I was considering an elk hunt in Colorado. Like most everyone else I just got my dividend and was thinking of getting a Mark V deluxe for the Elk trip. My buddy in Colorado told me I could save about $400 if purchased down South. However, the folks at bass pro shop, Dicks, and Gander mtn said they only sell long guns and shotguns to people from neighboring states and handguns were for Colorado residents only. I was surprised by this and a little puzzled by the law. If I would have been calling California or back east I would not have been surprised. I am curious what other states have this type of law and where a qualified buyer under federal law can purchase a firearm?
