Alabama to Georgia FTF sale? Login/Join

If there is a pistol in Alabama that I want to purchase from an individual and we are both legal and 21yrs or older with convictions - Are we able to meet in either Georgia or Alabama to do a face to face sale? I know I can do it in GA, but I've never bought something over state lines. Any help would be appreciated.

No face-to-face sales across state lines. Face-to-face sales are only legal between residents of the same state. All out of state gun sales must be transferred through a FFL.

In your case, the seller could drive the gun to a FFL in the buyer's state, meet the buyer there, and have the FFL do the transfer. That could save a little versus shipping it to the FFL, but the FFL still has to be involved.

This. Tell him to meet you at a gun shop in Carrollton or Lagrange.

FMJ Armory in LaGrange, or Pawn Express in LaGrange, will both do the transfer for you. Really nice folks at both establishments.
FMJ has a really nice indoor range too.
I'm not affiliated with either location, but shop at both often.
AR Bunker in Newnan will also do the transfer for you, and I think that the owner of AR Bunker is also a member here.
