How to buy a firearm online:
1. When an individual wants to buy a gun online and through the mail they must have it shipped to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder. However if you do not have an FFL you can still order online.
2. First, find a local gun store or other FFL holder in your area and get their permission to have the gun shipped directly to them. Most dealers will do the FFL transfer for you for a small fee. Gunbroker.com has a nice convenient FFL search here.
3. Second, have them send us a signed in ink, legible, copy of their dealer FFL by email at email@example.com. Please include the phone number and contact name. An FFL only needs to send this once as it is kept on file until it expires.
4. Third, once we have the FFL on file, you can order online, being sure to enter the FFL’s info in the space for shipping address, and your info in the space for billing address.
5. We can then ship to the dealer’s place of business and you can pick up your gun from them meeting all local, state, and federal laws.
6. If you order and we have no FFL on file, we will email you explaining that you need an FFL, causing your order to be delayed.
