As a Mississippi resident, can I purchase a gun at a gunshow in another state? I going to Missouri in June and there happens to be a big show while I'm there.

I don't think so. You can buy from an individual, but not from an FFL. It is confusing, so I don't go to out of state gunshows.

It is a federal violation to sell a pistol to a person whom you know does not reside in your state and also to bring a pistol that you purchased in another state into yours.

See 18 USC 922(a)(3) and (a)(5).

+1 no handguns unless shipped to your ffl
Yes on longguns, just don't buy more than 2 or they must report it to the ATF.
Absolutely do not buy from individual out of state. only dealers.

You cannot buy a firearm from a private citizen from another State. The transfer has to be by FFL. You cannot buy a handgun from an FFL from another State, you can only purchase long arms at a gunshow in another State and only from a FFL Dealer.

Ok just for having a good discussion.

What's the difference in me going to a out of state gun show and finding that dream Springfield custom shop 1911PRO just the way I want it. I pay the dealer the $2500 and have him send it to my home FFL, where I pick it up when I get home.

Or

I get online on this dealers web page and see he's got the PRO instock. I call him up and give him a CC# over the phone. Fax him a copy of my guys FFL lic. He send me the gun.
