I have been searching- still haven't found it, sorry-

I am in Oregon on vacation- can I purchase a used long gun and take it home with me? or does it need to go through an FFL transfer?

Thanks in advance

Depends upon your own state of residence.

1. It has to go through an FFL by Federal Law.

2. If your state law allows, you may conduct the transfer at an Oregon FFL and take the long gun with you. Both states' law must allow that, and I know Oregon law does.

3. If your state law does not allow the out of state long gun purchase, then the rifle must be shipped/mailed to an FFL in your state of residence for transfer.

NavyLT, as usual, is correct on the law. But just to clarify, it's usually the gun itself that is the issue, not your state of residence. Meaning: about all places allow someone to buy a bolt-action rifle, for example, but some states flip out if the rifle can accept a 10+ round magazine, has a vertical foregrip, etc. (think CA, MA, etc.).

PS - why would you vacation in Oregon? It's just like WA - nasty, dark, wet, dirty, and full of trolls and hobbits. Now go home and tell your neighbors that so they quit moving to the PNW and crowding us out. ;)

At least it's not full of Twilight nuts. I just spent the weekend up on the peninsula (Sequim mostly), and I even saw Twilight branded Coffee :barf:

Thanks guys- thinking more of lever action or bolt- I'm from ND- have 2 sisters in oregon, have to visit them once in a while. hate to leave ND this time of the year- fishing is awesome right now, plus, we haven't had any snow in at least 6 weeks ;)

too many trees and too many people out here in the PNW :), although I love the palouse country. want to hit some pawn/gun shops in the portland area - always looking for a good deal!

Fill me in - what do you mean?

mwsfarm - I agree. ND is nice. I think everything from the western border of Illinois clean through to the pacific is pretty dang nice. That's the "sweet spot" of the US in my book.

From ND you won't have any problems with an Oregon FFL for long guns.

Twilight is a book series by Stephenie Meyer that is super uber popular especially among youngish teenage girls.

This would probably apply to Oregon as well, I saw a Marlin I had been looking for in a Cabelas in Washington while on vacation. I purchased it, but as I was flying back to Arizona and did not want the hassle of bringing it with me on the plane, I had Cabelas send it to their Glendale store, where I took delivery of it a week later.

Additionally, it's set in Forks, WA, so there's tons of stuff up there related to it. I work with someone who had to drive the 3 hours to Forks in order to buy some sweat pants that said "Bella" (The main character's name) across the butt for her 40 year old sister.
