With the normal assumptions (legal ID, ability to pass an FFL background check, etc.) in what states may out-of-state buyers purchase firearms from directly from a licensed FFL dealer?
I was in North Carolina last summer and ran into a "no" from a dealer on a good specimen that I had been interested in.
I know that it is possible to have an FFL in one state send a gun to an FFL in another state, but that doubles the fees that these fine folks necessarily have to charge for their work to comply with the Federal regulatory overhead.
- Are there any states where direct sales to non-residents is legal and normal?
- Does anyone maintain a state-by-state list of where this might be acceptable? (and perhaps make it available on the web?)
