Boy, I am going from memory here and may be wrong, but I remember back in the late 60's and early 70's that you could buy a handgun anywhere, Out of State, or from a private individual without Federal Paperwork. Then, as emphasis on gun control picked up, legistlation was passed (late 70's or early 80's?) to restrict sales via an FFL to your home State with a three day waiting period while your information was reviewed by law enforcement. Later, as a result of the shooting of James Brady during the Reagan assassination attempt in 1981, the Brady Bill and today's restrictions where you are compared against a real time computer data base. Since many FFL dealers may not be experienced with this specific set of events, I personally would call and explain the situation to your local police or State police and see what they advise.
