Ok, I'm a resident of Texas, currently banished to North Dakota on business. I'd like to buy a shotgun, so I can get in a bit of pheasant hunting.

what am I facing to do this?

Thanks!

    Walk into the gun shop.Pick out the gun that you want. Fill out the 4473. Pay the folks and enjoy.

    There may be residency requirements seeing as how you're from Texas, and you want to buy a gun in N.Dakota. Best bet would be to wander into the gun store (NOT a WallyWorld or pawn shop) and ask about getting a copy of the Proclamation or Hunting Info booklet or whatever they call it there. While they are explaining the difference between canvasbacks and teal; you can inquire as to the hunting residency regs, license fees, private land hunts, etc.

    A resident of any state can buy a long gun in any other state, as long as the purchase and possession are legal in both states. If ND has a waiting period for ND residents, you will also have to wait.

    Let's say a certain long gun is illegal to own where you live. You can't go to a state where the gun is legal to own, buy it and carry it back.

    A shotgun for pheasant hunting should not be a problem to purchase.
