    I know one must purchase handguns via FFL if the seller is in another state, but what about long guns? If I want to purchase a rifle from a fellow forum member who lives in Ohio and I'm from Kentucky, must we go thru a FFL for a transfer?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not so sure about that. I have bought multiple rifles from stores in Indiana and I live in KY. I think if it's a bordering state it's ok, only with a long gun though

    That is only true if you are buying from a dealer. The original poster was talking about transfer between two unlicensed persons.

    That's not a "private sale" - the store is an FFL and it's ;legal.

    Private sales across state lines (or in state to/from a resident of another state) is a felony.

    Yet another reason to avoid Ohio and Indiana...

    Thanks for the responses.

    thats why I said "not so sure". Bren would be the expert on this subject so I would follow his advice.
     
  7. Bern is correct and I am not an expert?
