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!

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

An AK 47... Really got the itch for one!
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!

Handguns have to be cleared for purchase in your state of residence. Buy from PSA, it has to go to a local FFL and you have to complete the paperwork for it.
Long guns are usually less strict. Same paperwork, but different rules. Some states require you be in a bordering stater to purchase (without extra hoops), or I've been told.
Glad you found your answer.

Years ago, I purchased a gun from an Ohio shop, and I was a West Virginia resident. The gun shop owner in Ohio, called up an FFL in WV that he used for transfers.

We went over the Ohio River and did the paperwork, a face to face FFL to an FFL, who signed off on the sale. And I went home with the gun.

If states are contiguous, some allow that kind of transfer. BTW: it was a revolver.

I would stop posting that, the ATF considers that to be a straw man purchase.

You are right to say that everyone should have an AK, or a long gun, that has a punch.

a tangent, sort of. can an ffl holder from one state buy a gun in another non-bordering state by showing their ffl at the store without having it shipped?
No. FFL has to conduct business at his listed address. There is a provision for gun shows but I never dealt with that while I worked in the gun industry.
