Gun laws? buying with out of state ID?

Postby archy » Mon Dec 19, 2011 2:03 pm

ok there seems to be a confusion, even between gun stores..Im in florida 3-6 months out of every year visiting mom, i am 25 and a permanent president of Indiana. In florida now and i have been in the market for a new shotgun or rifle, i know i cant buy a handgun in florida without being a resident here for 90 days. as i been browsing around gun shops in my area, one place tells me i CAN buy a long gun (shotgun, rifle) and the one i just left tonight says i CANNOT. which is accurate? i have been browsing but cannot find my specific answer. in online searches, either that or im just not understanding. please help

Note: i am not a dual resident. Just the average joe that wants a new hunting shotgun/rifle for christmas :)

Federal law says you can buy a long gun anywhere. As you stated and the idiot poster ignored, it's only handguns that require a state residency. States have their own laws. Like, some states say the dealer can only sell long rifles to state residents whose state borders theirs. I think Florida is one of them. I used internet dealers to buy two of mine. One shotgun and one pistol from a great east coast internet sites,. You only pay a FFL transfer fee of about $35 to a dealer near your home plus shipping and get good deals. You also don't have to worry about airlines.

If Florida is one of those states, then yes. You might have had a guy who didn't know ask specifically about the neighbor state rules.

@ Kyle Davis: If you didn't like CW's answer then why you picked him Best Answer with a 4/5 rating?

You might get better answers at the Yahoo Hunting site. At least they know gun laws.

Since you're a permanent resident of Indiana, you'd be far better off buying your handgun in Indiana.

You cannot buy a firearm without valid in state iD.
