Out of state is no problem. In fact being from out of state can save you some money. I purchased an M-1 at the south store a couple of years ago. They urged me to let them ship it to me rather than take it with me. If they shipped it out of state, they did not have to collect sales tax, which was more than the $20 shipping. We arranged a shipping date and the rifle came in the day after I arrived home. Excellent customer service!
