FFL Transfer Request
Transfer Guidelines and Store Policies
- We are a "Preferred Dealer" with most online firearms stores. If we are listed as a "Preferred Dealer" with a store, you do not need to contact us prior to placing your order with their store. If we're not listed as a "Preferred Dealer", let us know the stores information (website, etc.) and we'll work with them to accept your FFL transfer.
- Per Federal Law, we can only transfer the firearm(s) to the person named on the receipt shipped with the firearm. The individual who comes in to fill out the 4473/background check paperwork for the firearm MUST be the actual purchaser of the firearm.
- We require that the FFL dealer who will be shipping the firearm to us, email or include in the shipment a legible copy of their valid, signed FFL BEFORE the transfer can be completed.
- The pickup of firearm transfers is BY APPOINTMENT ONLY for new customers. We have VERY flexible hours of operation and will work with your schedule. So, please be courteous and arrive at our agreed-upon appointment time. Drop-Ins by new customers outside of your scheduled appointment time is NOT allowed. With that said, if you're running late or are in the area ahead of schedule -- just text or call to let us know and we'll happily reschedule your appointment.
- Firearms must be picked-up within TWO (2) WEEKS after receiving notice that something is ready for pick up. Any additional time will require prior store consent and/or storage fees. Any items left beyond ONE MONTH without proper communication, will be designated abandoned and become legal property of the store without compensation to transferee.
- The FFL Transfer fee is due for each firearm upon submission of the background check. The fee is due even if the background check is put on "DELAYED" status by the ATF/FBI. Once we receive a "PROCEED" response from the FBI, you will promptly receive a call or an e-mail from us for you to come in to finalize the paperwork and legally take possession of your item(s).
- If the background check is returned as "DENIED" anytime during the process, the transferee is still responsible for the FFL transfer fee per firearm as well as the cost to ship the firearm back to the seller. At our discretion, we may offer a consignment sale option on a case-by-case basis.
- Even when shipping firearms that you already own (as in moving), you will have to submit to a background check, and fill out form 4473, which is the same process as if you were buying the firearm, this is federal law. It is YOUR responsibilility to ensure that you comply with your new states laws regarding the ownership of the firearm.
- If you are a NON-U.S. CITIZEN, per federal law, please bring ALL of your immigration status documents with you when you come in to complete the paperwork so that we can verify their authenticity and make copies. If you are unsure of what to bring, bring it ALL, or contact us via email for clarification. Per federal law, we CANNOT transfer any firearms without these documents. There are no exceptions.
- We reserve the right to decline service to anyone who does not follow our transfer guidelines and policies and/or exhibits any rude, obnoxious, or condescending attitudes either on the phone, via e-mail, or in person. If this happens, we will not initiate the transfer, allow the transfer to proceed and/or return the firearm to the sender.
What is a Federal Firearms License (FFL)?
Interstate trade or commerce of firearms or ammunition was all but prohibited after the Gun Control Act of 1968. Only individuals or companies with a Federal Firearms License can engage in manufacturing or selling firearms across state borders. This requirement becomes complicated when dealing with online sales of guns and ammo, which is why we are happy to offer this service to our clients.
If you purchase a gun online, it is required by law that the purchaser have that firearm transferred to a dealer with a Federal Firearms License. The dealer will then run a background check to ensure that the person purchasing the firearm is able to legally own a firearm.
Once we receive the shipment of the firearm, we will inspect, verify the serial number, and log the product per federal guidelines. We will then notify the buyer to come and complete the mandatory background check. Once the background check is approved the buyer will legally own the firearm.
