yes but they will have to ship to a VT FFL.
Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you want.

Not a handgun - at least, not in person. You can purchase a handgun from an out-of-state vendor, but the sale has to go through an FFL in your home state.

In addition NY requires a NY and only NY permit to touch a gun. Gander can't even let you touch it too look at it as a VT resident in NY.

I believe you can purchase a long gun directly in NY STATE with no permit or anything. As long as you are legally allowed to posses one in your home state.

A pistol however will have to be shipped to an FFL in your home state and transferred there. But like Musketeer said, they most likely won't even let you touch it without you showing them a NYS pistol permit.

None of this applies in the city of course. There you pretty much can't buy a gun. I was in a shop in NYC wanting to look at a Mini-14 and they wouldn't even take it off the rack for me because I didn't have a permit.
