So say you get the non-resident CCW from the sherrif for Oregon. In Oregon you can buy from a non-dealer(PPT) without paperwork. Could a CA resident purchase a used handgun in OR for use as a carry piece in OR if they didn't bring it into CA? Ie, store it in a locked case at a family members house?

Could you bring it into CA in any way? What if it is on the CA list?

IIRC under Federal law the purchase of a firearm from a person in one state, by a person in another state, is only legal if the purchase meets ALL the legal requirments of both states. Since CA requires even PPT to be done through an FFL and CA requires a 10 day wait, then this type of transaction would not be legal on the Federal level.

A bit more strict with handgun purchases - Feds (http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/Transferring_firearms_Interstate) say must purchase in your state of residence, following your state laws (unless C&R holder buying a C&R handgun).

Any handgun purchase between residents of two different states must, at a minimum, go through an FFL in the purchaser's state of residence. Federal law.
