    Default What can a MA resident buy in Maine?

    I just got back from the range with another NES member where I bumped into a guy (MA resident) who bought a .22 pump action rifle at the Kittery trading post. I also talked to 4 seasons today about reloading supplies and they told me to go to Kittery because they have it in stock.

    I know I can't buy handguns out of state, but what can a MA resident with a LTC buy in Maine/NH?

    Long guns? What about EBR's?
    Reloading supplies?
    Ammo?

    Thanks for your insight. I would hate to drive all the way up there and find out I can't actually buy anything.

    Yep, per federal law.
    Long guns? What about EBR's?
    Yep, as long as they compliant with the MA AWB [spit].
    Reloading supplies?
    Ammo?

    Yep, Kevin is right. You can buy ammo and reloading supplies, and you can buy long guns you're legally allowed to own here in MA. Typically one cannot buy handguns out of state, but you can also probably buy those at KTP (or other Maine FFLs) if you work it right, Birdman. ATF has said you are a resident in in Maine when your staying in Maine, and a resident of Mass when staying in Mass. It really depends upon what KTP will accept as proof of residency in Maine.

    (Birdman has a house in Maine, for those of you confused by my comments)

    You can buy rifles/shotguns, or anything else that the laws of that state allow them to sell to you.

    You don't need a Maine license to purchase in Maine.
