    I'll go along w/ everything above except the contiguous state face-to-face sale to a nonresident. I believe fed law says you can sell to unlicensed residents of your own state, but not another state. Sales to residents of another state will require an FFL be involved.

    As a general rule, send it to a FFL in another state. There are some FFLs who will not receive ecept from another FFL. That is their perogative. Make sure that the buyer's FFL will receive from an individual.

    The GCA of 1968 prohibits sale of a long gun or handgun to a person who resides in a different state than the seller. Selling to a resident of a contiguous state and/or face to face sale does not change that. Go to the BATFE website for the laws.
