    I have never purchased more than one firearm at one time

    Is there a fed limit or a certain number that who ever is checking the background will freak out over the multi-purchase

    Ex: purchasing 2 or 3 firearms at the same time

    Texas does not limit the number of firearms you may purchase at one time.

    However, I thought there were a few states which did and found the following on Wikipedia:

    As of 2012, the District of Columbia, along with three states have one-handgun a month laws; these states are California, Maryland, and New Jersey.[3] New York City also has this law. The District of Columbia's law was struck down by a federal appeals court in 2015.[5]

    I'm looking at getting the two handguns, 45 & 9mm and maybe, if I can find one, a PSA AKV 9mm pistol, which is 3 at one time

    According to my local FFL, if you buy more than 1 gun per week, he has to report it to the ATF.

    "Report of Multiple Sale or Other Disposition of Pistols and Revolvers, or ATF Form 3310.4, is a form prescribed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) for use by firearm dealers holding a Federal Firearms License (FFL) to report when an unlicensed person purchases or acquires two or more handguns at one time or during five consecutive business days.

    After a rule promulgated under the Obama administration in the wake of the ATF gunwalking scandal in 2011, FFL holders in states bordering MexicoArizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas — have also been required to report multiple sales of semi-automatic rifles with a caliber greater than .22 that are capable of accepting a detachable magazine on a Form 3310.12."

    This is what I was worried about

    I was thinking there was an additional form that was filled out if a person bought multiple guns. I have bought up to four guns at one time in the past, but I never saw that Form 3310.

    Pulling up the information from the ATF and the internet, it looks like it's a form the FFL dealer fills out, not the customer.

    Yep...it's only for handguns, and I've had FFL dealers suggest to me to buy one next week so that they don't have to do that paperwork...pure laziness. It's nothing to fear or worry about. Had one filled out on my purchase several times...never heard a word from any of the parties copied, feds or local.

    Lest it be all good news, there IS another form 3310.12, that covers multiple sales of certain RIFLES...you can read all about that one by googling ATF 3310.12.
