You will need to have the gun shipped to an FFL (Federal Firearms License) dealer - typically your local gun store, but there are many home-based FFL's too. They will charge you a fee to transfer the gun to you, anywhere from $15-$50, or more even.
I looked on gunbroker.com for my local FFL's and found a great guy reasonably close by who only charged $20. He received the firearm in two days, and everything was perfect. Definitely a good way to go, and I highly doubt you'll find a better deal locally, even if you find a dealer with it in stock (especially once you add sales tax to the mix).
