Purchasing from an Internet Dealer or Other FFL Licensee (Incoming Transfer)

If a copy of our FFL is requested in order for you to obtain a firearm you have purchased at a different store or online, please complete the form below, provide the necessary information and we will forward a copy to the shipping FFL licensee. Be sure to include your contact information, including your name, telephone number and e-mail address. This will allow us to contact you as soon as your firearm arrives and will expedite the transfer process.

Shipping Your Firearm (Outgoing Transfer)

All firearms will be shipped only to another FFL licensee. We will not ship directly to a non-licensee. Certain firearms and other items may be restricted or prohibited in other areas and will not be shipped if restricted or prohibited. The FFL licensee receiving the firearm or other regulated items must provide us with a signed copy of their FFL in advance. If you plan to purchase a firearm from us and know that it will be submitted please plan ahead to where you would like it transferred to and bring the required info with you to our shop at the time of your purchase. This will speed up the transfer process.
