    Is it Ok to drive to GA from FL for Face to face purchase of a fire arm from private individual?
    Or is this some kind of interstate purchase?

    Thanks- and if someone has legal references that say this kind of purchase is ok I would appreciate it

    I did a search and could not find anything under "face to face interstate purchase"

    thanks for the help

    Private sales of handguns are supposed to be between residents of the same state. If there is an exception to this then i am not aware of it.

    No, it is illegal to do so. The seller may transfer it ot a FFL in your state, and you get it from them. I suppose you could do it, and there is a good chance no one would ever know...but I am taking that risk.

    (B2) From whom may an unlicensed person acquire a firearm under the GCA?

    A person may only acquire a firearm within the person’s own State, except that he or she may purchase or otherwise acquire a rifle or shotgun, in person, at a licensee's premises in any State, provided the sale complies with State laws applicable in the State of sale and the State where the purchaser resides. A person may borrow or rent a firearm in any State for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes.

    [18 U.S.C. 922(a)(3) and (5), 922(b)(3), 27 CFR 478.29 and 478.30]

    This means it is OK for a rifle or shotgun - correct?
