HOW TO HAVE FIREARM(S) SHIPPED TO US FOR TRANSFER TO YOU
Purchasing firearms online or through an online auction:
Have the seller email us an invoice or other document showing your purchase and contact information. In addition:
If the seller/shipper is an FFL have them email us either:
1. A copy of their FFL in the email or;
2. The first 3 and last 5 digits of their FFL. We will then send a copy of our FFL to the shipper. Or;
3. Have the seller/shipper include a copy of their FFL with the shipment.
If we do not receive a copy of the sellers/shippers FFL either via email or with the shipment, we will not transfer the firearm to you. It is the responsibility of the seller/shipper AND the buyer to ensure that all appropriate documentation is included with the shipment. We will not pursue this through the buyer and/or any other party.
If the seller/shipper is a private party have them:
1. Email documentation showing your purchase and contact information AND;
2. A copy of their state issued identification with a current address.
**handguns may only be shipped from an FFL to an FFL**
After we receive this information we will email a copy of our FFL to the seller or shipper who will use it with their carrier (UPS, FEDEX etc). We will either send a complete copy or redacted copy of our FFL depending on the license status of your seller/shipper.
Once your firearm arrives we will record it in our BATFE log and contact you to pick up your firearm(s).
