    My uncle brought some toys, a Sig P226 and a Beretta Whitewing Over-Under, in as he was visiting. He wants to sell them to me. However, he is from Virginia. We are in West Virginia. Now, to my understanding, all we have to do is take the guns to a local FFL, and fill out the paperwork to have them legally transfered.

    Is this correct? Or does he have to ship the guns FROM his state? Can this all be done at one FFL in West Virginia since he is already here and has the guns with him?

    What are the typical transfer fees?

    Also, do both parties have to fill out the paperwork or what?

    He takes them to an FFL in your state of residence. You fill out 4473. You take them home.

    Assuming no special state laws.

    IANAL but I believe if they are gifts you don't have to fill out any paperwork. But since he is selling them to you, you would need to go to a FFL.

    Doesn't matter if it's a gift or not.
    Since the firearms are being transfered between residents of different states it must be transfered through a FFL dealer in the reciepant's state of residence.
    This is Federal law and there is no gift exemption to the Federal laws.
