    Please post your findings. Last time I bought a firearm, all I had to do was fill out the form and provide my permit. Now, maybe someone was making a call that I was unaware of, but all the salesman asked me was, "Do you have a FL carry permit?"

    The guys at the two stores I visited today basically feel it is better to call all sales in, than to not call one that should've been. Since the FFL is assessed a $5 charge for each call in, you can be assured your store isn't calling without telling you.

    The guy at a little shop in Idaho told me it doesn't cost him anything and he charges nothing for the check.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears

    As a resident of Nevada, I think I can purchase guns in a few neighboring states (Idaho, Utah, Arizona). If one of these states doesn't have to do a background check, I might start buying my guns there. I visit a couple of these states once or twice a year anyhow.

    Is this feasible?

    Long guns can be purchased in non-resident states but not handguns. The only way to purchase a handgun is have it sent to an FFL in your home state and then the paperwork has to be done along with the call, if required.

    Nevada NICS checks

    The Nevada Sheriffs & Chiefs Association and the Nevada legislature dropped the ball on our NICS exemption. One of the terms that BATFE made when it was temporarily reinstated is that it be addressed legislatively. The Nevada Legislature failed to do that in the 2007 session.

    I have heard personally from Assemblyperson Settelmeyer that his BDR will address reinstating the Nevada NICS exemption in the 2009 legislative session along with removing the specific semi-auto pistol qualification requirement so it will be any revolver and any semi-auto. I expect to see the NICS exemption portion of the bill to pass. However, I do not expect the specific semi-auto qualification requirement to pass since Bernie Anderson was re-elected.

    You can buy long guns in bordering States if you have that State (or political subdivision of the State in the case of Idaho) respective CCW (i.e. AZ for AZ, ID or ID and UT for UT). AZ, ID and UT have no State law prohibition residents of bordering States from buying long guns. I can buy long guns (non-NFA/class III) all day long NICS exempt in Utah since I have a valid Utah CFP. However, I cannot buy handguns or class III/NFA firearms since I do not hold a residence in Utah.

    Yes. I'm in AZ every few weeks and I always go gun shopping when there. I take possession of long guns at purchase, I have handguns sent to a dealer here and I have to pay the $25 extortion on them. Generally, rifle and shotgun prices are cheaper in AZ and with the $25 theft avoided, the deal is even better. I imagine that 'fee' has cost local gunstores $$$ in actual profit in my case alone...

  10. Because your state blows. Get a few thousand signatures and send the to your congressman. Quit whining and do something to fix it
