Frequently Asked Questions 2017-03-16T21:27:02+00:00
How long does the transfer process take? 2017-05-31T19:54:06+00:00

This varies depending on many factors. Typically, a transfer takes anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks and depends on how quickly each dealer receives the required paperwork and the length of time to ship the package.

Can you ship a gun directly to my home or place of employment? 2017-05-31T19:51:56+00:00

Firearm sales are regulated by the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF). According to federal law, firearms cannot be shipped directly to a home or workplace. A firearm may only be shipped to and from a Federally Licensed Firearms dealer (FFL). For additional information please visit the ATF’s website at

Will you accept transfers from a private party? 2017-05-31T19:50:51+00:00

Yes, if the owner of the gun provides a copy of their current state issued driver license and signs the paper copy in blue ink. Driver’s license must contain the firearm owner’s physical address. PO boxes are not acceptable. Shipping company must be informed that the package contains a firearm and requires an adult signature for receipt.

What shipping carrier do you use? 2017-05-31T19:50:03+00:00

We prefer to use the USPS, as it is usually much more reasonably priced. Other carriers such as UPS & FedEx insist that firearms be shipped overnight and charge much more for that service.

  5. We will seal the package after visually inspecting the contents.
  6. We can package the gun for you if you prefer (with an additional $20 packaging fee).
