    I am a Michigan resident with cpl. I went to gun show in Indiana yesturday to get brass. Found a handgun I might buy. Seller is private but also a Michigan resident. Could I have printed RI60 and done transaction right there or would transaction have to be onMichigan soil??

    Also are people with ffl's allowed to buy from residents from different States ftf???

    I have no idea, but either case sounds legit to me. Residents of the same state no matter where they are at the moment and all. I also guess that an FFL can receive a firearm from anyone as long as it goes thru his books.

    Shows how little I *know*, but I'd have called either good.

    The transaction itself would be lawful, but you would commit a federal felony returning it to your home state.

    Because you're residents of the same state, he can lawfully sell it to you and you can lawfully buy it, but you can't take it home with you. :rolleyes:

    We're safer this way ... right? :scrutiny:

    Well, yes, that would change the picture a little -- but would introduce another problem! If he's currently residing in IN, and his buddy is from MI, that's an interstate transfer.

    So both he AND his pal would have to have legal residences in both states!
