My wife and I are planning a move from NY (Nassau County) to either North or South Carolina next year. This is going to be a permanent retirement move. I currently have several shotguns and rifles that are not registered in any way. The county that I currently live in does not require registration of long guns - yet. I also own two registered and licensed hand guns. My county is extremely well regulated when it comes to hand guns.
My question is this - is it legal for me to package up my long guns with the rest of our home furnishings and move them with the rest of our possessions or do they have to be sent thru an FFL as in an interstate sale.
Am I correct in assuming that the only way to transfer my hand guns from one state to another would be thru FFLs at both ends.
I am also looking for information regarding particular handgun licensing requirements in both Brunswick County, North Carolina and Horry County, South Carolina.
TIA for any advice - TomF
