FIREARM PURCHASES FAQ


Please note this Q&A is designed to provide a basic overview of the firearm buying process. This does not cover everything you may need to know to legally and responsibly purchase a firearm. In addition, many states and localities have their own additional restrictions, procedures and/or policies for purchasing firearms. The best resources for additional guidance are your local FFL dealer and Law Enforcement agency.
IS BUYING A FIREARM ONLINE LEGAL?

Yes, however the physical transfer of a firearm must take place at a licensed firearm dealer.

HOW DOES BUYING A FIREARM ONLINE WORK?
Federal law generally requires firearms to ship to licensed firearm dealers so that background checks and other paperwork can be completed. 
After placing your order you will be required to make payment via livechat or customer service will contact you with payment details and confirmation of your order. 
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE GUN ARRIVES AT THE DEALER?
The details vary by state, locality and store, but in general you’ll have to complete some paperwork and undergo a background check before the dealer can actually transfer the firearm to you. The process usually takes about 20 minutes but can vary widely, so be sure to check with the dealer to clarify their processes and what they will need from you. Once the paperwork is done, the background check is passed and you’ve gone through any required waiting periods, the dealer will release the firearm to you! This completes the process and the firearm is now yours to legally and responsible enjoy.
WHAT IS A FEDERAL FIREARM LICENSE (FFL)?
A Federal Firearm License (aka FFL) is a license issued to businesses or individuals by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (aka BATFE or ATF) to conduct commerce in firearms. FFLs conduct the required background checks and paperwork related to the purchase of firearms.
