unless you go to an ffl. I know tax is a pain but try to support out local gun guys. -- bright water ventures is my number one.
