Is it legal to buy a gun in PA if you have a PA carry permit.

Can you bring it back to New York and put it on your license here.

Actually, you can but it, because PA does not seem to regulate private sales. Then you will get arrested when you get caught, and so will the guy who sold it to you if ATF can find him.

So the best answer to your question is

YES (actually NO)

and

NO

Yes, it's legal to buy any gun you want in PA, rifle or pistol. Bringing a pistol back to NY is the problem. If you buy it and keep it there you are fine. If you want to bring it back to NY, you have to do the usual dance with Yaphank, and have it FFL transferred from PA to NY.

You make me miss PA with this topic...

It is actually a violation of Federal Law for a resident or dealer of a State to sell a handgun to a resident of another State.

In the case of an FFL transfer the dealer is selling it to the other dealer, at least on paper.

This information is not entirely correct. PA regulates private handgun sales between individuals. In PA, the buyer and seller must go through an FFL. However, this is not the case in every state, the so called "gunshow loophole."

Does the same hold true for every state which does NOT list serial #'s on licenses ?
Very few states list serial# on licenses.

A Convoluted Example: In North Carolina, you need to be resident to get a permit (what we call a blank purchase document) from the county sheriff to buy a handgun from a dealer or an individual. You do not need a permit to buy a gun from a dealer or individual if you have the license to carry a gun issued by the county sheriff in North Carolina. "Buy" includes gifts or barter or any other transfer. You need the same permit to buy or license to carry a handgun to purchase a crossbow in North Carolina. You do not need a license to open carry in North Carolina. You can buy a crossbow in another state and legally transport and use it in North Carolina.

Okay, so no FFL no pistol, what about a rifle of shotgun? Can you buy a longarm in PA from a store and bring it here? What about NJ or CT?
