C&R/FFL necessary for in-state Mail order of rifles?

Anyhow, Im trying to purchase an old C&R Bolt action. Still waiting on my license, but what luck. I find a dealer with a good price in state (PA). Why good luck? Right on the site not two lines above my gun it says "We require FFL or C&R for out of state shipments". So I call them up to see what they want (assuming it'll be a photocopy of drivers license to verify age and address), and ask questions about the rifle. And they start telling me that they must ship to a dealer... so I tell them I'm in PA about a dozen times and they still insist I must go through a dealer. Apparently the guy they have on the phones needs to have a little pow-wow with the guy who put up their website. Because either I need a C&R for instate shipment or not.

You need a license for shipment through the mail--in state or out, doesn't matter.

They, and you need to get it together, or the ATF will have a little POW WOW with the lot of you! sad

Never depend on a dealer or anyone other than the ATF to clarify the rule of law, where firearms trade is concerened. Finding thse laws is your responsibility. Ignorance of the law is no undo to keep you out of jail!
