Vermont does not require a permit to purchase a firearm. You must be 18 years or older to purchase a rifle or shotgun, and 21 years or older to purchase a handgun from a federally licensed dealer.
In Vermont, there is no waiting period to purchase a gun, and you do not need to register your firearm with the state. However, federal law requires that dealers conduct a background check on all buyers before completing the sale.

Gun laws in Vermont are pretty relaxed. You can buy a gun without a license and there is no waiting period.
The first step is to find a licensed firearms dealer. Once you’ve found a dealer, you’ll need to provide some basic information such as your name, age, and address.
You’ll also need to provide proof of identification such as a driver’s license or passport. If you’re buying a handgun, you’ll also need to provide proof of residency. The dealer will run a background check on you before completing the sale.

All firearms purchases in Vermont must go through a federally licensed firearms dealer. You will need to complete Form 4473, which is used to conduct a background check on the buyer. The seller must also contact the local police department where the buyer lives to advise them of the sale.
