- MA/NH Border
I think a MA resident can purchase a handgun in NH. However, in order to take possession of the handgun, the purchaser MUST have the handgun sent to a FFL in MA, where the purchaser will pay a transfer fee, assuming said FFL has already agreed to transfer the handgun. Please correct me if I am wrong.You could buy a long gun in NH before this passed. You could not, and can not, buy a hand gun in NH unless you are a NH resident. That is determined by federal law, not state law.
