    So in the next week I'm going to be heading south to the CMP South Store. Since I'm an Illinois resident do I have to still wait for 24 hours after purchase before I can pick up my rifle? I'm really hoping that I don't have to because I just don't want to waste the time hanging around. Thanks.

    It is my understanding that you have the choice of walking out the door with it or, having it shipped to your home. No FFL required.

    If you take it with you, you'll need to pay 6.5% sales tax. If you have it shipped you'll pay shipping only, no sales tax.

    Nowhere Man, I understand that, but with federal gun laws don't you have to follow your home state's laws? Wouldn't that mean that I'd have to wait until the next day to pick up my rifle? I'm hoping for a M1 Carbine.

    I'm pretty sure CMP is exempt. That's why they can ship it to your door and avoid FFL's. I'm also sure someone will chime in and confirm this.

    Nice choice.

    That's what I was wondering about because I knew that they were exempt from that I didn't know if they were also exempt from waiting periods. But seriously, if you still need a day to "cool off" after you went through all the work to qualify for a CMP rifle, it's really not going to matter. I would just call them and ask, but their site says not to call, just email and I'd like an answer before I leave for there at the end of the week.

    Also, how are they exempt? Is it because they are government chartered?

    Illinois law only applies in Illinois. CMP operates under a Federal charter. The AL and OH state laws don't apply to the CMP stores. I believe Ohio says (or did say a few years ago) you have to live in a contiguos state to buy a long gun. Wal Mart wouldn't sell me a rifle (which was a very good deal) but I walked out of the CMP North Store with a Garand.

    Federal law does not limit you to contiguous states for long gun purchases. It is however Walmarts policy.

    Are you sure you aren't reporting that you didn't pay tax on an out of state purchase on your 1080 ;)

    You have to follow your home state's laws. This keeps people in California who have a 10 day wait from going to another state close by and getting a gun that day. It's dumb, but it was a loophole that they closed. I'm asking if because the CMP is federally chartered they can get around this.

    CMP is not "exempt". This right off of their site:

    So, if a waiting period is ALL that your state requires for a long gun purchase you're probably OK.

    They ship to your home, when they do, because they've already done the federally required NICS background check on the info you provided during the application. There's no need to notarize anything at the store because they'll identify you and watch you sign papers right there.

    And don't forget all of this stuff:
