A Question For The Local Horsetraders

Good morning everyone!

I have a quick question for the frequent traders. Being in the Lexington area, I come in contact with people in Cinci/Dayton, OH and Greater Louisville, IN,and many times I may talk to someone just barely out of state with a tempting trade offer or item for sale. So I'm wondering if an out-of-state resident can hand-deliver a firearm to a KY FFL, or if he/she has to ship it?

A recent example...I found a pistol I had been looking for everywhere, and it happened to be in the hands of an IN resident who lives about a half hour north of LOU. We both wanted to do a FTF, but we ended up shipping the pistol. By the time he payed the Paypal fees, I payed FFL fees, and we split shipping, our fair deal ended up costing us both way too much.

In that situation, can an Indiana resident cross the border and meet me at an FFL in Louisville to make the deal legal, or would the seller actually have to ship the pistol to the FFL who is only a few miles down the road, but happens to be in another state 'cuz a river lays between them? From reading the rules on the ATF website, it appears it MUST be shipped, but that rule, as written, seems more directed at FFLs operating outside their home state.

Thanks all!!

The seller needs to take it to an FFL in the state where the buyer resides

Beretta9 is correct.

Federal regulations for gun shows allow out of state residents to dispose of guns to an FFL in any state. You can't legally do a FTF, but I as an Indiana resident can bring any firearm to a Kentucky FFL and he could do the transfer.

Excellent. Thanks for the help guys.

Now I realize we wasted time and money on that last deal, but who knows how many more are yet to come.

Thanks again to both of you!
