    I am looking for a FFL in SC close to NC state line that can transfer a rifle from me (NC resident) to a SC resident. Does anyone have any suggestions for an FFL that won't charge an arm and a leg to do the transfer?

    I bet Scott @TARHEELSTATE in Matthews could do it if you're looking for a place around Charlotte

    Yeah, I'm sorry. I should have been more specific. I am looking for someone between Charlotte and Fort Mill area. My understanding is due to the fact that the buyer is in SC, the FFL would need to be in SC as per:

    https://www.atf.gov/questions-and-a...on-receive-firearm-his-or-her-state-he-or-she

    How may an unlicensed person receive a firearm in his or her State that he or she purchased from an out–of–State source?
    An unlicensed person who is not prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms may purchase a firearm from an out–of–State source, provided the transfer takes place through a Federal firearms licensee in his or her State of residence.

    [18 U.S.C 922(a)(3) and 922(b)(3); 27 CFR 478.29]

    That FAQ is correct sort of but not really for your situation. You don't *have* to drive to SC - It's legal for a SC resident to receive a long gun at any FFL in NC. but that $15 transfer is going to be hard to beat.

    I hear this a lot and I am not saying you are wrong because I honestly don't know. All I can go on is what is written on the ATF's website. Can you direct me to something that supports your statement? Now, having said that, what you say makes perfectly good sense because a FLL is a FLL and whether they are in NC or SC, they are still going to run a 4473 on the purchaser. My question is why would the ATF put the above on their website. It is very confusing but without some other guidance, it is all I have to go on.

    Second question on this FAQ:
    https://www.atf.gov/firearms/firear...ons-unlicensed-persons#gca-unlicensed-acquire

    ref: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/922
    [18 U.S.C. 922(a)(3) and (5), 922(b)(3)]

    I *think* the context of the FAQ you found is for online sales (Gunbroker, Buds, etc) which would definitely require shipping to an FFL in your home state. In any case it's an abridged version of the law. The Law says 'you have to buy guns in your home state, except blah blah blah legalease'

    Ah, OK. Thanks for that reference. I appreciate being educated in this matter.

    Edited: The word "schooled" just didn't come off well. I really do appreciate Catfish clearing this up for me.

    I know this has already been covered by the legalese however I can speak from experience that you can do a long gun transfer to someone from another state in NC. I had a guy drive from TN to pick up a rifle I was selling and we did an FFL transfer to him in NC.
