Can I purchase a firearm?

Reply
 
I saw where there is a gunshow in Natchez this coming weekend. I'll be at my place in Woodville, and may run up there to it. I was wondering if being a La. resident would prevent me from buying a firearm from a Ms dealer at the show? Thanks for any help. Good luck.

out of state
when I was in Tn, on vacation, I tried to purchase a gun from Bass Pro, and the clerk explained to me that in order to buy a firearm out of state, your home state must border that state. So in Ms. you should be ok.

what i heard
I was told you can buy handguns out of state such as online internet sale, out of state dealers, or out of state gun shows but it MUST be shipped to another firearms dealer who is in your state so the chain of possession is:

you pay the out of state dealer and get a receipt, he then ships it from out of state to your instate dealer you arranged it to be shipped to and your dealer handles the paperwork to transfer ownership to you

I have never done it so I could have the details wrong but I think that is the correct way to do out of state purchases

Correct
You are correct Keakar!Must pay your local gun dealer to do background check for purchase and they normally charge you 25.00 bucks!
