Rifle transfer across state line Login/Join

My brother lives in an adjoining state and it is legal for either of us to cross the state line to purchase a rifle or shotgun. If I wanted to gift him a rifle, would the transfer still have to go through an FFL?

I appreciate any helpful input.

You can in most cases purchase long guns across adjoining state lines.

But, person to person transfers still have to go through FFL like a hand gun.

Because you are both "non-licensees" the transfer will need to go through a "licensee."

(while the FAQ uses the term "purchased," if you check the statute citations you will see it applies to all transfers)

Thanks DMF, I checked and he has a LGS he does business with that can handle the transfer.
