Purchasing Firearms (Long guns, Hand Guns) *Canadian*

BrenterBrenter Posts: 10 Greenhorn
My Wife and I are both Canadian- She has an O-1 Work Visa, and I work overseas most of the time- We both call our florida residence home, and carry SS cards, Florida Drivers Licenses etc. My question is
A) what would we need as far as paperwork to purchase a rifle or shotgun at gun or an Outdoors Store?
B) If my wife was sent a Hand Gun as a gift to a local FFL- would she be able to pick it up? again Paperwork?

Thanks in advance

    Here is the form you would be required to submit for over the counter purchase at any store https://www.atf.gov/files/forms/download/atf-f-4473-1.pdf

    However, if you were to purchase one from a private individual nothing is required.

    I'd just call a Bass Pro Shop and ask regarding FFL transfer. Since you have to pay for firearm upfront, you'd be out $$$ if you couldn't complete transaction
