Not sure about FLA, but I wanted to buy one in WV and was told that I would have to have it shipped to PA in order to do the background check. Wasn't willing to go through the hassle.

i had to pass a few years ago on a 9 mm in wv. 100 bucks, transfer and background went over 300. more than the gun was worth

I'm not sure how it worked/works, but when I was in the ARMY, I bought a hand gun out of state, I gave the owner my driver's license(PA), and my military id for the background check, and never had a problem.

federal law states that you can only buy handguns in state of residence.
Wrong. You can buy the handgun, however it must be shipped from the FLA dealer, to a FFL in PA where you would be abe to pick it up.

semantics bite me once again. my definition of "buy" is go to the ffl that has the handgun in stock, do paperwork, pass, pay, then walk out with said firearm. that can only be done in state of residence. better??? i might be wrong but i believe that is what the questioner intended to find out was whether or not he/she could buy and take out of store with them a handgun.

Yep, that's what I meant.

Gonna be in FLA come March and am in the market for a Taurus Judge. Thought maybe if I saw one for a good price down there, I could pick it up. But I do not want to have to buy it down there and have it shipped up here.
