It's been a long time and I don't remember what's allowed in a transfer. Looking at a DD from out of state. What are my options for gaining posession? I know the registration and tax part but can I go pick it up or does it have to ship to an FFL or does it have to transfer to the FFL then to me? Thanks.

If from mfg or dealer and you want tax free, must transfer to dd sot in your state first.
If an individual anyway, that requires first transfer taxed, ffl in your state first

I've always thought it'd be fun to buy a cannon, then tell my normal FFL/SOT that the inbound NFA item might take "a little more space than the normal NFA stuff you're holding" :ROFLMAO:

Like all firearms if it goes across state lines it has to transfer to an FFL. Legally speaking a DD can transfer direct to any FFL as long as the tax is paid. NFA branch however has gotten very silly with DD transfers in the last few years though. If it transfers to a non DD dealer or manufacturer they're requiring a letter stating that the item is not for resale but going into the collection of the FFL. They want DD's to transfer only through DD dealers or manufacturers. A fellow FFL was told that he'd have to obtain the Type 9 or 10 FFL if he wanted to do transfers of DD's for customers and they denied the transfer he was trying to do. There were no DD dealers in his state. So be prepared for possible BS from NFA branch.

If the item is C&R it can transfer direct to a C&R FFL holder. If you have no FFL it might be worth doing a C&R for yourself to help the transfer along in that case.

Transfers of DD's tax exempt is something that does happen occasionally but is done at NFA branches whim if you don't have a DD license. There is no rhyme or reason to it. I've had a few transfered to or through me that showed up tax free on form 3's. I've had a couple more that were specifically for customers that had to go tax paid. I'm only a type 7FFL so I expect to pay the tax on any DD transfer. Basic point here is that if you aren't qualified to deal in something than expect to pay the transfer tax.
