    Hope im putting this in the right section.
    I was in Alaska in late may on a mission trip.while in Fairbanks I went to wal-mart.
    They had an Alaska 50 year anniversary marlin 45/70 lever action with a gold medallion inlaid in the stock. I thought it was a great looking firearm. I made a comment to the sale's person that I would almost take it home with me. He asked where I was from I told him Alabama. he said he didnt think he could sale to me. We looked at there map and surenuff Alabama's in red.
    What gives ???
    Is this an Alaska / Alabama / Fed. law or wal-mart policy.
    I thought I could buy a long gun in any state.
    Just curious.
