To buy a gun in Montana, you must have a valid Montana driver’s license or state identification card. You must also be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residence in the United States.
You will need to complete the Firearms Transaction Record, Form 4473. This form asks for your name, address, date of birth, and other information. You will also need to provide proof of residency in Montana.
If you are purchasing a handgun, you must be at least 18 years old. If you are purchasing a rifle or shotgun, you must be at least 21 years old.
You cannot purchase a gun if you are:

  • under indictment or information for a felony;
  • convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence;
  • fugitives from justice;
  • unlawful users of controlled substances;
  • adjudicated mentally defective or committed to mental institutions.

You will need to have the firearm dealer run a background check through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). The dealer will also need to see your driver’s license or state identification card.
The dealer will then give you a Firearms Transaction Record to complete. This form asks for your name, address, date of birth, and other information. You will also need to provide proof of residency in Montana.
You will need to have the firearm dealer run a background check through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). The dealer will also need to see your driver’s license or state identification card.
If the background check comes back clear, you will be able to take possession of the firearm. If the background check comes back with a “delay” response, you will have to wait up to three days before taking possession of the firearm. If the background check comes back with a “denied” response, you will not be able to purchase the firearm.

In Montana, you can buy a gun from a licensed firearms dealer. You must be at least 18 years old to purchase a gun, and you must have a valid driver’s license or state identification card.
When you purchase a gun, the dealer will run a background check on you to ensure that you are not prohibited from owning a firearm. If you have been convicted of a felony, or if you are subject to a restraining order, you will not be able to purchase a gun.
You should also be aware that there are certain restrictions on what types of firearms you can own in Montana. For example, it is illegal to own a machine gun or an assault weapon. It is also illegal to possess a firearm on school grounds or in a courthouse.

There are a few things to keep in mind when buying a gun in Montana:

First, you must be at least 18 years old to purchase a rifle or shotgun, and 21 years old to purchase a handgun. You must also have a valid driver’s license or state identification card.

If you are not a resident of Montana, you may need to get a permit from the State of Montana to buy a gun. The process for obtaining this permit can vary depending on your state of residence, so it is best to check with your local law enforcement agency for more information.

Finally, it is important to remember that firearms purchases are subject to federal background checks. This means that the seller must contact the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to ensure that they are not prohibited from purchasing a gun.

In Montana, firearms may be purchased from federally licensed dealers, who must conduct a background check on the purchaser. A permit to purchase is not required.
Firearms may also be transferred between private individuals, provided that the transfer is done through a licensed dealer and the dealer conducts a background check on the buyer. A permit to carry is not required to purchase or possess a firearm in Montana. However, firearms must be unloaded and carried with the action open while being transported.
