Random FFL Questions to the BATFE
WASHINGTON DC— -(AmmoLand.com)-
How does a licensee handle the following situation?
A handgun and long gun are purchased at the same time by a single transferee who is subject to a waiting period for the handgun, but wants to take the long gun at the time of sale, both firearms being on the same 4473? How should the licensee handle a partial transfer (taking the long gun, but retaining the handgun until the waiting period is met)? Are there any ATF references for this issue?
A licensee may transfer a handgun and a long gun in one transaction. In a situation where the handgun is subject to a waiting period, the licensee should wait until the waiting period has expired and transfer both firearms at the same time. Since you must sign and date at the time the transfer takes place, there would be no place to sign and date the second transfer. As an alternative, the transaction could be completed utilizing separate 4473s. 2.
Is an Out-of-State concealed handgun permit valid in any other (non-issuing) State for purchasing a firearm?
No, a concealed carry permit issued by a State does not give any right to purchase a firearm in another State under the provisions of Brady, nor does it grant the right to carry concealed across State lines unless there is a reciprocity agreement granting permission to do so. 3.
