    Can sell them in state only to a resident of your home state.

    Well this is not exactly correct no such thing as a residency requirement you can look up the definition of "Intrastate Commerce" because it is very specific. Please see the following from Uncle. We need to be careful when advising of specific Federal Regulations. So much incorrect information out there from the internet I buy ivory and there is a lot more to this than meets the eye.. https://www.fws.gov/international/travel-and-trade/ivory-ban-questions-and-answers.html

    For the real detail and as part of what I do am in the Federal Register frequently see this document the Final Rule neat to read but page 10 is what you want to read. https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2016-06-06/pdf/2016-13173.pdf

    Maybe and most likely will meet the criteria BUT always need to know -- read the FAQ from USFWS on this specific issue.
    To qualify for the de minimis exception, manufactured or handcrafted items must meet (i) or (ii) and (iii) - (vii) of the following criteria:

    (i) If the item is located within the United States, the ivory was imported into the United States prior to January 18, 1990, or was imported into the United States under a Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) pre-Convention certificate with no limitation on its commercial use;

    (ii) If the item is located outside the United States, the ivory was removed from the wild prior to February 26, 1976;

    (iii) The ivory is a fixed or integral component or components of a larger manufactured or handcrafted item and is not in its current form the primary source of the value of the item, that is, the ivory does not account for more than 50 % of the value of the item;

    (iv) The ivory is not raw;

    (v) The manufactured or handcrafted item is not made wholly or primarily of ivory, that is, the ivory component or components do not account for more than 50 % of the item by volume;

    (vi) The total weight of the ivory component or components is less than 200 grams; and

    (vii) The item was manufactured or handcrafted before July 6, 2016.

    Just so I'm clear on this, grips cannot be sold even when mounted on a gun?
