You're correct. If it's in-state, you can do a face to face (both parties have to reside in the same state). I'm pretty sure it has to go through an FFL if you ship it in state (even if both parties reside in the same state).S&W 40 said:Have a couple questions for the guys with or knowledge of FFL's.
To purchase a firearm and ship it out of state it has to go thru a FFL unless you are shipping to yourself. Do you still have to use a FFL if it an in state sale? I have read much on the ATF site but have only found subjects for shipping out of state.
I'm not sure on this one. PM a member here... cdtracing. He should know more about this, I believe.I am getting ready to apply for my C&R but have also thought about getting a dealer FFL for a side business mostly transfers. What exactly does "must intend to engage in a firearms business" mean. Would running a business from your home with proper security (safe) primarily for transfers or guns shows qualify? Just curious about the ATF I know local and all laws may have different variations.
