    I couldn't answer this one and need some help.

    My SIL and daughter are both active duty Air Force and just returned from many years overseas. They are stationed at DM in Tucson. My SIL, of course, has not been actively buying any guns for years now and the first thing he wanted to do was add several items to his gun safe. He is a Montana resident according to his D/L.

    He went to a gun show this past weekend and was refused because he was not an AZ resident. I told him that was a good thing because they were going to hose him pretty good.

    So my question is can he buy guns legally in AZ at a dealer or gun show?


    Can he do FTF in AZ legally? I have no idea what the FTF requirements are in AZ.


    Thanks in advance

    Yes and Yes. Active duty ID card + permanent orders to a state = residency in the state ordered to, for the purposes of firearms transactions.

    Like the sales guy at a gun shop said, show me your ID, orders, cash, and welcome to the free U.S.A., and take your pick of any gun you see in front of you without a sold tag.:)

    I even keep a copy of my orders in my wallet. Then I have everything I need. And as always, anyone in the military should be keeping multiple copies of every important document.

    I would have expected Arizona, especially around Davis-Monthan to be familiar with dealing with the military.

    Must have been a newbie or a dummy.
