Private Sale of Handgun
« on: October 11, 2014, 03:10:46 PM »
I am a resident of PA
I have been told that I can legally purchase a handgun from a VA resident without going through either a VA or PA FFL.  
Is this legal?

JAA,

Unless you are an FFL yourself, no, you will need to go through an FFL. An unlicensed person (in other words, non-FFL) can only purchase within their own state, or a rifle or shotgun in person from an FFL in another state (provided that the sale complies with both your state and the other state’s laws). In this scenario, you will need to go through an FFL.

Thank you for your question.
