    I am a PA resident. I want to give one of my long guns to a friend who is a NY state resident. He can legally own long guns. I am going up there, not mailing it.

    Do we need to do a transfer in a gun shop?

    As long as he's not a resident of NYC, nope. You are good to go.

    The services of an FFL are required because this is an interstate transfer.

    This is from the ATF website regarding the Gun Control Act. I had checked it before but had not found this. It may be ok under state law, but it looks like Federal Law requires you go through a Licensee.
