What should I know about moving to Alaska with firearms?


Answer by  janedoe (701)

Assuming that you're flying there, there's not too much to know. Alaska has some of the most liberal gun laws in the country, so any guns you possess in your current state will also be legal there. To properly transport guns, check with the airline for their requirements.

You should know that there will be plenty of wild life to shoot at once you get there. There are moose, black bears, grizzly bears and lots more.

Basically if it is not an assault weapon it is legal in Alaska. However unless you send the weapons by boat you will have to deal with Canadian customs.

Well you are definitely going to need a firearms license. If you do not have one, you better get one registered now. If you are crossing the border, you will also need your proof of registration with you or it may be difficult to cross the border or cross point.

Alaska is one of the easiest states to live in if you own a firearm - they do not even generally reuqire a license for open or concealed carry. If your firearms are legally owned in another state in the United States, you are not likely to encounter any trouble whatsoever moving them to Alaska.

The Sate of Alaska gun laws are such that you do not have to register your firearms nor do you need a permit to carry.


Answer by  Gabriel (2146)

Alaska does not require permit or registration for gun ownership. You may need to obtain a concealed weapons permit if appropriate.


Answer by  Steve80 (13)

The same rules apply to gun owners in the lower 48. You will NOT be able to drive through Canada with Hand Guns in your vehicle.

Alaska is fairly loose with their firearms laws; however, if you have any specific question, just call the local law enforcement office and they will be able to help you.

When it comes to firearms, Alaska is a relatively loosely regulated place. It still has a lot of wilderness and large wild animals, so having weapons for protection is normal.
