Check with http://www.wildwestguns.com who is out of Anchorage and maybe they can work something out with you on shipping from your FFL where you live to them up there.Terry_P said:We will go back to AK probably in 2010. Somehow I have to legally get a handgun up there to use. I may have to get my FFL back as thats the only way I can figure it out. Have it shipped or buy one up there.
Are you going to be hunting with any of your wifes relatives?Terry_P said:It is illegal for an out of state resident to pick up a handgun even if it is their own. I contacted a dealer up there already and without an FFL you can't. One of my wifes relatives lives up there but I think we would be in violation if he picked up my own firearm and gave it to me. I've looked at all angles like taking the ferry and thats doable but expensive and you lose the ride up the AK highway which is an adventure. Fly back home get the gun and fly back up, right.
I'll probably buy a shotgun up there and sell it before I leave.
