    I have a quick question about selling a long gun FTF. I am in MO, and I know here a long gun can be sold FTF, no paper work to another MO resident. Does that apply if the buyer is a resident of another state such as Arkansas. If we meet FTF in MO can I legally sell him the rifle directly, or do we need to find a dealer to do the transfer?

    I believe that for someone who is not a state resident you have to do a transfer. I'm not certain.

    I was told by my local dealer that I can not sell a gun to a person of a different state on a private sale.

    Take that for whatever it is worth - I didn't personaly check on the laws.

    A non licensee cannot sell a non-antique rifle to a non licensee resident of another state without going through a licensee first.

    Yep, in other words you can't sell the rifle to someone who isn't a resident of the same state. Without going through a dealer.

    While it is true that you can't sell to a resident of another state, there is also nothing in the law the imposes a duty on you to verify the other person's residence. In other words, for you to be prosecuted it would have to be proven that you sold to a resident of another state and you knew they were a resident of another state. An impossible burden of proof. Don't ask don't tell.
