I'm looking to purchase a NIB Glock 19 and I would like to do so as soon as possible. Purchasing it in NJ is out of the question. I would have to wait a minimum of 30 days (more like 3+ months) and pay over $60 to get a Firearms ID Card and Permit to Purchase a Handgun. I've therefore decided to wait until I move to VA to buy a gun. However, I won't be able to establish residency until July 25th, which is when my lease will start. And I would rather not wait the 30 days required by federal law to purchase a handgun in Virginia from a Federally licensed dealer. So, the question is, what is the best way to go about purchasing a NIB Glock legally in VA without waiting the 30 days? First Option- Purchase at a Gun Show There's going to be a large gun show on July 27-29 (C&E Gun Shows, The Nation's Gun Show - http://www.cegunshows.com/nations_gun_show.htm) in Chantilly, VA at the Dulles Expo Center which is very close to where I'll be living. If I can find a NIB Glock 19 at the Gun show sold by a private seller, I should have no problem purchasing it legally. If the seller asks, I will have VA ID, a lease with the same address as on my ID, and a passport. I'm wondering whether this is a realistic expectation. Is it likely that I'll be able to find a NIB Glock 19 from a private seller? Also, are there any downsides to doing this? Option Two- Private FTF Sale in VA, not at Gun Show Thanks in advance for the advice. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
