Hi!

The guys (and gals) on this forum are very knowledgeable, so perhaps someone knows the answer to this question.
Can a Virginia resident buy and take direct possession of a long gun from a New York (not NYC) FFL?
One store in Suffolk County allowed me to do so and another said that I couldn't, so I need some clarification.
Virginia law allows its residents to purchase long guns from states that are non-contiguous to Virginia and all firearms that are legal to purchase and own in New York are also legal to own in Virginia.
Please clarify.
Thx!

Go the store in Suffolk that allows you,

FFL don't risk thier license for one transaction.

As far as I know thats a big no no, I used to have an

out of state residency and I was not allowed to buy a rifle.

I called ATF in suffolk and they said all FFL dealers in Suffolk

county are regulated by the BATF they should have the same

Policy.

Thanks for the response.
The problem is that people may be unaware of the correct policy.
They may interpret the law in the way that best suits them but is incorrect at the same time.

Keep in mind that after the recent gun store raids in Nasau, and Mayor Bloomberg sending his people to out of state gun dealers, any dealer here would be hesitant too sell a gun to anyone from out of state. And I dont even know if its legal or not. But even it it is, gun dealers are on guard right now.

I agree. Long Island gun dealers are in CYA mode right now.
Regarding Bloomberg's investigations of out-of-state dealers, he did not use New York investigators to conduct his raids. He used Arizona investigators with Arizona driver's licenses to raid Arizona gun shows.

In Arizona maybe. But a few years back he sent his own people down south to buy guns. And some states even passed law making it illegal to do what he did.

We went through this queston on another thread some time ago.
You can buy shoulder arms in non continguous states, but they must be face to face
and the must be legal in your home state.
However a dealer is not legally obligated to do so if he doesn;t want to.
All mail order transactions must go FFL to FFL.
