    Can i buy a gun in Louisiana?

    I have looked over some things and from what I can see I am not allowed to buy a gun from another person unless we go to a ffl in mississippi but could I buy a gun from a dealer in Louisiana or at a gun show with my Mississippi license? For that matter could I buy a gun online and have it shipped to Louisiana and pick it up with my Mississippi license?

    It must be from a ffl and only long guns ie. Rifles or shotguns with stocks. If you were to buy a gun from a la resident and do the transfer at a Louisiana ffl it could only be a long gun. If it was a Louisiana resident and you met at a Mississippi ffl I believe handguns could be transferred as well as long as you meet all requirements. As far as a la gun show goes as long as the person is a ffl and you follow the above rules.

    You can buy any gun in any state ,Rifles can be bought at any FFl in any state with any DL.
    But pistols have to be shipped to your FFL in your residing state.

    Pistol can be shipped dealer-dealer UPS 2nd day air.
    Pistol can be shipped person-dealer UPS next day air.
    Rifle can be shipped in-state person/person UPS ground.
    Rifle can be shipped out of state person-dealer UPS ground.

    Josh, this outlines and answers a lot of buying and selling questions by unlicensed persons:

    I was in Georgia and could not purchase a rifle in that state. Shreveport atf office said yes, new orleans said no. Atlanta said yes, macon ga office said no. Atf doesn't know what they are doing. Moral of the story slowandluekum said he could by a rifle in any state with any dl, and I know from first hand experience you can't in ga according to atf.

    Actually, Georgia will "accept a Louisiana drivers license."

    10-1-101. Nonresidents may purchase rifles and shotguns in Georgia
    Residents of any state of the United States may purchase rifles and shotguns in the State of Georgia, provided such residents conform to applicable provisions of statutes and regulations of the United States, of the State of Georgia, and of the state in which such persons reside.

    HISTORY: Ga. L. 1969, p. 804, 2; Ga. L. 2002, p. 977, 1.
    LA repealed the contiguous state language that was in R.S. 40:1801-4. And it was up for interpretation whether the old law actually made buying in a non-contiguous state illegal.

    See that's what I thought and was told by the Shreveport and atlanta atf office. The macon and new orleans said no, yelled no. Did everything but cuss me out, actually made me scared to attempt to buy a gun in Georgia. One ffl there said I could and three others said I couldn't which is why I called in the first place. New orleans office was the worst the way the guy talked to me I felt like I was going to be tased and arrested if I would been face to face just for asking. Macon office just seemed like they didn't know anything. I honestly feel as if now I was speaking with anti-gun liberals. I wish I could have found that legislation when I was there I would have told them what article to look up. In the end I had the guns I wanted shipped home.
