Purchasing Guns, across state lines?

  1. Howdy,

    Can anyone tell me if there is a problem if I purchase a gun in a state that is not my own? I am heading to my old hometown this weekend and wanted to pick up a shotgun a friend has told me about at a Gun dealer there.

    I live in Michigan UP and am going to Wisconsin this weekend. Any help?

    If it's like here, between Miss. & Tenn. you can be out of state & purchase long guns, but not handguns.

  3. WalMart to the rescue!


    Went to the local WalMart, across the river which is out of state. The head of the Sporting Goods dept assured me that long gun purchases were no big deal. Just do all the paperwork and the NICS check and be on my merry way with my new toy.....

  5. I dunno

    Howdy Guffster,

    I hav a price range, a credit card and about 10 really good gunshops to search......

    I was looking for a 12 ga pump but after that it is an open door as to who makes it.

    Anyone know about Ohio and Michigan? I was wanting to visit Aim this spring and bring a trunk load home!
  7. Call Aim


    In that case I'd just call Aim and ask them.

    Also be sure to contact the states you will be traveling through as with the recent events in the East, a guy driving through the MidWest with a trunk full of Mil-Surp may have a fun time explaining himself at a routine traffic stop...........

    I was thinkin about that too... Does AIM sell to individuals in person? What about SOG? Figured I could make a road trip this summer.
