Firearm Transfer In
We do not take transfers from private sellers only FFL dealers.
Here at Shooters Service, we offer FFL transfers. We are listed with most major online sellers. We have the experience and contacts to make your online transaction safe and trouble-free. When purchasing a firearm from an online seller keep in mind that even though shopping online is mostly trouble-free, it’s best to check the seller’s policy regarding returns and guarantees. Especially when purchasing a used gun.
We only accept transfers from other dealers or FFL holders. After purchasing your firearm, the dealer will need a copy of our FFL before your firearm can be shipped. You’ll need to provide us with either
an email address (preferred) or fax number of the seller/dealer so we can exchange licenses
When your gun arrives at Shooters, it will need to be processed before it can be picked up. Typically processing takes less than 24 hours. After processing, we’ll give you a call to let you know it’s ready to be picked up.
A Federal form 4473 (Firearms Transaction Record) must be filled out before you can leave with your gun. Per Federal Law, the owner or purchaser of the gun MUST be the one who fills out the form. We will verify the form and submit a background check. Once the background check is approved, all you have to do is pay for the transfer and you’re all set!
