Purchasing a handgun in Oregon ?

I live in Washington and have a concealed carry permit. I have a couple questions.

Can I buy a revolver in Oregon?
How long is the wait?
Any hassles?
Anyone know any Cimarron dealers in Portland?
Where would be a cheap place to order from?

Thanks

You can not buy a pistol in another state from a FFL holder (gun dealer) and take it home with you. You have to have it shipped to a dealer in Washington and then go threw the normal transfer paperwork and pay whatever fee the FFL holder charges for the transfer.

Nope.... just as Cuervo stated..You can not buy a pistol in another state from a FFL holder (gun dealer) and take it home with you.

But check around at gun clubs and forums, lots of good ffl guys, some may only charge ya $5 for the trouble...

i had something similar happen to me, and learned the state police can hold off as long as they wish and don't need to give a reason, but mine was for my AR lower...
no one seems to care about this until it happens to them. i feel your pain...

He could technically buy a gun in Oregon as long as he had it shipped to an ffl in Washington who would then do his BGC. The ffl would charge a transfer fee and the $10 bgc

Then why not just buy it from a WA Dealer? The transfer fee is then a non-issue.

Unless it's "the last one in the world available" or some fancy collector's item, why go out of state to purchase a firearm that has hundreds, if not thousands, of the same product right where he lives?

I agree. It's just easier (and cheaper) to look locally.

For you to buy a Firearm in Oregon legally. It must transfer to you through a WA FFL where you have to go through what every WA requires as a BGC and TAXES. This includes A new oe used firearm from a FFL or a private party. WA does not let you out of the Taxes due.

If you notice the join date, I suspect it was dredged up by fellow refugees looking for a new home. That is what I am doing.

Not only OLD, but WONG. You can LEGALLY buy long guns across any state lines (as long as it is legal in both states) as long as it is though an FFL.

NO FTF sales are legal across state lines.

WELL NOW this is a sticky wicket. Seams NWCID didn't read the original post.

Not sure if his grade should be lower or if he should just get an incomplete.

The Original Question was about buying a Revolver across state lines. Now I will give you there are a couple examples of revolving rifles. The one based on an 1858 Remington New Model Army And one newer one by Rossi that shoots 45LC and 410. I'm pretty sure the OP wasn't asking about those.

So the correct answer is the one I gave in my post above.

And once again I'll say sorry for opening up an old thread as I said before I'm not used to a forum that moves so slow.

That statement is not true. it is ONLY true for non long guns (ie handguns, other and NFA items). Had you said handgun, revolver, pistol, ect I would have nothing to disagree with but you said "firearm".

Sorry for reading

So a WA resident can buy a long gun, non handgun in Oregon and take it back to WA without paying the TAX?

A WA resident can legally buy a long gun at an FFL in OR and walk out the door. It does not need to go to an FFL in WA. This is true for any state though as long as the state law in both allow for it.

A WA resident is responsible to pay "Use tax" on ANY item purchased outside the state of WA (that has not had tax paid on it) that is going to be brought for primary use in WA. Be that a TV, a gun or a case of soda...... http://dor.wa.gov/content/findtaxesandrates/usetax/
