Buying a Gun in Idaho
« on: January 10, 2011, 07:13:03 AM »
Cabela's in Post Falls has a gun I want.  Being a WA resident, do I just drive over and buy it and drive home, or do i have to transfer it through a WA dealer?

Pistol or Rifle ? Rifle, I do believe you can buy there, pistol no. Where do you live ? I bet you can find it cheaper someplace else.
Cabelas is expensive.
I could care less about what anybody says..............

last time I was in that area, you could buy a long gun there.  pistol had to be transferred through a WA state FFL and cabelas seemed to have some deal with a gunstore in spokane to do the transfers

Theres nothing special for a rifle pay for it and you get to walk out with it. Pistol's on the other hand they have some company that comes and picks them up and brings em over tthe state line and you have to pick it up somewhere.

I bought a rifle at the Post Falls Cabelas about a month ago (I live in Washington)... not a problem at all.  Did the same thing at the CdA Wholesale Sports last year... same result... no problems.  They'll just do the standard background check.

I work the gun counter at a store in Spokane. You can buy a long gun in Idaho just like an Idaho resident; an Idaho resident can buy a long gun in Washington like a Washington resident. However, handgun purchases are entirely different and require an FFL transfer; if you are not a resident of that state.

I believe Cabela's uses The Liquidator in Spokane Valley for their FFL handgun transfers.

You should be able to choose who you want to do the transfer.  When I bought my pistol at Cabelas I used Sharp Shooting because I got a free day pass by using them.

Just make sure your drivers license has your current address.  If not they won't sell a long gun to you UNLESS you have your current address on your vehicle registration with you.
With pistols you pay for it, they put that money on a gift card, they give that gift card to a dealer that comes out to pick up purchased guns, then you go pick up the gun at their store.  That's coming from a gun counter employee last year.

 :yeah: I went through Sharp Shooting as well. And if you aren't aware there will be a waiting period as well.

Funny story about my purchase, not that it's relevant. I bought an XD, two boxes of shells and a new shotgun scabbard - all with gift cards. I had a stack about 2-3" thick. Been saving them for a year or two - first time the guy behind the counter had seen it.
