Hi, all. I've got a wierd question here, raised by a colleague today as we were discussing guns we'd bought. As you know, Federal law requires that any interstate firearms purchase must be sent by the seller to a FFL-holder near the buyer. The FFL-holder then does the background check on the buyer, and if he/she passes, delivers the gun. My colleague said that he'd got around this by using the ability - granted in Federal law - to ship your own guns to yourself. He says that on three occasions, while travelling out-of-state, he'd found guns for sale, privately, and wanted them. He shipped them to his own home address, from an address in the state he was in, but with his name as the shipper. He claims that this gets around the FFL requirement. I hold that it doesn't, that he's acting illegally, and will face a stiff penalty if caught. Any input from the family out there?
