    Default NY State Resident buying in another state (NH)

    What can I buy in NH without shipping to an FFL with a NYS drivers license

    Can I buy 762 and 223 ammo?

    9mm pistol ammo?

    Preban Mags for my AR?

    If I wanted to buy an FS2000 they would ship it to my FFL in NYS correct? Assuming it only had a 10rd mag.

    Are there any rifles that can be bought and not shipped to an FFL in NYS? Can I go up there buy a rifle and walk out the door after background check?

    Any help would be appreciated I am new to this and do not quite understand all the ins and outs yet.

    It's only handguns that have to be shipped to a FFL in your home state, as I recall. Longarms have to just comply with your home state's laws (AWB, etc).

    Since NY and NH are not adjacent states, the long arm transfer also needs to take place at a NY FFL.

    Check BATF regs, they are very clear on this matter.

    That is not correct. The requirement for adjacency was dropped long ago. You can buy a long gun in any state, provided you obey the laws of both states. This is addressed in the ATF's FAQ, which reads, in part:

    (B2) From whom may an unlicensed person acquire a firearm under the GCA? [Back]

    A person may only acquire a firearm within the person’s own State, except that he or she may purchase or otherwise acquire a rifle or shotgun, in person, at a licensee's premises in any State, provided the sale complies with State laws applicable in the State of sale and the State where the purchaser resides. A person may borrow or rent a firearm in any State for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes.

    ammo is no problem, however you will want to be very very careful driving through MA if you do not have a MA non-resident permit.

    Also make sure it's legal for you to own what you buy in NY.
