    You will need to move here and have green card. With a little paper work you can bring your own gun here. Bear hunters from all over the world do it
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you

    RFI: do you intend to purchase those firearms in Alaska? Do you intend to purchase those firearms from a Federally licensed Dealer (FFL dealer) or a non licensed individual? Will you have a hunting license? Are you a non immigrant alien? Are you a US citizen? If so, what state do you reside in? Are you at least 18 years old?

    While their are many Federal and State and even perhaps local laws that govern firearms purchases, Alaska does not require a firearms certificate as such to purchase a firearm.

    This link provides the Federal Government form one must complete when purchasing firearms from a FFL dealer. ATF also has some FAQ's on web site.
    http://www.atf.gov/forms/download/atf-f-4473.pdf

    Sales by private individuals do not require this form.

    Hope that helps?

    Thanks!

    Hunting License allows purchase in lieu of move here/green card.
    Refer to ATF site and form 4473.

    Thanks!
