Provided you have a permit to purchase a handgun, if you wanted to buy a pistol from a PA resident as a private sale, do they just have to mail the gun to a NJ FFL, and then it's the normal procedure from then on? Just curious. Thanks.

A private citizen can not mail a handgun. They can ship it FedEx or UPS to an FFL here in NJ IF the FFL will accept from a non FFL. If not, the person would have to have an FFL in Pa ship to an FFL here in NJ.

When I sold one of my handguns to an out of state buyer I had to do the following. Arrange with my FFL to contact his FFL and clear each other. Then I requested payment, after that was received I handed the gun over to my FFL, completed the paperwork, he then personnally packaged the gun and Fedexed it overnight to his FFL. I was done once I signed the paperwork with my FFL. Of course I had to pay the FFL his fee plus his shipping costs.

a modern handgun has to go through FFL's at both ends from PA.
That's not right. IF, the receiving FFL will accept from a non FFL they can just ship FedEx or UPS.

I stand corrected. Just checked with my FFL guy, he said all he needs is a copy of the out-of-state sender's drivers license to prove their identification to fulfull ATF requirements. Me bad.[eyeroll]

Sorry, now I've got you all confused. The seller has to contact your FFL here in NJ. The FFL can except the firearm directly from the out-of-state seller if he excepts his identification. Like TJC said, it's up to your FFL to except it, but it's legal if he does. In other words, the seller in PA doesn't have to go through his FFL to send it to your FFL here, by federal law.
