Buying Guns Online

There are two requirements to complete a firearm purchase online:

  1. Payment: You pay us directly for the firearm, via one of our approved payment methods.
  2. Shipping to FFL: By federal law we are unable to ship the firearm directly to you, however we can ship to any FFL dealer of your choice. Any legitimate gun store or gun dealer has an FFL license, along with many pawn shops and gun collectors.

Process for Firearm sale:

  1. Find a licensed FFL dealer in your area.
  2. Contact the dealer and let them know you would like to receive a firearm for transfer from
  3. Ask about their FFL transfer fee that you are responsible for. This is commonly around $35 but varies by state.
  4. If you agree to their fee, arrange the transfer with your FFL dealer. (We do not arrange the transfer)
  5. Provide your dealer with our email address or fax number where they can send a copy of their FFL (if not already on file).
  6. Once you have selected an FFL for your transfer, please indicate the dealers name (name on the FFL) on your order so we know where to ship your firearm.
  7. Process your sale normally thru our integrated web store and document all references in the comment field. Please be sure and leave a contact phone number.

Under normal circumstances it is advisable to find a FFL dealer to transfer to before placing your order on the internet. In the event that you are unable to contact an FFL dealer before processing your order, we will be happy to hold your processed order for 7 days.

If you encounter any problems or special circumstances, please call 614-471-0712 or email and we will be happy to address your concerns.
