If you have purchased your firearm online, you will need to complete the FFL Transfer process so that you can legally own your gun. We want to make that process as smooth as possible.
Please follow the easy step-by-step guide below:
First, complete your transaction with the seller or dealer; then send an email to: email@example.com and include ALL of the following information for EACH transfer:
The DESCRIPTION of the firearm(s) with any order, invoice or auction numbers.
The SELLER’s information — name of person or business, a reliable phone number and email address or fax number. We MUST have an e-mail for your seller/dealer.
The BUYER’s information — full name (with any nickname), a reliable phone number and email address.
Upon receiving all of the information above, we’ll gladly contact the seller/dealer on your behalf and initiate the FFL Transfer. *Any missing or omitted information will delay the transfer process. Please submit the information above even if we are on “file” with your seller to decrease the chance of any errors or missing information from the seller in the package.
Secondly, please wait for an email from us.
PLEASE READ: If you are tracking the shipment, there is no need to call our office to inquire about the status of your transfer, and please do not show up if tracking shows that we signed for your item. Doing so only slows down the process. Once you forward the tracking information rest assured that we are keeping track of the shipment and will receive updates. You do not have to contact us for updates with the shipment. Please give us time to process the shipments properly, in accordance with federal regulations, in the order that they’re received. We assure you that you WILL be contacted within 1 business day, so we kindly ask you to wait for an email from us.
When the item arrives, per federal law, we inspect it to verify that the serial number on the actual firearm(s) matches the seller’s paperwork. Then we have to log it into our ATF Firearms Log. We do allow customers ONE (1) full week from the date of email contact to pick-up their transfer. Because vault space is limited, any longer time will require previous consent and/or agreed upon storage fees. Any items left beyond 30 days without proper communication, will be designated abandoned and become legal property of the store without compensation to transferee.
We are always here to help. We will help you through the entire process so that the transfer goes smoothly, and you can receive your firearm quickly.
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 the authenticity of them and make copies. If you are unsure of what to bring, bring it ALL, or contact us during regular business hours for clarification. We will NOT transfer any firearms without these documents. NO EXCEPTIONS
The $30.00 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. Upon approval of the submitted background check, you will promptly receive an e-mail from us for you to come in to finalize the paperwork and legally take possession of your item.
If the background check comes back “DENIED” anytime during the process, the transferee is still responsible for the transfer fee per firearm and the cost of return of firearm to the seller. If the background check comes back “DENIED” anytime during the process the transferee will have 30 days to set up a return with the seller. If there is no communication or a return is not initiated after the 30 day period the firearm will then be considered abandoned and become the legal property of the store without compensation to the transferee.
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 toward our team and other valued guests 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.
Thank you very much for the opportunity to earn your business through this transfer.
