The only other possible reason for asking a question like that would be if they lived out of the country, otherwise what has that got to do with buying a rifle.
A rifle is easily shipped anywhere in the US.
Maybe because you're trying to sell a gun that we can't see he possibly wanted to know if you were close enough to see the gun locally.

Maybe he was just curious.
Maybe he has been soured on the prospect of buying now.
There are many ways to increase you chances of making a sale.
