    Probably not, but was the seller an Alabama resident?

    But, is it legal for a private seller to bring a long gun across state lines and sell to a private buyer?
    If the buyer and seller are from the same state but deal happens (with physical transfer) in another state, is that legal or doubly-illegal?

    Probably double-naught illegal. (not really, hell I don't know)

    I think you could make the argument that it would be legal even if the transfer or sale took place across state lines provided both are residents of the same state. I haven't read the section of code in years.

    I was researching this recently. My understanding is that for handguns, a FFL in your state must do the transaction. If purchasing a long gun from someone out of state, you can purchase it from an FFL from either state.

    If you was in another state and wanted to buy either a long gun or handgun from a "walker", you could pay a FFL dealer at the gun show or gun store to do the transfer from the other person to yourself.

    Anyone know any different?
