    Hey all I have been looking for this answer all night and can't find a clear one. Can I as a Ohio resident go to a gun shop in Kentucky and buy a rifle a bring it home with me? I appreciate any help/answers!

    I think you have to be a resident for at least 6 months in order to purchase a firearm in Kentucky

    I remember reading this yesterday at the range. If I remember correctly you can purchase rifles but not handguns.

    I live in Kentucky. I'll contact my LGS tmro and ask for ya. I know handguns are a no go but rifles might be different

    So according to buds long guns are good. So you should be able to buy that rifle

    You can take a long gun home but not a handgun. Have bought rifles at a couple of places in KY but had to have handguns shipped to FFL in WV

    I'm from Kentucky and when I moved out of state and got a Las Vegas drivers license I had to use my uncle (Ky resident) to use his ID to buy 2 x AK-47s I got from a pawn shop when I went back to visit. We then did a bill of sale to make it legal. Everyone should have an AK!
