You will have to wait for background check. Probably go during week, not weekend. Maybe not Monday or Friday either. I had to wait all day when I picked up mine in 2000. But, I think I saw everything there was to see in Big Timber, a wonderful place. I even went down to the competitor's place. I wish at the time that I had purchased one of the original Sharps he had for sale. I got a tour of Shiloh, including the foundry. Great staff and great place.

If I remember right, out of state transfers can only be to people in "contiguous" states. If that is still so, then coming from Washington, across Idaho, to Montana wouldn't work. But they may have changed the regulations. Best to call Shiloh and talk to them.

My understanding is that it is legal to buy a shotgun or rifle (not a handgun) from an FFL in another state, as long as it would be legal for you to purchase in your state. I am also from Washington State and I'm hoping to pick up my rifle in Big Timber. The biggest risk that I see is an unforseen delay in the background check. I'm planning to take the risk just because it sounds like fun. I ordered it in person and I'd like to close the loop to pick it up in person.

I did with my first years ago. Last summer I met Bill Goodman with my most recent in a truck stop in Bozeman and he did the paper work right there. So I would say it shouldn't be a problem. The paper work is just the fed background check , 4473. If it were a hand gun or AR you would have it shipped to a local dealer in Wa. Required by the peoples republic of Wa and king Inslee!

No comment on king inslee. I've been thinking more and more about Bill Goodman. Round trip to BT would take 2-4 days (depending on delays). The money paid Bill would more than pay for the trip. I've been to Shiloh many years ago. It's a different thing if one has never bee out that way. Ed

I’m from WA and waiting to get the call from Bill when my rifle is ready. Hopefully in the next couple months. My plan was to drive out to him to pick it up then head to Shiloh to check it out. Hopefully it isn’t an issue to do that. I’ve never been to Montana so this would give me the excuse to finally do it.
