Father in law wants to buy one while they're here. Can he do it with an out of state license?

I guess the way I read the law is that you have to have a valid license but that some gun shops may choose to not sell you one.

I believe a long gun is okay, but not handgun.

He can buy it and have it shipped to a dealer in his home state.

This. If he buys it from an ffl, they can ship it to an ffl in his home state. He may not buy one or be gifted one from an individual unless they ship it ffl to ffl

Are you saying that if a relative visits a relative that lives in another state he can't be given a handgun and return home with it? If this is true ... I just learned something.

I got my info here. https://www.durysguns.com/news/gun-transfer-laws-buying-out-of-state

The statues can be hard to interpret, so I let them interpret it.

This one was actually easier to interpret.

The reason you need to ask this question is because federal law generally prohibits such interstate transfers unless they go through an FFL. § 18.2-922(a)(3) says that:

(a) It shall be unlawful—

(3) for any person, other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to transport into or receive in the State where he resides (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, the State where it maintains a place of business) any firearm purchased or otherwise obtained by such person outside that State …

Just added more information to my cranium. up

I never actually thought about this until just now. I did know that I can't go out of my home state and make a handgun purchase. But a gift from a relative never crossed my mind.

Me either. I've never been gifted a gun from an out of state relative. But I know some people who have. I may want to let them know so they can remedy the situation if it ever became an issue.

I have been gifted a gun from an out of state relative. Never gave it a thought as I couldn't imagine it being a problem. It was a long gun though.

Btw, I think it's bs. But if that gun is ever stolen, it might be in your best interest not to report it.
