Can a private owner of a shotgun take it into another state and sell it to a private buyer (non FFL holder)I know with a pistol it must go through a FFl. Are the laws the same for shotguns?

I may be wrong but I don't believe you can sell to someone from another state without going thru an ffl dealer. Even if that person came to your home state. Mac

So to answer the question, no.
Thank an idiot who voted to "close the gunshow loophole".

Thanks for the Replys. I was curious how that type of transaction worked in case someone went to a gun show and bought a shotgun from someone not knowing that the seller was from out of state,
