I saw somewhere that Target has FFLs.  Is this true? If so, can I just buy a handgun online and then ship it to my local target?

I don't know this to be true.  I seriously doubt it, at least on Long Island.   Target is not a gun friendly place.   Currently,  I don't think you can buy an airgun at Target.

Even the Long Island Walmarts are straying from being gun friendly.  If you do purchase a long arm at Walmart, you are escorted out of the store with it like a criminal.   Ammo purchases  that are chambered for handguns and rifle are treated as handgun ammo and require a pistol license to purchase also.

"Ammo purchases  that are chambered for handguns and rifle are treated as handgun ammo and require a pistol license to purchase also."


I think this is due to misinformation amongst the employees.  At the Middle Island Wal*Mart two weeks ago I purchased some Winchester 9mm.  The young clerk behind the counter asked me for my pistol license.  I have no problem providing it.  But before I could get to my wallet, the mamnager on duty explained to him that if the ammunition were for a long gun, no pistol permit is required.  HE then explained to him how to use the register to answer the pistol permit question.

When they scan the ammunition, the POS system automatically alerts for a pistol license.  I guess I'm saying, don't blame the clerk, blame corporate for shoddy training.

You are correct, however, that shoddy training extends to the store manager in the case of the Crooked Hill Road, Commack store.  A personal friend of mine was confronted when he tried to buy ammo for his CX4 Storm.  First the salesman asked him for his pistol license, then they got the auto department manager involved, finally the store manager and assistant store manager were involved.  The outcome was that my friend pulled out his Blackberry went online and showed them guns including the Storm, Camp Carbine and High-Point carbine that were chambered for pistol rounds.  He left disgusted and exhausted with a box of ammo after they conceded.
