    I'm going to ask a dealer too but thought I would ask y'all first:
    If 2 parties live very close but are still in neighboring states:
    1) Do we still need to go through a dealer?
    2) Does the dealer need to be in the same state as the buyers state of residence?

    I live in Md...cant the transfer be handled by a Pa. dealer (the sellers state of residence)since I can also purchase from him normally?

    Yes, you still need to go through a dealer and the dealer needs to be in the RECEIVING state.

    So, YES and YES.

    I think to purchase in PA, the gun would need to be "sold" to the dealer and then "sold" from the dealer to you. (Or something like that.)

    I called 2 other dealers and both verified what MIA said is true when applying to long guns....handguns are the only guns held to the rules MX-8B and SShooterZ put out there

    Long Guns are usually no problem to buy in a neighboring state. Handguns are another animal. If you are on the left coast or in a similarly "gun-un-friendly" state, it might be the exception. Maryland and PA seem OK with it, for now.

    I went to a dealer to do the tranaction for me to please the seller...he said the same as MIA....Its not necessary but he'd be glad to take my money.
